Peace Abiding Settles Deep

Baby stars caught
in a silken web
spun on angel looms,
Sleep creeps into
tiny children's rooms
Peace abiding settles deep
Sickness and care
replaced by sleep
The sweetest dreams
all night unfold
to weave their magic
in tiny souls
(Kat Cavanaugh-LaMantia)

The grandson of dear friends struggles with the time change between Japan and Dallas. Sleep eludes him. His military Daddy who stayed behind probably isn't sleeping well either.

I have a tired friend with sick children who are on the mend but now she is exhausted.

Sleep well. God will watch through the night. The Lord will guard your fields.

A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year. Deuteronomy 11:11-13

What do YOU need to forget and leave in the Lord's care so you can drink in delicious sleep and rest? Settle in. He is with you all night loving you and looking out for all that concerns you. You are His land, His field. His eyes are upon you from beginning to end.

...thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. Proverbs 3:24

Sleep sweet. There is a "thou shalt" in there with your name on it. You are His baby after all.

For Asa & Ben & Asher
