When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. Isaiah 43:2

There is something so wonderful about having rest these days. As a mom who has had three babies in four years, rest has been elusive to say the least. Even when I sleep, I am still on edge, waiting for a cry in the night, or, since our home invasion, somewhat irrationally waiting for someone to enter uninvited.

But this morning, my wonderful husband allowed me to sleep in...not just a little sleep in either. When I finally rolled over and looked at the clock, it was NOON!!!!!! "Noon?" I thought to myself..."how can this be?" Not only that, but when I awakened, it was quiet in the house. Both boys were sleeping and he had taken Kya to her private swimming lesson (with him as the teacher) at the Solera pool. Ahhhhhhh...seratonin levels were restored. I could face the laundry, dishes, sewing projects and MOPS publicity duties with fresh eyes (ones that didn't tear up every time I looked around the house or toward my overfilled inbox.)

I believe a special prayer lifted up by my pastor helped me find the sleep I needed. Thank you Lord, thank you husband, and thank you Pastor.

I hear you on never really getting a good night's sleep. I took a 2 hour nap on Sunday (haven't done that in years) and I seriously was in the deepest sleep of my life. I'm so glad you got some good shut-eye--you totally deserve it!
