Psalm 127:2 says that  "He  (God)  gives sleep to his beloved".

Oh how I wish!   I would love to be able to have better and longer sleep.

But my sleep is most always fitful.  I move in and out of good overnight sleep, ever being awakened by dreams  (funny, fanciful, and fearsome).  

How I wish that I did not dream!

How I wish that I could get at least eight hours of undisturbed sleep.

That wish was at the top of my mind when I finally hit the sack at 10:00 p.m. yesterday  (23rd Jan 2011)  after a day filled with great activity.  

(Regular readers will know that a 10:00 p.m. bedtime is very late for me!)

But I did not get those eight hours of un-interrupted sleep.  For my senior cat Ada decided that 4:30 a.m. today was the perfect time at which to scratch on my bedroom door.  She scratched with great verve and energy.  

She scratched and scratched  so  much that I gave up the idea of sleep and I arose to pet her; to make coffee; and to begin my day.  

O.K. you "writer of Psalm 127".  You may say that God will give his beloved sleep, but my cat Ada decided otherwise.  So there!
