Sleep

Sleep has become increasingly hard for me since we lost Noah.

Once I fall asleep, I am usually okay... but falling asleep is the challenge.  My brain simply won't turn off.

My thoughts inevitably turn to Noah and that usually brings on waves of sadness that don't help matters much.  

Tonight, my sleeping issues are compounded by a nasty cold that snuck up on me yesterday.  So, now I sit in the living room at 2am, battling an alternating runny then stuffed nose as well as the aching of my heart.

Praying that God covers you with the Peace that passes ALL understanding, especially at bed time.

This debbie not Ron(he the man with the great words). At different times in my life time. I repeat "Jesus Christ Son of Son have mercy on me" like counting sleep. I try to rest my mind in HIM. We all are still praying for your hearts daily.

Hi Deb. I hope you feel better soon. I'll be praying that God would calm your mind and heart and you can get some sleep. I am almost always up late working so if you just need to talk and get some things off your mind call me. Love you.

Deb and Josh,

Prayers and peace sent to each of you everyday. Knowing that it is little and wishing we could do more...

Knowing that this time in your life is sooooo hard....

Knowing that our Lord has you in His hands and His love will heal.

I have been following your blog via a friend of a friend. Your family has been in my thoughts and prayers for the past few months, but honestly I am humbled by your deep faith and admire your perseverance. May you find peace in all of God's mysteries.
