Sometimes it doesn't matter how good looking the bed it, or how comfy the bed it, or how quiet the room is, or anything at all. Sometimes I just can't turn off my brain! I think about the following day and what needs to be done there. I think about friends who are suffering loss, illness, work stress, money stress, joys of new babies, new homes and they all get prayed for. I think about our future plans. I think about why I'm thinking so much instead of SLEEPING.
That is what happened Tuesday night. A lot of thinking and praying and very little time sleeping. When I finally gave up and got up, I got dressed and went to work. Work was fine, nice easy pace of helping others and getting things done. Once home I treated myself with a spiced vanilla chi tea and sat down.
THAT WAS THE PROBLEM!!! I sat down!!! I really should have stayed down, but I didn't because why? Because I am WOMAN!
I got up and began my step aerobics - stupid idea one!
I continued step aerobics for 15 minutes - stupid idea two
I then added another 15 minutes to that - stupid idea three
I then felt really sick! So my body crashed and I crawled into that very comfy bed and stayed there- the only smart idea I had.
12 hours later, I am up, exercised, dressed, on my 2nd cup of coffee and ready to tackle the world. Sorry all, when I hit the pillow the only prayer I had was to sleep. God Answered It. Thank You Lord.
