Morning Person or Night Owl? Spotlight on a New Blogger

Living with chronic illness makes starting the day difficult at times. I have mornings I sit in my chair with coffee while listening to worship music and mutter a prayer like- Lord I don’t have it today, so you will need to carry me through it.

I have never been a morning person. Afternoons and evenings are when I am the most creative. In fact, I write my blog posts at night and schedule them for the morning. The perfect life for me would be to start work around 10:30am so I can ease into the day. Even better would be to get paid to sleep late haha. That is not reality though.

Morning people have intrigued me for a long time. I can’t understand them. They are like beings from another realm of existence. When I have gone on retreats and people are all enthusiastic about early morning group devotionals, in the back of my mind I want to scream out- Can’t we sleep?

Until I have had a cup of coffee and time to wake up, I can’t put sentences together. I definitely don’t want to talk with anyone, so it is probably best I am single because if I was married, my wife would be upset every morning as I groan don’t talk please.

Tatiana is a new blogger. Her blog is She shared a post yesterday Good Morning. In her post she shared about things she loves in the morning. That is a completely foreign concept to me. It is a good post to read and one can easily see her faith in her writing. I encourage you to check out her blog.

So I am curious about you dear reader. Are you a morning person or are you like me a sane night owl? πŸ™‚

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Good MORNING, my friend. Yes, I do my best work before 7 in the morning. But we don’t all want to be the same, so it’s okay that your eyes are not even open yet. God made you that way. Thanks for your blog and the encouragement we all receive from it.

  2. I’m definitely a morning person! β˜€οΈ I enjoyed the β€œGood Morning” post! Mornings are refreshing to me and seeing the morning sunshine brings me joy.

  3. Haha… a sane night owl. I like that. As you know, I definitely don’t do mornings, but if I didn’t have Hashimoto’s Disease, I might be more of a morning person, just not a 5:00 am kind of morning person. I don’t understand these non farmer morning people. What do you need to get up for at 5:00 am in the morning? The only thing that I can think of is the sun rise. I’d like to see the sun rise, but my body would protest. ☺

    I remember a trip we took with Andrew’s parents. Dad was up really early. ON VACATION! Nothing was even open for breakfast yet. We were sharing a room, so Andrew and I were groaning. That’s my in-laws. Insane early risers. Lol. But they’re loved. ☺

      1. Good. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks so. I understand it if you’re a farmer, or your job calls for you to wake up that early, but when you choose it, um…huh!? Lol.

  4. This is particularly funny for me to read this morning. Because I AM a morning person. But this morning I could finally sympathize with people who are not. (Lol it was actually my blog post for the day) And for crying out loud, it is AWFUL!! I’m very very sorry if this is how you feel each morning! You deserve some sort of award each day for getting up at all!

  5. I had this talk with my dr because of insomnia and asking about safe medications to help. I’m a night owl and I feel like theres this negative vibe from the morning people to us night owls. I feel like they look at us as lazy and uninspired. But here’s what my doc said that helped alot!….
    He said studies show night owls are more creative and inspired, while morning people are concrete thinkers. Black and white thinkers. And he said there’s nothing wrong with either side and just imagine what the world would be like if it were filled with all morning people. There would be no art, no music, no creativity. I’m now a proud night owl! Lol

  6. Definitely a morning person. In the winter when I am walking the dog I often watch the sunrise. Early morning is my devotional and planning time, I enjoy the quiet peace.
