835 - Get on YOUR side!

Every time my husband goes out of town one of the girls wants to sleep with me. I don't mind at all because I don't like being on the main floor by myself. I have even thought that if one of them didn't want to sleep with me I would go and bombard their bed!

Elleigh, my youngest, 6, is such a cuddle bug! I love sleeping with her in the beginning, but when it is time to really hunker down and get to sleep it is not so enjoyable......or it gets old quickly.

When El was a baby she wanted to sleep right on top of your chest. Then after she got too heavy for that she would hold your face so that she could feel your breath. Now that she is the mature age of 6 she will sleep on her side of the bed, but has one leg that creeps over and has to touch you all night. She is one of those that wakes if you try to get out of bed. Like I said, it is sweet in the beginning, but by 3am I want my own side with no toes!!!

Believe it or not the Lord spoke to me last night about her foot on my side! He revealed to me there are still areas in my life I want to be mostly on one side of the fence, but still have a foot or even a toe hanging over touching the other side. What Lord, what areas? What things in my life do I still not want to give over to you? What areas of my life do I still want to keep for my own or at least control?

Lord God, I reminded of the scripture in Romans 12:1-2. "Don't know be conformed to this world any longer, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind..." Many things for me are all about the mind. I want people to like me. I want people to see me a certain way. I want to trust in myself and not the Lord in certain areas. I want to take things into my own hands. I want to NOT control what comes out of my mouth. I still have my toes on one side of the fence conforming to the ways of the world. Jesus, help me to be more transformed not only in my body, but most certainly my mind!! Help me stay on my side of the bed! ha! I love you!

Tucker's young, inexperienced team got killed last night. Tucker pitched a few innings, but was not at his best, BUT the other team was quite good. Tonight is one of my favorites as I go to the Home to lead Bible study with the girls and my own kids have church as well. Clay will be home by noon and all will be right in the world. ha Headed to meet with my accountability partner before work this morning! Always a good time! Help me to be aware of YOU!
