Today is a simple gratification.  I am grateful for good long sleep.  These past two weeks I have been running non stop.  Work is one hectic freight train, running hard, pulling a heavy load and I am the engineer making sure that it stays on the rails while running full steam ahead.  I will admit that I like working near the furnace that is burning hot, keeping this engine running; working without getting burned.  Although I enjoy this, I am feeling my age and my body needs to be recharged.  So sleep….eat well, some exercise and sleep.  I am looking forward to things slowing down a little at work, but that is at least a month a way, so tonight I will sleep well and be very grateful for it.

I thought that this might help you appreciate what hard work and God’s grace can produce.
