Good Night

My eldest son in one of his many adorable sleeping positions.

If there's one thing I like doing at night, it would be sneaking into the babies room and just watching them sleep. I love hearing them breathe and I love seeing how peaceful they are. So peaceful that they manage to contort their bodies into the cutest positions yet not wake up. Sometimes I envy them. They go to bed without a worry on their mind, perhaps thinking "Which toy will I play with tomorrow?", or "Should I eat my vegetables or not?". But that's pretty much it. No bills, schooling or future to worry about. Lately, I've been pushing my bedtime later and later into the wee hours of the morning. It doesn't matter how physically exhausted I am. If my mind is ticking, I won't get any sleep. However, it is a comforting thought that no matter how dire the situation, God will never leave our side. Through the Bible we are constantly reminded to be at peace because we are in His hands. I've been reflecting on this and look forward to a good night's rest tonight!

  2. Reese,

    It is true how our children even to them have so many things to worry about. Yet when we look at their problems, we don't see them as anything major. It is the same way God views the things we worry about. They are all insignificant to Him.
