War And Peace

1:23 AM Edit This 1 Comment »
Do you ever just feel battle weary? If you do, then you will know exactly where I am coming from here.

My War and Peace

When Shadows fall and darkness arrives,
I will seek the peace that slumber brings.
Like liquid clouds that blanket my eyes,
sleep has arrived.
Take me on my magic carpet
to a land that has no time;
where memories are sure to fade
and dreams come for those who wait.
Immerse my soul in the One who loves me,
safe until dawn, when he will awaken me
fresh and renewed.
Ready for battle,
eager for peace,
I await his command.
Resisting the enemy,
loving all others,
continuing the day,
I then long for rest,
knowing I am in his care once more.

Oh, Sunday. Can I relate. Sometimes I feel like the only way to make it one more mintue is to try to sleep and wake up to the rising sun. (Yes, even in Michigan, the sun rises every day." I'm so glad you started this blog!
