Too tired

I just fell asleep at a baby sitting job while having my evening x time after the kid had been in bed for a few hours. I learned through this experience that I do not have much grace for myself. I do not think I should fall asleep while talking to God, but in defense of myself it had been a quiet evening reading quite legitimate and dryly written book on theology before I started to talk to Him. After a couple hours of silence and a long day at school, how was I supposed to stay awake?

I had a bit of a meltdown today because of a question that was asked of me in class. I didn’t have the meltdown until I was on my way home from class. After getting off the phone with my friend, I had a pretty good idea of why I actually was upset. Not really a conversation for this forum. There is a momma bear in me, and apparently I get riled when someone I love is attacked.

Now I am off to bed where we all belong at this hour of the night.

Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

“Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”

“Which ones?” he inquired.

Jesus replied, “ ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,’c and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”

“All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”

Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. – Matthew 19:16-22
