Monday Meme: I Can Sleep Because God is Awake
Going to sleep and staying asleep are simple goals. Sometimes, my brain does not know how to shut off. In my mind, I constantly try to solve problems or schedule appointments. Or THE great comeback pops in my mind, and then I berate myself for not having thought of it ten hours earlier.
I look at my husband, ZZZZing away, and I am jealous. I’ve asked him, “How do you just sleep?” He replies, “Easy. I’m tired and close my eyes. I sleep.”
I can only wish.
At night my brain can process. There are no interruptions or new input. I can focus. That is such a luxury!! I can think of ONE thing at a time. The bad side is that I wake up tired, and the next day is upon me, when I have not finished yesterday.
Earlier this Lent, my dad told me that sometimes I need to let God have a chance. That really hit me. So I do what I can during the day, and then I give it to the Good Lord at night.
There’s certainly no sense in both of us being awake at night.
