Shhhhhhh! It's 4 a.m.

Shhhhh! It’s 4 a.m. and all I hear is the sound of the ac running and some snoring.  So why am I awake?  Because 20 minutes ago those sleepy sounds were interrupted by one little boy’s cries for mom.
And I’m up.  Making sippy cups of milk.  Kissing away tears.  Showing him I love him.
I’m blessed.  I’m priviledged.  To be able to respond to middle of the night calls.  To do what Jesus does when we call on Him.  To be there.  Anytime day or night.
And to love.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
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.
The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
Psalm 121


  1. What a great perspective on late night interruptions - God is always there for us!

  2. I do miss those tender moments in them middle of the night. Those were such bonding times. Thanks for linking up!
