Awake

Awake in the dark of the night
Pain overwhelms
The noises of the night surround
Family sleeping in melodious harmony
I am laying listening
Crickets outside
Dogs soft snoring
Occasional whimper as they chase rabbits
I am awake and they sleep
I envy my families slumber
Yet it warms me
Knowing they are at peace
I peak in at the angelic sleep of the children
Envy the husband and how he sleeps
I am awake
Pain overwhelms
Comfort comes through the noises of the night

I am a wife, mother, and pastor. We moved from Bowling Green, Missouri to Idaho Falls in 2016. I am a native of Eastern Washington state. In 2013 I had 2 strokes in 8 days and this is my journey of faith, family and health. I believe no matter what happens in your life that God can use it for His glory.
