A Priviledge?!

Sleep!  I need sleep!  Help, Lord!

Oh dear, I should probably explain.  In yesterday's Life with Lynnie's (LwL) entry, I mentioned that I had only a couple of hours sleep the night before last.  The night my daughter called me about 2:00 a.m., telling me they were arriving back in Windsor, with my severely injured grandson.

As I mentioned, I never got back to sleep that night.  So, by last evening, I was not just tired, but I was wiped out, myself!

Just before 9:00 p.m., I decided I should head to bed early, especially since I have been getting up about 5:30 a.m. lately.  I could hardly stay awake; in fact, I was falling asleep.  So, off to bed I went!

Within minutes, my phone rang.  It wasn't a case where I could just ask the caller if I could return their call, for it was actually a business call, so I conversed with the person.

You probably guessed, that once the call was done, I tried to go back to sleep, but couldn't!

It was close to 12:30 a.m. before I got to sleep, once again.  Yes, morning came early, because 5:30 a.m. came early!

Hopefully, I will be able to get to sleep much earlier, tonight.  I need to get caught up, somehow!

Just so you know, my grandson is still in great pain and is suffering with his injury.  If you're not aware of what happened to him, please read yesterday's entry.  His burn treatments and bandage changes at the hospital continued today and will continue for a while.

Thank you, to those who have prayed for my grandson.  I appreciate your prayer, more than you know.

However, I must ask you for prayer for someone else.  My co-worker/friend C began dialysis yesterday, had more today and will be on a 3-times per week basis at the hospital for dialysis.  Being diabetic isn't fun, especially when health deteriorates.  I would appreciate prayer for C, as well. 

Thank you, so very much, for your understanding and prayer.  May God bless you.

Hopefully, you won't mind me asking for prayer for others, from time to time.  As a child of Christ, I am not afraid to ask for what is needed.  After all, God told us that we receive not, because we ask not.  So, I ask!

If you are a child of Christ, I know you won't mind not only me asking, but you will also consider it a priviledge to pray for others, even if you don't know them in real life.

One thing for sure is, life is hard.  No matter how you cut it.  It's not easy and it's not simple.  No matter who you are or what your life's circumstances are.

Please know that I pray for you.  Not only do I pray for you, because you are reading LwL, but I pray for you, because you are important enough to me, to be considered my friends.  You are a true blessing to me.  After all, many of you are real-life friends!


Until next time...
