Reminder

Tonight I was feeling quite frustrated and sorry for myself with the sleep situation/night time routine around here. Although he's come a long way, Clayton still struggles to go to sleep each night and actually stay asleep. On a good night, it's an hour ordeal. And most nights, it's closer to two. Add Jackson to the mix and it's exasperating! But then I jumped over to the Kidz blog and read this post. Nothing like some perspective to slap you in the face, not to mention a HUGE reminder from the Lord!

I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
Psalm 121:1-4

Lord, please be my right and left hands (and whole entire body for that matter) during these night time sagas! I figured out that I can't do it alone!!

I'm glad that post touched you and reminded you where to turn. I know the story affected me and will probably continue to do so for a long time.

Good luck with your nighttime ordeal. Night is the hardest time for us as well, but has improved a great deal, and boy am I grateful for that!
