When you can’t sleep

There are only a few nights that it happens.

Everyone once in a while I have trouble going back to sleep in the middle of the night. Going to sleep is never a problem for me. Going back to sleep isn’t usually either.

But I’ve long decided that if it’s been fifteen minutes that I’m still awake, I’m getting out of bed.

I may pray. If I can find a small light, I’ll read. Sometimes I’ll write.
Last night was one of those nights. So, I did two things: I read and I reflected.

In my reflection, this thought came to mind: When you can’t sleep, dream.
Take that as advice. Take it as a practical pointer for getting through restless nights. Take it as nonsense.

It’s yours now.

Stay blessed…john
