and thought of me…above all…

Yep… the ol’ brain is firing misses today… 

One…two…three…forty-nine…eighty-three…two-hundred-twelve…three-thousand-fifty-six… By the time the alarm rang, I could have knit three sweaters; fifteen pairs of socks; two jackets; twenty mittens; and innumerable scarves… If I could knit, that is… (and if I’d laid there that long…) 

O Sleep, thou is a tempest tossing dreamers to and fro… 

I SHOULD have just gotten up. It’s what I usually do; climb from the soft mattress, out from under snuggly warm blankets and head to the gym where I find something to use up the excess energy burning in my brain. I used to come straight to the computer, sit down and begin writing, but I found I was getting FATugh! So, now, I’ve set aside eight hours to sleep. We all KNOW I only get, at most, three hours at a time, unless it’s a particularly good night, then I may get six! (What? You didn’t know that? *sigh*…Sorry…) 

Anyway, I would wake up, my mind buzzing with plots or challenges for my characters, head to the computer and spend sixteen hours rewriting. (Okay, smarty-pants. Yes, I did/do get up for mini-breaks; and my regular exercise routine, an hour-and-a-half torture test, which I pass every day… I am in pain…) That’s too long to add an additional four or five hours to, so, now I exercise. 

Did you know, if you hang on to the handrails of the treadmill you can actually close your eyes and sleepwalk!? LOL – I don’t recommend it for everyone, but on those nights when you’re tired, but your brain isn’t? It’s God-sent! 

So this morning, at around 1:00 am, I’m sauntering along enjoying my stroll on the treadmill, minding my own business when the dog decides he wants in on the act! Okay, so now there’s the two of us marching on the treadmill (he does very well, he just heels and stays heeled…) If you’ve ever seen the TV show, The Dog Whisperer, with Cesar Millan you’ll understand; he does it all the time with lazy or lethargic dogs. I think mine sneaks out and watches the show, getting pointers and tips, when we’re actually sleeping…*grin* 

So we finish that, (you can’t sleepwalk when you’ve got company), and I move to the elliptical. Well, he wants to try this as well. Not gonna happen my dear boy… If you’ve ever seen a puppy pout… I felt like I was the meanest mum… But when I tried to use the weights, he put his paw down; “NO, ‘member me? I wanna play too!” So, on the leash and out into the dark, windy night. Praise God, the rain stopped and the forecast thunderstorm has petered out. 

Walking the streets at night is so peaceful! Far less traffic; WAAAAAY less people; the only thing you have to watch for are the coyotes, bears and cougars, and even they are smart enough to sleep at night! LOL 

He was the happiest mutt, he doesn’t have to stay on leash at night, he’s allowed much more freedom, and he uses it! Tiredly, after five miles (I think he’d done ten or twenty) I called time, and we trudged home. Him, happily sleepy, going in, lapping half-a-bowl of water and crashing on his mat; (and then when he figures I’m not going to be using it, he crawls on my side of the bed and curls up.) I look at the clock and wonder if going back to sleep will be worth it, as I have to be up in an hour. Well, I guess the kitchen can do with a scrubbing… 

I think I’ll sleep tonight… my brain is buzzing with activity so loudly I’m beginning to think I’m an apiarist (I think that’s the word I’m looking for, when you’re tired, you’re not as concerned with minor errors…pardon ME! Just had a sneezing fit…I have to find out what I’m allergic to! Argghh!!)… Which means I should have a very productive day of writing, (as long as I don’t re-check this…lol) and possibly get all those ideas out of my head so I can clear my brain for takeoff into the soft, fluffy blue yonder tonight… 

MaundyThursday

He came to serve...not to be served...

I would like to draw your attention to this weekend, however. Reminding you of the joy we get to experience as we celebrate the greatest sacrifice of all time. Easter. Does it mean bunnies and chocolate to you? Or are you aware of the REASON FOR THIS SEASON? Someone loved you so much, before your great-grandparent’s were even THOUGHT of HE thought of you and sacrificed EVERYTHING so YOU could enjoy life now…and, even better, forever. Just believe; that’s all HE asks. That’s allJohn 3:16 – For God so LOVED the world, that HE GAVE his ONE and ONLY SON, that whosoever believes in HIM shall not perish, but have eternal life… Don’t complicate it… 

*hugs*
luv khrys… 

Above All – Crucified
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrCW3BA8TIQ

Above all powers
Above all kings
Above all nature
And all created things
Above all wisdom
And all the ways of man
You were here
Before the world began
Above all kingdoms
Above all thrones
Above all wonders
The world has ever known
Above all wealth
And treasures of the earth
There’s no way to measure
What You’re worth

Crucified
Laid behind the stone
You lived to die
Rejected and alone
Like the rose
Trampled on the ground
You took the fall
And thought of me
Above all

Like the rose
Trampled on the ground
You took the fall
And thought of me
Above all………….

PRAISE GOD…Thank you Jesus…
