They say (you know who "they" are) that a lack of sleep can and does cause problems. It affects our ability to think and to handle stress. It affects our ability to fight off disease and to be in control over our emotions. In fact, rats die when they aren't allowed to sleep over a period of days. Maybe that's why when we are in the "rat race" we are tired all the time. We may be closer to death than we thought if we aren't getting enough sleep!
I'm thinking that we all might have different personalities, be smarter, fight less, speak more gently to the children and the dog, make fewer mistakes, have fewer colds and flu, be more hospitable and giving, be able to communicate better, be more motivated, accomplish more for God, keep our houses cleaner and be in better control of our finances if we just got more sleep. In fact, sleep may be the "new" miracle drug for our times. We don't need sleep aids, sedatives, mood enhancers. We just need sleep.
So, the next time you are fighting with your husband or roommate, spending too much money, making your children cry, and having a hard time at work.....GO TO SLEEP!!
I think we might really find WORLD PEACE!
