It's 1:55am as I write this, and as one would assume I either have a newborn or a mean case of insomnia. I have neither... I have a distracting husband who works most efficiently at night and his wakefulness has spurred wakefulness in myself. I find myself alert and thinking of little things I could be doing(like removing my tacky nail polish) , instead of trying to sleep.
So here I am. Blogging. Internet surfing. Pinteresting. Yes... in the middle of the night, I am online. Like millions of others, I fill the void of night with the internet. And this got me to thinking.
|Grandma & I... October 2006|
When I visualize my lovely Grandmother I don't imagine her wasting her precious night hours online. I don't see her catching up on random people's Facebook or eyeballing beautiful furniture on Pinterest (although she did have a knack for loving beautiful furniture)... in my mind's eye, I see Grandma praying with her Bible in her lap.
Grandma knew where it was at... she was all about Jesus. Or maybe reading her Bible was the only way she could sleep (it works, people!)... but either way, her heart was always evident in the ways of the Lord.
At the very least, it's a good lesson on priorities.
