Linking up with Call me blessed for We Encourage Tuesday
The baby's been having trouble sleeping lately, too. His poor body is not treating him kindly these days: a cold, growth spurts, new teeth, developmental milestones. They're all teaming up to destroy his otherwise pretty awesome sleep schedule.
Some nights, when my heart hurts too much from hearing his miserable cries, I will go into his room, pick him up, and rock him until he settles into a peaceful sleep. I sing to him, I rub his back, I tell him all about my love for him that grows stronger and stronger each day.
Hush baby, I'm here. I've got you; you can rest now.
As I comfort my child, I feel the Lord wrap his arms around me and sing His love songs to me and whisper softly in my ear.
Hush daughter, I'm here. I've got you; you can rest now.
