Peace Be With All Tonight
In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, Lord,
make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4: 8)
I can’t believe it…my wonderful day of doing nothing has ended…sigh. The boys, all three of them, are fast asleep. I’m the only dweller of this household who is still wide awake. I don’t want to go to bed just yet. I want to savor the wonderful taste of the day one last time.
The Lord has been good to me, and for that I praise Him. He gave me another day to enjoy His creation and my life. My soul overflows with gratitude for He is good all the time. I pray that I may always remember to give Him thanks in all situations.
It’s time to close shop now. The dark of night is here; but the promise of a new day lies a brief time ahead. Until then, I pray my soul will…”Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you.” (Psalm 116: 7)
