Where In the World?

May 18, 2006 — 2 Comments

I’ve been hitting the books, and writing like a madman on some tough issues that I am certain you won’t want to miss. They had been planned on being unleashed this week, but I’ve had to postpone the articles (digging through statistics isn’t the most fun job in the world). So don’t worry, I am still alive and well.

I just wanted to share with you something I was thinking about last night–sleep. All of us think a lot about sleep, especially during Algebra or our job. But do we ever consider what a gift sleep is? Can you imagine your life without the gift of sleep? We’d all be dead! God has blessed us with something so awesome. Sleep refreshes our bodies and our minds. It clears things up. It helps our bodies heal.

Every night we should thank God before we go to bed for the gift of sleep.

  1. Another cool thought about sleep I got from C.J. Mahaney: God created sleep as a reminder that we are not self-sufficient. We need sleep to function, to survive. God does not. Therefore, everytime we yawn or go to bed at night or get up in the morning, we can thank God that he is not sleeping, has never slept, and will never sleep, because he is all-sufficient.

  2. Hey Tim,

    Sounds great – except that I just pulled an all-nighter and feel as though I had been hung out to dry.
