Sweet Sleep

Sleep quote

        A good night's sleep has been a rare occasion for me in the past year or so.  Yes, I'm a clock watcher and a superb subtractor.  I really do think time passes at a snail's pace in the wee hours of the night when one is wide awake.
        Finally, this week I've been given two sources of pressure pain relief so that I can sleep.  The first relief was an ointment that Karla had used on other clients for pressure points.  The redness of my skin was helped immediately...yeah.  The second form of relief was a new remote for my bed.  I can now adjust myself with a push of a button, even in the middle of the night.
        This may seem trivial to some, but sweet sleep is something we often take for granted.  I hope my days of dreading the night hours are over.  I hope 'Sleepy Town' will be a pleasant place to visit for more than an hour or two.


  1. We often have to loose or give something up to know how much we value it, sleep it on of those items. Sweet dreams...Love you ------Dad

  2. I understand, and am glad you found relief. You are such an encouragement to others. I look forward to your blogs each day. Bonnie

  3. Last night was a sleepless night for me. Lucy is not used to the kids being away and wants to sleep in our bed. No, no, no! She is a hot little heater that sleeps right against you. So we kept putting her back in her bed. But it was a good night for that, because I had several things that I felt urged to pray about. I think sometimes the Lord lets us stay awake so we can pray. (I guess it would be easier if I'd just pray more during the day! ):
