Last night Rylyn slept for 7 hours straight. This is miraculous to me! Now I am praying for another miracle...that this would happen again and I could join her. You see, after almost three months of not sleeping for longer than 4 hours at a time, my body automatically wakes up after a certain period of time.
To be honest, waking in the middle of the night doesn't bother me. I am still getting good sleep, it is just not consecutive. I am left to rack my brain to figure out any new routine we implemented yesterday to try to repeat the process tonight. If I am still puzzled at what we did differently by bedtime, maybe I will just teach Rylyn to count sheep.
Psalm 121:3-5 (New King James Version)
3 He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is your keeper;
The LORD is your shade at your right hand.
-Just as parent keeps night watch over baby, so too does God keep watch over us! The only difference? He will not sleep. He never tires. He is our Shepard...ever counting and tending to His sheep.
