If you look at this verse in context, it doesn't really fit (it's from the chapter where Jesus leaves his disciples to keep watch while He goes to pray and they keep falling asleep!). Hopefully, if Jesus asked me to keep watch for an hour, I could stay awake, but my eyes are extremely heavy today, and I feel like stretching out on the bed like this picture of my son a few months ago. He was sleepy!
So far, it has been The Year of the Tornado in the Midwest. Or The Year of The Really Loud Thunder That Wakes Up Jenelle. We have been getting so many storms all spring, and storms are predicted for almost everyday of the upcoming week. The poor weather guys have been working overtime.
Last night Colter cried around 11:30 and needed his mommy. Then just as I was getting back to sleep the tornado sirens went off (the second time in two days), so I woke up again and worried about that for awhile wondering what to do (we have no basement and no shelter so I'm always in a quandary about where the safest place in the house is--we don't really have a good place that meets all the no window, no outside wall requirements). After I fell asleep again, ANOTHER storm went through! Good grief. What am I doing blogging??? I need to go take a nap with my baby. Good night.
