Where's My Charger?

I have a cellphone charge (that I forget every time I travel), a laptop charger, a camera charger, and I even keep jumper cables in my trunk just in case my car battery needs to be recharged. But today I was wondering, where's my charger? I really need one right about now.

You see, I'm tired. I haven't slept the past two nights. Even if I had before then I've just been tired. Sometimes I'm like the energizer bunny and I just keep going and going and going... but then sometimes I stop and do nothing productive whatsoever. I'm still tired then too.

What does a girl have to do to get some genuine rest? I feel like sometimes I loose my personal charger too. You see God recharges me, but when life gets hectic I stop spending time with God and pick up a cup of coffee thinking that's what I really need. Or maybe when I have some downtime I stop to watch a TV show thinking this will give me rest. But it doesn't and neither does coffee.

He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Psalm 23:3

Really I need to be running towards God when my life gets hectic or when I get tired. God restores my soul and provides rest. For further reading on this subject I found this. Hopefully I will get a better night's sleep tonight.

If I Were My Lab

If I were my lab I would live my life a little differently.

I would never yell at people I love.

I would always show affection, even if they shove me away occasionally. (Sorry Ruthie but you just can't lick my armpit.)

I would know my goals /passions and pursue them patiently. (For Ruthie: Chasing squirrels and opening peanut butter jars)

I would think everyday was the best day ever.

I would never count the calories.

I wouldn't care what other people think of me, I would just have fun.

I would seek to please the people I love.

I would forgive instantly.

Aging wouldn't bother me the least bit.

I would wait patiently for my Master wanting to bring Him happiness.

If only I were more like that silly dog.
