Past My Bedtime?!

I never thought I would see the day.  Or the night, that is.

That I would be considering 8:47 as my bedtime???  But when I think about getting up early to be with You, Lord, my perspective totally changes.

How could I possibly trade off that priceless time with You???

Maybe I should go to bed at 8:00 instead… so I can be up at 4:00 AM!

No debates tonight, Lord.  It’s 8:32 and we just got home from Tampa.  Doctor’s appointment + miscellaneous shopping + dinner with friends.

Right now, I have a choice:  Stay up late and write my journal or go to bed.  Last night was the FIRST NIGHT I actually slept eight hours!!!  I think I’d better go for two in a row.

Maybe You could download tomorrow’s post to me during my sleep, Abba?  I’d settle for a dream.  Or, even better, just an all-encompassing sense of refreshment.

I’ll need it, given how You have filled my plate tomorrow.

“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”  (Jeremiah 6:16)

Signing off… for “lights out”…
