As you can probably tell from yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, yesterday was a rather busy day for me.  At least in the morning!

The afternoon wasn't much different.  I had things I had to do both for myself and for work.  Not away from my home, thankfully!

By the time evening arrived, I was feeling exhausted, once again.

Sitting in my recliner chair, I could hardly stay awake.  Every time I thought I was okay, I found myself drifting off to sleep. 

I watched a movie that began at 8:00 p.m.  Well, sort of.

The drifting off kept happening, over and over.  About 9:15 p.m., when I realized I had missed most of the film, I decided to head to bed.

Climbing under the covers, I thought for sure that I would be heading for never-never-land.  I was sure my ZZZzzz's would provide me with restful relief.

If I don't laugh, I'll cry.

As per normal for me, with my head on my propped up pillows, to keep me laying on my back, unable to turn onto my side to sleep, I laid there.  Awake.  Awake.  Awake.

A few minutes before 10:00 p.m., I got up and decided to turn on the movie I had attempted to enjoy earlier. 

I did this so I could at least see the ending.  lol  The ending was such, that I felt grateful I hadn't tried to fight my sleep to stay up and watch it!

Reading more in my Bible, I thought I would relax.  Nope.

Praying didn't seem to help, either.

Eventually, I made it back to bed.  But, not before just after 1:00 a.m.  Even so, I rejoiced in the fact that I was going to fall asleep and rest for a while.

This reminded me of 1 Thessalonians 5:16, "Rejoice evermore."

After all, we need to rejoice in everything.  Even if we don't really like the situation. 

How grateful I am for His Word.  I can't imagine living my life, without being able to read it.  And, have a better understanding of what God wants for my life.

If you haven't been reading your Bible, you may want to do so.  You may be surprised what you learn.

Until next time...
