Idioms In The Whole Nine Yards

Aloha beautiful people all over the world! 

Let me jump on the bandwagon tonight with a challenge about an article using idioms from @meitanteikudo promptfactory, and from the title obviously, these will be idioms in the whole nine yards and free writing just anything and under the sun.

Ah, I love this picture! A new upload in my Flickr, just want to share it. Why not?

Today, I woke up so late again. I said again, because I have been sleeping in the wee hours of the morning lately. In my noise.cash post two days ago, I shared about counting sheeps to bring myself to sleep, but, unfortunately, that didn’t work at all. I even tried to add some humor of counting shapes instead, but still was just a go on a wild goose chase. Well, the comments did encourage me though, I love this line from @bbyblacksheep.

“Can’t sleep?

Don’t count sheep.

Talk to the Shepherd instead.”

Indeed, this is so true and comforting. Our mind is a battlefield that needs the luxury of God’s peace. I was reminded that perhaps my mind has been dwelling so much on, the cares of this world, and certainly I just need a heart-to-heart talk with the Lord to calm my thoughts of His promises. 

Life has been fine come rain or shine at the moment. I have been enjoying my work both traveling and on rehab duty, and virtually, with noise.cash and read.cash in between. It seems, I’ll just have to live my life every single day patiently and ardently because the slow and steady wins the race. Yes! I’m keeping this positive perspective just to make this life worth living, and at the same time knowing and hoping that soon I will have the best in both worlds.

Furthermore, who would love to slack in time and in learning. We all want to be busy and productive so often that we have forgotten to eat, some have forgotten to play a bit, or worse, to sleep. I must have hit the nail on the head, let me put that as a note to myself.

“Don’t confuse having a career with having a life.  They are not the same.” - Hillary Clinton

Yeah, right?! I love that quote. Sometimes, it’s okay to loosen up. Getting some rest, more sleep and some time to just enjoy breathing and appreciating life as it unfolds is always as valid as killing ourselves to work, earn money and success. A balance of things and of this and that is important. Take it with a grain of salt, then life will be more interesting.

So, tomorrow, I promised myself to wake up early, fit as a fiddle, and cook something not rocket science, that will uplift my mood. I dropped by the grocery store earlier after work to complete the ingredients. I'll be cooking with my sister, she’s the one suggesting it because we’re both craving for some sweets. 

I want to save the best for last, so leaving you with this verse.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” - John 10:10

I have to hit the sack soonest. Good night and good morning wherever you are, my forever supportive readers and friends in the virtual world!

Blessings!

I wanna try this kind of writing, using idioms. By the way, aside from counting sheeps when I cannot sleep ate I used to play my pinky finger and it really works so far. But yes, talking to God is still the best as it really relaxed our mind.

Nice challenge LykeLyca! I also need to sleep. I've always been a sleepyhead, but lately, it's hard for me to get to sleep. I think so much time in front of the screen is taking its toll on me, hehe

You know that when I wake up at night I pray, but only for the purpose of sleeping. Then I fall asleep in the attempt....

Yes, it is. I am a witness to that. And I talk so much that I don't realize that I'm already with him in my dreams. It's such a special way to sleep that I don't stop doing it. That's why I don't have nightmares, or get scared at night, or think terrible things in the dark. Because He goes hand in hand with me.

Aesthetic photo! Everyone loves the sunset and almost everyone too is lacking sleep. In the morning I would promise myself to sleep early but at night my promises are broken! Hahahuhu
