This morning my children slept until 6:50AM. This was a answer to prayer and an example of the Lord God doing above and beyond all we could hope for or imagine.
Little has been waking up at 5:30AM for a couple weeks now and that means that we have been waking up too – KB usually makes it until 6:00AM then I can hear her rustling around and cooing to herself.
Last night I was exhausted. As I drifted off into sleep I sincerely asked the Lord to allow Little to sleep later – until 6:15AM, if He would be so gracious. He smiled and whispered, “Go to sleep, oh ye of little faith.”
I awoke to my alarm at 6:00AM.
I got out of bed after the second snooze cycle at 6:14.
At 6:30 I began to wonder if Little had gone to be with Jesus.
At 6:40 I asked Honey if HE had heard her yet.
At 6:50 she awoke.
Breakfast was DELIGHTFUL this morning. WOW!
What a difference sleep makes.
