I don’t know about you, but when someone wakes me up in the middle of the night and tries to talk to me, I sometimes usually speak nonsense 😀  Once when we were quite a bit younger, Cassia came into my room because she was scared and couldn’t sleep.  So in my half awake state I said, “You know what helps me?”
She said, “No.”
“I play my scales and arpeggios”
Then she knew I was not really awake and said, “Huh?!”  😀

The other night Isaiah woke up at 3:30 and came and stood by my bed.  I’m not sure what he wanted, and I don’t think he knew what he wanted either.  I think I was speaking more nonsense because he said, “What?”  When I finally got my words straight  I told him to lay back down on his pillow, but he was laying sideways, upside down, and every way but where he was supposed to lay down 😀  I finally patted his pillow and said, “Right here Isaiah, here’s your pillow.”
He responded, “Okay but, what can I do?”

As I went to sleep I thought that’s what we do…Jesus says, “Rest on Me”  and we say, “Okay, but what can I do??!”   And He, being  ever patient with us says, “Do?  Just rest.  Rest on Me.”  🙂


Last night Isaiah woke up again, only this time he told me he needed a container.  I said “Why?”  (but he thought I said ‘what’)
“A container”
“A container”
“Why do you need a container?”

He must not have needed a container so bad, because he laid back down and fell asleep 😀  We picked 32 pounds of strawberries out of our patch last night, right before a bad storm hit (we had a tornado warning at one point).  So maybe he was dreaming about picking strawberries 😀

    Oh that’s cute 🙂 Heidi and I share a room (she wasn’t on the pinafore video though lol) and used to, if I didn’t ask her hard questions, she’d actually have conversations with me in her sleep 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    That was a neat post. 🙂 I sleepwalk and talk in my sleep and stuff, so I know what that’s like. 🙂
