Sleep!

It’s amazing what a good night’s sleep will do for your mental health!

My husband and son have arrived home from New York.  After they returned, I isolated myself in my sewing room because I was on call for my dental office and needed to be able to go in to my office.  The set-up of this room was perfect for this.  I had an attached bathroom and a sleeper sofa (description of this room can be found in an earlier blog post).  

Unfortunately, this room is also the place that my cat, Onyx, spends most of her time.  Sleeping in the room was not as peaceful as I would have liked. The first night I slept in the room, I tried shutting her out.  This lead to her sitting directly outside the door, meowing loudly and scratching at the door for two hours.  I finally gave up and let her in.  After that she wanted to sleep right by, if not on, my face.  The past two nights I slept in my own bed and have had a couple of good nights of sleep.

While on call, I was also unable to go for my daily walk due the number of calls I was receiving and needing to spend time at my office.  Now that I am off call, I am able to get out and go for a walk again – it is really beneficial.  Once again, it was amazing to have a song come on my playlist that spoke to me and calmed my mind and heart. 

Sleepless Night Fernando Ortega
Another sleepless night
I’m turning in my bed
Long before the red sun rises
In these early hours
I’m falling again
Into the river of my worries
When the river runs away
I find a shelter in your name
 
Jesus, only light on the shore
Only hope in the storm
Jesus, let me fly to your side
There I would hide, Jesus
 
Hear my anxious prayer
The beating of my heart
The pulse and the measure of my unbelief
Speak your words to me
Before I come apart
Help me believe in what I cannot see
Before the river runs away
I will call upon your name
 
Jesus, only light on the shore
Only hope in the storm
Jesus, let me fly to your side
There I would hide, Jesus
