Sabbath Moments - Quiet


Colleen at Thoughts on Grace hosts Sabbath Moments; a weekly reminder to rest in God, to just be rather than do. To be honest, I was blessed to even have one this week. I had a bit of trouble finding peace and quiet...so it found me instead. It was a hectic week - bad weather, taking Michaela to work with me, play dates and noise, noise, noise. The laughter of children is good noise. Children screaming and dogs barking at the same time...Ouch!

Wednesday night I had insomnia. I tried to get back to sleep but couldn't. I got up and thought,"Hey! I'll go on the computer!" This thought passed quickly as the urge to pray came over me. It was still dark out and very quiet :) So, I prayed the Rosary, the Mercy Chaplet and just talked to God. The Lord knew I needed time with Him and provided it. Plus my sister called and invited Michaela over to play later, so I even got a nap in. Peace + quiet + sleep. Now that's a triple blessing!

  3. I love having those quiet time praying and talking with God when I hadn't planned it. I don't like sleepless nights but I love how you put the time to such good use....:-) Hugs
