As much as I hate to admit it, I could actually use some sleep right now, which is why I’m not writing about what I really would like to today. I look forward to Heaven and a glorified body. I know whatever that is really like it will be wonderful. I have to admit though that if I find out we still have to sleep I just might be a little disappointed. There’s a rational part of me saying that I shouldn’t have such thoughts. After all, God’s design is perfect. Sleep is a part of that design and has numerous benefits. I understand that sanity is one of them, though I claim no personal experience with it.
I guess that’s a part of me that never grew up. To this day I hate to go to bed. There’s always something better to do than sleep. I can’t help thinking about all the things I want to do that might get done if I had eight extra hours to use. Since I’ve been married I’ve been getting up really early because Linda does. Most nights I go to bed early for the same reason. I always treasure the mornings I wake up even earlier because that’s more precious time to be doing something. Whether staying up late or getting up early, just don’t make me sleep my life away. Now, I need a nap.
