Well I would call it a dream if I had been sleeping. I woke up at 3:30 am. Lately if I wake up in the middle of the night I get up, I read or well, surf Facebook or Pin on Pinterest. Last night I thought, maybe if I stay in bed, snuggled in my cozy blankies I will fall right back to sleep. I wouldn’t dare share when I am having one of those worry sessions, lets just say I have to discipline myself after all the cares I don’t cast on the Lord. 2Corinthians 10:5 & 6 bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.
Here’s how 3:30 am went: Oh no I haven’t even looked at tile for my new house; All bathrooms need tile, two showers, a tub and I love that green tile I saw in that magazine. Did I rip it out? I should Pin it. Maybe I should get up and start Pinning.
No, cozy warm bed, chilly family room.
I can’t remember what kind of tea Micki drinks. I know she likes Passion tea from Starbucks, but I want to have everything she loves when she’s here.
I wonder if Lee and Jane Cummings made it safe to India. Wouldn’t it be disastrous if their luggage didn’t arrive? I so enjoyed spending time with Jane in Israel. I would love to see them when we go back to GR. What did Lee think of the books he read on the plane?
Did Brett, our 35 year old, very capable and independent son find a place to live? Maybe I should fly there and help him.
Wouldn’t it be nice if I can sleep?
I should have looked at the website the cabinet guy wanted me to look at. I’m not sure what kind of cabinet I should put in the powder room. Should I put a pounded copper sink there?
I don’t even know where to shop for tile and carpet and Micki is going to be here in 10 sleeps, I better find out where we can shop.
Ok, if I sing maybe I will fall asleep, “Glory to glory to, glory to, glory to, glory to God” Fred Hammond is not a good lullaby. Lord rest is good, please help me sleep.
At about 4:15 am I know Dennis is awake too. His breathing changed, I don’t want to stir. Oh geez did I move around too much and wake him up?
The room lights up. Yes we are so close to our neighbors that when they turn their bathroom light on it lights up our bed room. Steve and Mindy are getting up to go to the gym.
I wonder how Samantha’s squash turned out? Oh no, I didn’t put those pictures together for her.
I got a card to send Rhiannon and Steve and I didn’t send it yet. It’s been on my desk for two days, I need to send it out.
If I get up quietly, grab my warm clothes from the closet, go and make coffee will it wake Dennis up? I know the answer is yes.
I should make granola for Maria and Doug and buy them a puzzle.
Seriously, all these important thoughts and they are all critical to get completed at 3:30 am-5:00am.
The last time I looked at the clock it was 5:01 am. I fell asleep. The alarm went off at 5:30 am. Up and at ’em! Give me strength to do all on my list and wisdom to weed out the folly.
1 Kings 3:14 So if you walk in My ways, to keep My statutes and My commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen your days.”
Psalm 116:7 Return to your rest, O my soul,
For the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.
God gives me rest and He lengthens my days. Oh, He is so incredibly good to us! I hope I don’t waste that time with idol thoughts.
