Do you ever have those nights when your thoughts are going 100 miles an hour? Funny thing is, the last 2 nights, the wind has been howling and moaning so forcefully. I can see why prairie women went out of their minds, and I'm not even on the prairie! I put on my TV headphones while trying to read, while hearing the wind, the dog barking and Hubby's snoring! Can you say 'overstimulation'? So I hadn't slept the last 2 nights. I thought for sure tonight I'd be OUT.
Or do you ever fall asleep really soundly at first, and then wake up at 2am and aren't tired? I think I have sleep issues! Don't even get me started on waking up with a migraine. My head hurts just thinking about it.
Or maybe God wants more of my time. I have wrestled the last few hours, and prayed. And His still small voice is there, and He is listening to my heart. This brought peace and I could take every thought captive and not dwell on things I don't need to worry about! I'm missing 2 friendships right now, planning the spring with school, worried about health and praying for Hubby and kids, which is never-ending. But God brings certain things to mind and I am grateful He wants to 'discuss' them. Then, I need to be better about leaving them in His more than capable hands. Knowing His plans hold the future and He loves those I love, more than I ever could.
