Works For Me Wednesday – 3rd Edition


For those of you who’ve known me for some time, or have been reading my blog you know that I have suffered from sleep depravation for many years.  I’ve been on just about every known prescription and non-prescription sleep aide on the market, with no real success, and had to be weaned off of Ambien and Lunesta!  Well, a very good friend of mine recently told me about Melatonin, which is a natural sleep aide and it’s very inexpensive to boot.

Before I decided to try it, I went to and found some very interesting information.  Our bodies naturally produce Melatonin, it’s a hormone produced naturally in the pineal gland at the base of the brain – cool huh!?!

I bought a 60 tablet bottle (3mg per tablet)  at Target the other day in their vitamin aisle.  It was under $4, and came with an extra 60 tablets.  I take 1 about 1 hour before I want to fall asleep and I get about 6-8 hours of restful sleep.  I’ve taken it the past 4 nights and I can honestly say, I feel so much better.  I go to bed around 11pm, take 1 Melatonin, read or do my Sudoku, and within an hour, I’m in la-la land.  I’m also getting up between 8 and 9 am and I am loving it.  I was having so much trouble for the past month or so, when my family was awake, I was asleep.  I would wake up around 4pm, and be up till 7 or 8am the next day.  I would lay down for a nap, then the same thing would happen the next day. 

I can also tell you that you don’t get the weird fuzzy or lightheaded feeling either – I can’t tell you how much better I feel and how nice it is to be up with my family. 

New Every Morning

New Every Morning

Today’s Scripture

“His compassion’s never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23 NASB).

Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria

You may have done something last week or last month that you’re not particularly happy about, but the good news is you don’t have to carry that around with you. That’s part of what the Scripture means when it says that God’s mercies are new every morning. God’s mercy and forgiveness are available to you each and every day. His compassion’s never fail. That means that as soon as you call on Him and repent and change your ways, God pours out His compassion and forgiveness. Simply open your heart and receive it. You can have a new beginning every single day! Do you feel like there’s something between you and God right now? Take a moment and call on His faithfulness. Call on His mercy. Ask for His forgiveness. Don’t waste another moment in the past. Let Him refresh and restore your soul right now. Praise Him and thank Him for the work He is doing in your life and enjoy a fresh new beginning today!

A Prayer for Today

God, I don’t want to go through another day dragging the weight of the past. Thank You for opening the door of that prison and setting me free. Help me to claim and enjoy Your new mercies each day. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
