    Funny you should say that – I did not sleep well last night – and I think I know why

      You have had alot going on in the past few months and many things to think about. Aren’t we glad God gives us rest? Praying for you!

    This is such sound advice. I am convinced that the lack of sleep is the root of most of the ailments that face people today. Great post!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      I agree April! Lack of sleep has effects on all aspects of life from driving to parenting! Who can look good in such cute clothes when they are tired? 🙂 Love your fashion style!

    Sleep is such a must for me. If I operate on low sleep, watch out. This was a huge challenge for me right after I had my first son!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:


      I am the same way. If I don’t get enough sleep my emotions are all over the place! Now, I pray myself to sleep and what a blessing it has been.

  7. Tara says:

    I really can’t hold my eyes open sometimes in the afternoons. I think my body is trying to tell me something and I try to listen!

  8. Terri says:

    I do not have a good sleep schedule at all. I need to nap often

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      My schedule isn’t the best either. Although, I am making my best effort to try. However, I love a good nap and that can refresh me like no other 🙂

  9. Peggy says:

    Right on girlfriend! Rest! Love you 😘

  10. Kristi says:

    I have napped several times lately and it has been refreshing. Normally, I wouldn’t allow it but man, it has sure helped!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Kristi~ A power nap is a wonderful thing to refresh! It is a busy time of year and we need our energy. Blessings to you!

  11. Mamaguru says:

    I agree that sleep is vital! I just can’t nap though, so night time sleep is super important and i protect it as best I can.

  12. Jazz says:

    Thanks for sharing, Sheila! I 100% agree with you and try not to let people make me feel guilty for getting the sleep I need.

  13. Andrea says:

    let me add one thing – make sure you pray BEFORE you go to sleep every night!
