Jeremiah 31:25 I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint."
For some reason my sleep habits have reverted to BS.(Before Surgery). I attributed my lack of shut eye during the night was related to the stress I had from work. I was overworked through no fault of anyone, but myself. Since my bunion surgery on January 5 of this year, I have been closed to business. The first weeks were wonderful. I slept in (until 6 a.m., sometimes even 7:30) most mornings. The last week the old habit of waking around 2 a.m. has resurfaced. To coherce the sandman to return, I moved to the couch and the television softly lulled me back to sleep. A week or so of that routine left me feeling exhausted.
Today I sprawled on the couch for what I thought was a short afternoon nap. Two hours later the door bell brought me back to the land of the living. I guess I was really tired.
I am so grateful for the position I am in life. I was able to rest when I needed without a guilty feeling. I let no one down as I refreshed my weary body. When my body is rested, so is my soul. And for that I am extremely thankful to God.
