well I've been up since 5am, not for any reason just because that seems to be around the time that my internal clock seems to go off. Oh how i wish I could sleep in until 9 am. My sister in law can sleep until noon. When able though, i do take an hour rest/nap in the early afternoon. not longer, and sometimes I'll snooze for just 2o or 30 minutes and feel so refreshed. I used to feel guilty about resting in the daytime. . .not anymore. if i get the chance........ I'll take it :0). after all my days are usually 18 hour days, so a nap is in order to keep me semi happy throughout the evening.
I've been enjoying my porch since early morning.... it is cooler and not as humid right now with a few rain showers/thunder storms. Nothing like a morning on the porch to calm my spirit and remember to put my life in perspective and I am reminded about the Serenity Prayer..... in its entirety:
" God grant me the serenity to accept the things i cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace, Taking as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make ALL things right if I surrender to His will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life, and Supremely happy with Him forever in the next. "
well i am going back to my little slice of heaven on Earth (the porch), I think God and i need to spend a little time with each other..... He misses me :0)
