Sleep was interrupted by the whimper and sniffle of tears.
Middle had had a nightmare. Two hours before the alarm was to sound_ the smell of coffee would soon be brewing_ the beginnings of breakfast would be made_ and another day would get started.
But sleep couldn't come for me now because child o' mine was afraid. She had dreamed of ones that rob and take of what is not theirs. Fear had set in, like the fog that sets in over the mountains, and seems as though it will suffocate. Only 2 hours before the light was to come.
What is of this fear that causes us to lose sleep? that causes us to have missed opportunity? that wishes to keep us contained?
Child o' mine crawled into bed. The bed her dad & I share_
the safe place_ where comfort is found.
I lay awake and listened as she slowly breathed again sighs of sleep.
Just as comfort is found next to dad & I... so comes the peace & comfort from our Father above.
Always safe in His arms
Forever protected in His hands
Every fear is erased.... and there we are able to find rest.
