The Quiet part of my Day

It is after midnight. I just finished tidying up my kitchen. My living room is clean and polished. I am sitting at the table with tea and an open Bible. The house is quiet. Mr. White and (son)Matthew are still awake. It is like they are guarding the home. They do not sleep very much.

I am listening to classical music (Canon in D - Pachelbel). It is soothing.

Proverbs 31: 18 ".... her candle goeth not out by night."

I realize my readers don't like it when I stay up all night, but it is sometimes the nicest and quietest part of my day. I will sleep tomorrow.....

Why don't your readers like it when you stay up?

As a night owl myself I'm just curious.

Mrs. White said...

Are you a night owl Tovah? How interesting! What time do you go to bed? How do you stay awake the next day to care for the family?

The reason my dear readers don't like it, is because they KNOW I don't get enough rest.
Which is very sweet of them.
I don't do this very often though. But it is a peaceful time. As long as I am 'resting' while awake, rather than working myself into the ground, it is okay on occasion.

Dear Mrs. White,

I understand completely what it is like to stay away late into the night and be very tired the next day.

But, I also agree with is the most quietest time of the day.

May you have a blessed & restful evening tonight.

Hi Mrs White,
I understand about liking the quiet. I am a "lark"--my best time is before noon, and I am often awake at 4 or 4:30 AM! So my quiet comes before anyone else is up, instead of after they are in bed. And losing sleep now and then won't hurt, it's just driving yourself to the point where you can't think or function that is unhealthy. Enjoy the quiet, and may God give you rest through His word.
