“One sheep, two sheep;
I’m going crazy and crazy is kookie.”
You know that sleep deprivation can diminish your capacities in every way.
Not getting enough sleep affects your mind, your body, your emotions and even your spirit.
You don’t have to go days without sleep to experience it’s draining affects.
Not getting an hour or two enough sleep several days in a row can diminish your immune system, make you feel depressed, and make it harder for you to feel motivated and enjoy life.
But what about when you are awakened in the middle of the night by dark thoughts?
It’s been said that problems loom brightest in the darkness.

My go to is always the Lords’ Prayer or this one, my very favorite, prayer of St Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Love it. That is one of my favorites as well.
