Motivational Wednesday?

Well, readers… bad news is that it is about midnight on Tuesday and I’m just now writing my Motivational Monday post.

Good news is that if I keep on this way, I might make it back around to doing these on Mondays again!

So… on to this week’s quote… this time, we have a verse instead… actually, a chapter:

 

1 Corinthians 13:

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.

 

I chose this passage because I am going through it with the 1 Corinthians 13 Challenge, which one of my best friends is orchestrating. I would encourage you to click the link and go to the page… take the Challinge (yes… that’s how you spell it…)… you won’t be sorry.

 

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go get some of that lovely thing called sleep.

Procrastinating on Sleep

Hey guys.

Remember sleep? That thing that some people get at night?

Yeah, I remember those days when I got 8, 9, even 10 hours per night. That was nice. But then I started high school, and said “so long” to those lovely Z’s

There’s a chance that at least a few of you out there are in the same boat… at least I hope so… hrm…

Anyhow… as I sit here, fighting off a cold, blogging at midnight on a school night about my lack of sleep, it seems a bit oxymoron. I suppose it’s partially the procrastinator in me.

Come on now, can anybody relate to me here? A good example of my lovely skills in procrastination would be none other than today. I delayed in waking up until around 7:30, and I was supposed to start school at 8 (I’m homeschooled, by the way… more on that in a later post). I then proceeded to make my way out to the living room couch and fall asleep there. I woke up peacefully to my dog breathing in my face. So I went back into my room and fell asleep on my bed. Then I finally roused myself around 8:35 and got dressed. I didn’t put on any makeup (that can wait until later…) and then went with my sister to Bible study. We didn’t arrive back at our abode until after 12:00 so then I had to do some important things like, you know, eating. Then I sat down at the computer and clicked back and forth from my email, to my blog, to my email, to my blog, to pinterest… to email…to blog… to pinterest……to blog…… pinter……… *ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzSNORT* HUH? Oh…. wow… that’s embarrassing…. ummm….. where was I? Oh, yes procrastinating on the computer. So overall, the most productive thing I did today was go for a run (don’t bother getting impressed, I’m lucky if this happens once a week [exercise is another thing I have yet to get caught up on]) and get some reading done in Great Expectations during Driver’s Ed. And here I am now, thinking about sleep… procrastinating on getting any.

However– it’s never too late to reform. So I challenge you to get 10 hours one night this week. I BELIEVE IN YOU!!! And yes, I will be doing it too. Bonus points if you can get in more than 10 hours or if you do it more than one night. Either way, I would like updates by next Wednesday. I will be posting my own at this time. TAKE THE SLEEP CHALLENGE. I promise, your body will love you for it. It might even do a happy jig.

(“NOOO! IT’S A JIG OF GRAVE DAAAANGER!!!”)

Go for it. Treat yourself to a good night’s sleep. You know why? Because you’re worth it.

I found a bunch of Psych gifs!
