sleepless



Jessica had trouble sleeping last night.  It can get frustrating, because she is not quiet.  And at one point at about 4:30 am I got up and tucked her into bed again.  This time I took my pillow and blanket and laid down on the other side of her bed.  I did not say anything.  I did not rub her arm (she likes that).  I just laid there and slept.  And Jessica fell asleep too.  And it made me think about prayer.  I know in my mind that God is always there.  But when I am afraid or worried I do not have this peace.  It only comes when I pray.  And then I become aware that God is there.  And even if I get no clear answer, just the assurance of his presence gives me peace.
