I love Proverbs =)

Proverbs 20:13

"Do not love sleep or you will grow poor; stay awake and you will have food to spare."

This is my argument for staying up late from now on. =P But, seriously, try to get away with a relatively small amount of sleep (more than four or five hours, please), and you'll get so much more done. It's a good feeling. =P

I was flipping through my NIV Bible last night, in Proverbs, and it's amazing how many of those psalms relate directly to life today.

Here's another one that has to do with sleeping. It's Proverbs 24:30-34: "I went past the field of the sluggard, past the vineyard of the man who lacks judgment; thorns had come up everywhere, the ground was covered with weeds, and the stone wall was in ruins. I applied my heart to what I observed and learned a lesson from what I saw:A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest--and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man."

That one is more about laziness, though. It is amazing how wise these men were. It's just common sense, but we tend to forget how much is wasted with "a little folding of the hands to rest."

It's Q222 tonight! I hope pretty much everyone can make it!

God bless y'all.

That's an awesome verse...very true.

That's how I feel about sleeping in, though. When I 'sleep in' until 9:30,10 or even later, I'm wasting my day and I'm less motivated.

Not that I have a problem with people sleeping in, but I just know for myself, it affects my whole day in a negative way.

Yep! See you tonight =D

Oh yes, Proverbs is definitely my favorite book of the Bible.

Hmm, 10:00 AM yeah that's me.

I always have to wake up early or my day will drag and I'll waste it by doing school til 6:30 at night or something.
