Word-Filled Wednesday

Frequently I wake up in the middle of the night, heart beating fast and afraid, either from a nightmare or worry about things going on in my life.

I love this photo of ‘Ukulele, because she reminds me how, just like her blanket, God covers me with His care. It’s a good thing to remember in when it’s dark and quiet save for the too-rapid heartbeat I can hear pounding in my chest.

‘Ukulele sleeps so peacefully in this photo, and though sometimes it takes me awhile to get back to a place of rest like this, eventually I do, picturing God’s comforting care keeping me safe. I listen to ‘Ukulele purring beside me, hear the doves in my aviary cooing in the darkness, and finally sleep comes once again.

    Blessings Mokihana…Love your verse with your sweet kitty! One of my little dogs like to bury himself in the blanket too I pray that you will have sweet sleep like Ukelele instead of being woken with fear & heartbeat. May the peace of God fill you & your sleep time! EnJOY WFW!

    Great picture. I woke last night, not with the fast heart beat but with a unreasonable fear concerning someone else and I had to praise Him. Praising Him, giving all to HIm, and ceaseless praise brings that blanket close.
