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...
