Retire to thy bed early

When I was young, my dad helped me memorize the following scripture from Doctrine & Covenants 88:

124 Cease to be idle; cease to be unclean; cease to find fault one with another; cease to sleep longer than is needful; retire to thy bed early, that ye may not be weary; arise early, that your bodies and your minds may be invigorated.

I have been working very hard to prepare my house to be photographed tomorrow for listing it for sale. I am tired in all kinds of ways. Last night I determined that I should go to bed early, so I did just that. I was in bed before 10pm. Amazing, right? Let me tell you - this scripture is true! I retired to my bed early and I am not weary today. In fact, I feel more in control of my emotions and have accomplished many things today. What a blessing the scriptures are in my life. I am thankful for their direction.
