Can’t sleep? Bundle up, go outside, and look into the night sky. Gaze at the stars shining down on you. Look at the moon. Even if the lights of the night sky are hidden the behind clouds, you know they are there. They have been above you and your family since the day your lives began. So has God. Take comfort from knowing this, and get some sleep.
This message is adapted from “Finding Peace” written by Kay L. Stewart in the September 2002 issue of Lutheran Woman Today (now Gather) magazine. Today we remember two renewers of the church, Antony of Egypt, who died around 356, and Pachomius, who died in 346.
