I have always required a lot of sleep, but this weekend has been ridiculous! I slept 12-1/2 hours on Friday and 10 hours last night. I blame the Benadryl!

I am so glad God accepts me exactly the way I am. I read that in two different books today.

“Come to Me when you are weak and weary. Rest snugly in My everlasting arms. I do not despise your weakness, My child. Actually, it draws Me closer to you, because weakness stirs up My compassion – My yearning to help.” Jesus is Calling, by Sarah Young

When God saw the naked woman in the field, he covered her, married her and provided for her.

Ezekiel 16:8, “Now I passed by you again and looked upon you; behold, you were maturing and at the time for love, and I spread My skirt over you and covered your nakedness. Yes, I plighted my troth to you and entered into a covenant with you, says the Lord, and you became Mine.”

“Spread my skirt over you” – means to become engaged and “troth” –  means faithfulness.
