There is nothing like a good night’s sleep.  When our labor is physical, it’s a necessity.  When our mind is overworked, we need rest too.  When we are struggling with a spiritual problem, God invites us to rest in Him – to actually lay our cares on His shoulders. 

Even in those hours when we have our eyes closed and our dreams come into view, He is there watching over us – keeping us safe – giving us needed rest and peace.  He never sleeps.  He is present everywhere and at a moment’s notice.  He knows what we need even before we do and He provides it for us in His way and on His timeline.

Dear Lord, you are so good to me.  Not only do you lead me beside still waters and refresh me daily in my walk with you, but you even care about what happens to me as I sleep.  I can count on you for all my needs.  I will continue to trust in you because I know that I can.  Thank you for being my forever friend.

I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
