Wednesday's Word - Sleep.....

I don't sleep well and haven't for quite some time.
I have no idea why.
My Momma always asks,
 "What's bothering you that you can't sleep"?

I really can't put my finger on anything "bothering" me.
I chalk it up to my age.....
something I find I blame a lot of things on these days.....
I just don't think I require a lot of sleep.
I used to could get by on 6 hours.....
now I'm finding that 5 hours is about all I can get in one stretch.

I find that my sleeplessness can be beneficial, though.
If I'm working on a project and hit a snag,
the solution will come to me a lot of times in the night.
I also use the time to pray for others who are struggling with things a zillion times worse than lack of sleep!

So, in honor of.....
or in my case, in memory of.....
that's the word I think I'll "ponder" on today!


Now, this has got to be the exact reason I don't sleep well.....

Yep....that's gotta be it!

HOPE everybody has a wonderful Wednesday!

Breathing in Grace,

  1. Hi Deb, Thanks for stopping by. I love the tea towel you made for Cindy, and I looked at your crafts on your site here and I must say, you are very talented. Love your blog url; Jeremiah 29:11 is one of my very favorite verses. Love your blog header photo too - are those roses? Being a gardener I should know, but they don't look like the roses I raise. Lovely nonetheless! :)
    As to sleep, of course you've heard to avoid caffeine after 2 pm. Also, here's my trick - I have issues too but these help: Recite the Lord's Prayer, over and probably won't say it too many times before you fall asleep. Or, deep breathing. Slow deep breath through the nose, breathe out through pursed lips. It is amazing how deep breathing calms the mind. Best wishes and God bless! Glad to make your acquaintance, Deb.
