The Greatest Commitment



For years, journaling has helped me capture many special life moments. Today I am sharing with you an entry dated July 21, 1985:
I had no idea how these words would transform my life –
    from pain to peace …  depression to joy …                weakness to strength.   
Never for one moment have I regretted one word of this commitment. 
You will be my people, and I will be your God … And be sure of this: I am with you always, even  of the end of the age."   
1. Jeremiah 30:22; 2. Matthew 28:20

Sleep



Sleep can be defined as a state of quietness occurring periodically in man and animals …



In fact, both animals and man can survive longer without food than without sleep … Sleep is a miracle and a mystery … Sleep is a wonderful gift and a profound blessing of the Creator to man.1  
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O LORD, will keep me safe.2  He will not let you stumble and fall; the one who watches over you will not sleep.3
