Contented Sleep

hard at work and hard at play
grateful for the miracle of this day
blessed assurance from my LORD
with Him I'm never bored
a life lived to the max
God taught me how to relax
not a worry, not a care
I gave them all to Him in prayer
oh, the benefits I reap
sweet, contented sleep
thankful for the day just passed
slumber time has come at last
He watches over me when I sleep
oh, the benefits I reap
sweet, contented sleep
contented sleep
sleep
shhh
sleep

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
