Can I Sleep In Heaven?

I read that Heaven is only light, there is no darkness. I realize that God knows what's best and how we will be filled with immense joy. But, I love to sleep and can't imagine I could be happy without it. Am I the only one who looks forward to bedtime? Oh, and then there is naptime which I have to admit I think I've outgrown.

Maybe we will still sleep but will sleep in the light. Hmmm, I guess that is better than none.

Our Person

In my study of the book of James, I'm learning the impact words can have and the instruction on how to control your tongue. The comparison of our tongue to a rudder on a ship shows how something small can have a large impact.

I am grateful for the wise women I know who are quick to listen and slow to speak. There is encouragement, instruction and even careful correction. We all need a wise one to speak into our lives in a Godly way. And we all need to have our 'person' we can tell everything to and still be loved. You find out quickly by what someone talks about if they are a prospect for  secrecy. Chances are if they talk about others to you they are talking about you  to others.

I Guessed Wrong

It is amazing to me that Steve did not win over death. He seemed to get his way a lot. I think he thought he would be saved. And while he was saved spiritually which is big, cancer won over life.

What further amazes me is that he did not come back. I know it sounds crazy. But, to the handful of us who knew him well, it's hard to believe. I guess I thought he would get up there and explain he made a promise and was going to have to go back. He always pulled through for me,  Now, over 2 years later, I need to give up. I guess everyone has limits.
