What Sleeping and Devotionals Have In Common

Ok, so to prepare the dogs for a baby to be sleeping in the bedroom with us (yes, we will soon have 22 individual legs in our bedroom at night… 4 dogs, 3 humans) we’ve put the pack-n-play (I’ll call it a crib the rest of the post because it’s easier to type) down at the foot of the bed.  So now that they’ve gotten used to it being in the room without a screaming baby in it, the additional noise hopefully won’t bother them too much.

Anyways, the other night I looked in the crib as I went to gather my blanket (my wife and I have our own individual blankets… it’s what keeps our marriage in tact (JUST KIDDING!)) and I noticed a sheet sitting in there.  I thought to myself, “Self, you havn’t slept with a sheet in a super long time!”  So I got out of bed and “made” my half of the bed like it’s supposed to be made.

Not only was it the most comfortable I’ve been in our bed in a long time, but I slept like I haven’t slept in what seems like forever!  It actually gave me the sensation of staying in a hotel, on vacation, because that’s really the only time I sleep with a “made” bed!  It didn’t feel like home, it was different… more comfortable, more cozy, more relaxing… it was just plain different.

Then that got me thinking… When are the times we have our best quiet times with God?  Generally those rare gems happen at church, at camp, or that one time every couple of months when we wake up early and dive into the Word.  My point is, it’s DIFFERENT!  I’m gonna start experimenting doing devo’s in different places, positions and times.  Who knows what’ll happen!

  3. Dang, Kyle! That was an awesome word. No lie. Definitely an awesome relation, and an awesome idea to try!

    P.S. I like how you said pack-n-play would be shortened to crib because that was easier to type but only said crib once more. hahaha. 🙂

    I noticed that (that I said “crib” only one time)… but at the time I didn’t realize that!
