The Highlight of My Day...

Yesterday, was Thursday.  That's the day I attend prayer and Bible study.

However, since our Pastor has introduced a different format for prayer and Bible study, I no longer join those who meet at my church, which is on Windsor's west side; I live on Windsor's east side.

Across Windsor and surrounding area, many groups meet at homes of those who host small groups.  I suppose some good things could be said about this.

For instance, I agree with our Pastor that this will encourage those who participate in each small group to know on a more personal level.  Even so, while I enjoy getting together with my friends and appreciate their hospitality, I still miss our traditional Bible study.  I've said this before, and I suppose that until the day I die, I will probably feel this way.  Oh well, such is life.

Even so, gathering at W & J's home last evening was the highlight of my day!  Thank you, for hosting our new home Bible study and prayer group.  I have no doubt that God will bless you for this.

Once back at home, I proceeded to do a bit of housework, as it needed doing.  Hey!  Let's face it!  No one is going to do it for me, so I must do it, myself.

When bedtime came, I made every effort to fall asleep, but sleep was elusive.

What is it about me?  I seem to go through this, regularly.  Sometimes, I can't sleep, so I stay up later and read my Bible.

Let's face it, it's a pretty bad situation when reading won't even make you tired!

One thing I make sure I don't do.  Even though I have a television (tv) set in my bedroom, I DO NOT turn it on.  While some people are lulled to sleep with the sound of a tv, I am not one of those people.

The only time I turn the tv on in my bedroom, is if I am working in my room during the day or early evening.  Usually, I am folding laundry or putting it away, or something like this.  Obviously, I only turn the set on, if I don't want to miss part of a favourite show of mine, like The Amazing Race, The Biggest Loser, or whatever.  If ever it is turned on, it is usually so, for only a few minutes.

So, it is rare for me to watch tv in my bedroom, ever.

Actually, once I have been in bed and had to get up, because I couldn't sleep for extended hours, is about the only time I turn on the tv in my livingroom, where I won't disturb any of my neighbours.

Although, I must admit, there are times when I get up and turn on my computer.  But, I have to be so wide awake that I know I just cannot and will not be able to get to sleep.

I did not do either last night.  Yet, once again, I was awake for more than half (1/2) the night.  All I did was lie in bed, thinking and praying.

Hey!  It's Friday!  I should be happy; I am.  But the reality is, all I am is tired.

Until next time...
