A Lesson Learned From My Granddaughter

Hope spent the night with me and it was
bedtime.Like most children she didn’t 
want to go to sleep.She said, “Ma Judy, 
I’m hungry.”  I got some crackers for her.
Then, of course, she was thirsty. She
finally said she didn’t need to go to sleep
and she wasn’t sleepy.

By this time I was half asleep. I muttered
“everyone else is asleep and it’s time for 
us to go to sleep.”

Then Hope looked at the wall behind the 
bed and saw a scary shadow. She said:
”What’s that, Ma Judy?”“It’s a shadow”. 
I then picked up a big red Clifford
stuffed dog and showed her that even 
Clifford made a shadow.

Hope then laid down her head, grabbed
 my hand, and went to sleep holding it.

If only I would remember to go to my
Father whenever I’m scared; to hold on
tight and cling to Him. To realize I can 
sleep in peace knowing He is watching
over me. I can put my trust in Him.
