Well it's New Year's Eve

To be more precise it's 1:08AM New Year's Eve. Seems like the 0nly time I write on here is in the middle of the night. They say if you can't sleep you shouldn't just lay there so here I am. I'd left my cell phone in the car so I didn't have an alarm. I need it to wake up in time to take Becky to work so I didn't want to just depend on Becky waking me up so just went out in the cold night to get it. The alarm is now set. And speaking of cold(s), I have one! I have the hardest time trying to sleep when I can't breathe. Not much I can do about that one, so...
Made a list of things I need at the store. I'm hoping if I can get all of these things off my mind I'll actually be able to get to sleep. I hope so because oh am I tired!
Sleeping in a bit kinda loses something if you can't get to sleep...but at least I don't have to be up at 5:45...that's nice!
Okay, off to try again. Oh, in honor of the last day of the year I'm going to get a jump start on getting back on track and eating better again! I've been gaining weight which is very upsetting so...will TRY to get back on track and eat healthier! I hope it works! Can't stand the idea of regaining the weight I've worked so hard to get rid of in the first place.
And on that note I'll try to zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz again!

Can't sleep

So it's 4:46AM and I can't sleep so thought I'd stop by here. There are some nights when my dreams focus on the internet. Sometimes I'm endlessly checking email (am I on the internet too much? Naw........) but other times it's different. Tonight I find myself focusing on a particular caringbridge site. I visit so many and some that are so dear to my heart are those women who are battling breast cancer. Tonight I was dreaming that I had cancer and was starting to go through treatments. Then my thoughts when to one site in particular. I was dreaming about Dawn B's updates and even dreamed that she was heading to WA. Yeah, should have known THAT was a dream. I guess the reason this happens is I care so much about those I pray for that I can't even "let go" when I fall asleep. I hear that when you're having problems sleeping you should get up and write out what you're thinking about and then head back to sleep. So maybe this will help, maybe it won't, and maybe I'll use this time to say extra prayers for all who are really fighting this battle, and not just in their dreams.
Back to bed, perchance to dream....

Just finished watching Oprah

I hardly EVER watch Oprah but there wasn't anything else on and the subject caught my attention. She had two guests on there, both of whom are dying. I saw two amazing people who faced death with such courage but I felt like screaming at the television, YES you know how to live with the fact that you're dying, but DO YOU KNOW HOW TO DIE?! Neither of them said one word about having confidence that Christ has conquered death for them. Neither one of them spoke of Heaven awaiting them because Christ died on the cross to pay for their sins. It was so very sad. And at the end Oprah had a chance to sum up what the show was all about...again not one word of Christ.
So I sit here and pray that the Lord will bring SOMEONE into their lives to tell them that they're sinners, to tell them that they deserve to go to hell but that Christ paid the price for them, and He gives them faith to believe this as a gift of His grace. Please, Lord!

Welcome to my site

I'm not sure how often I'll write here but thought I'd start it up and see what happens. Still trying to figure things out here. If you've found your way here...wow! How'd you even find me?
:o)
