Today I am sans coffee. I'm starting to realize that the caffeine is making my insomnia worse. After a couple of hours of research, I'm almost certain that caffeine after a certain hour makes it hard to fall asleep and stay asleep.
I encourage you, friends, to go lite on the coffee intake. I will keep everyone posted.

Heaven is a real place, as is hell. Sometimes, because we can't perceive the spiritual world with our five senses, we nullify it and all the warnings the Bible gives us. But just because you cannot touch, taste, smell, see or hear heaven and hell does not change the fact that they exist.
God doesn't desire to punish anyone, nor send anyone into eternal damnation. In fact, it isn't His choice. It's yours! Choose Christ today. Let Him come into your heart and guide you throughout the rest of your life. You won't be sorry and I promise you, your life will be the better for it. Mine is. I'm joyful all the time, even times of loss, because I know my Savior personally.

Today's reflection is about family time. I know it's difficult to get all the family together when everyone is working various shifts, but the task is worth the fight.
Family meals and discussions are vital to a healthy relationship amongst the members. Sometimes, it pays to shut the television off, turn off all the electronic gadgets, including the phone, and sit down for supper with your family. Take a day out of the week and visit with one another, sincerely inquiring about daily happenings.
Our families are disconnecting and it saddens me. But we can do something about it. Even if it doesn't quite work the way you planned the first few times, keep trying. Don't give up on building a close knit family unit.

Today's reflection is about healthy bodies. I remember when I was a young girl. I never imagined that one day I would be unable to speak. I never imagined I'd deal with debilitating diseases that make it difficult to get up and down stairs, to open jars of pickles, and fold laundry. I was carefree as it concerned my physical abilities.
Today, I hate I was not more thankful to God for something so simple as ability to move around on my own without pain. Please appreciate your body. Be kind to it because the days will come when the abuse you serve it now will show up later on.
