I follow The Gypsy Mama's blog.  She is encouraging and refreshing and real.  I love to read what she writes.  Every Friday, she hosts 5 minute Friday.  Today, I thought I would give it a go.

Now, that I'm a mama I fully understand the meaning of being awake.  Almost eight months ago, I enjoyed 8+ hours of uninterrupted sleep...every night...every single one. 

Now, I wake up at the most random times.  Not because Sweet Petite is awake, but something rouses me from my coveted slumber and I stumble to her room to check on her.  And then I find myself watching her for a few minutes as she sleeps peacefully. 

As I was pondering this today, I realized that my Father watches over me without sleeping.  He is always awake...wide awake.  He watches over me every single minute of every single day.  I take comfort in that knowledge.  I rest peacefully knowing He is on guard. 

"He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber."
~Psalm 121:3

He watches over me.  He watches over you.  So, rest comfortably, knowing He will not fall asleep...He will not let you stumble.  He is keeping watch...always awake!

  1. Loved this...good things to remember in the wee hours of the morning...if you're awake!

  2. First of all, hello! It's nice to be a first-time reader. I LOVE your font! I immediately became all the more cozy and relaxed in my chair as your page loaded and your blog welcomed me. Fun and friendly!

    Secondly, what a wonderful reminder that He is continually watching over us. I love the verse you referenced. It is so true; so joyfully, comfortably true. Thank you for your words of wisdom! They are enriching.
