Sunday 10/17/10 - "ELUSIVE SLEEP" - Sunday 160



SUNDAY 160



"ELUSIVE SLEEP"


Hour of sleep arrives, eyes are closed
But behind the lids, mind remains awake
In that place too many thoughts exposed
Causing anxiety, fear, the heart to ache




Prayer Girl


Sunday 160 is hosted by Monkey Man.

I have heard that as well. Letting go is a good idea in so much. I know that it works with people as well.

My sleep was just like that last night. Perfect 160. Sorry your mind is so troubled.

sounds familiar to me...as soon as one is busy, things are ok - but the moment, the eyes are closed...the racing cars get started...

I both love and hate that quote.. it means letting go, which I don't like to do... but it also means knowing God's true love for us... which is more powerful than anything I've ever known...

I wish I knew how to let go with Grace... so often, I just can't without a little kicking and screaming...

Thank God for you all, who seem to understand that at a level that no one I've ever known really can!

Anxiety and night time I hate. I hope you get some good sleep, because it always make things seem better. Bless you my friend. Great 160.

My mind always starts to spin when I lay down...I guess it's cause I stay so busy, it tries to catch up with me at night... :)

You said it perfectly for me. Knock on wood, those kind of nights continue to be few.
