A Look Back At December 2012

Well here we are the last day of the month, even better it’s the last day of the year! Where did the year go?

Since it’s the last day of the month, I’m taking a look back at December 2012. Wow, was it a busy month! I’m ready to get back to some “normal”{umm, what is normal?}.

This month I shared 12 Days to a More Fashionable Christmas. I picked some of them out to share with you today but you can find all of them here.

Beauty For the Heart~~I love this quote by Erma Bombeck, “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, I used everything you gave me.”

Have a blessed day!

Each year, the Better Sleep Council (BSC) conducts a stress and sleep survey to find out what keeps Americans up at night. This year’s findings revealed a range of insights on women’s stress and sleep cycles. Here are some of the results:

  • 27% of women say sleep is the most important component to their overall well-being
  • 16% of women would try getting a good night’s sleep to improve their overall wellness
  • 31% of suburban moms are likely to make sleep a priority
  • 50% of women with children agree that sleep is the best way to recharge, nine points higher than women without children
  • 45% of women agree they feel most refreshed after a good night’s sleep
  • 26% of women are likely to invest in a mattress as an in-home wellness item

This time of the year we are all lacking sleep but God wants us to rest. Matthew 11:28-29 says, “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Aww rest, that’s what our body needs and most of us are not getting enough.

So this week Courtney from Women Living Well is challenging us to get some much needed sleep:

Pull out your calendar and SCHEDULE a night where you will go to bed very very early. Take your Bible with you to bed and read in bed for at least 5 minutes. Read in Isaiah 7:14, Micah 5:2, Jeremiah 23:5, and Isaiah 53. These are prophecies that were fulfilled by the birth and life of Jesus. Get extra blankets for a warm nights rest, pray God gives you deep rest and that no one wakes you. Then turn out the lights and sleep. I pray that when you wake, you face the new day of Christmas stress with extra strength and vigor.

I’m excited about this challenge because I love sleep!! I just need to schedule it. :-)
