Before the Sleep

I was just wondering...
What do you think about before you fall asleep?

Often, though it is quite unimaginative, I am thinking of the day coming next and all the things I need to do...
And I often find my self processing the events of the day I just experienced. Do you ever have to think things over before sleep will come to you? I do most of the time. It is hard for me to just fall asleep because so many thoughts are running rampant in my head and they need to be tamed before I can rest.

How does this work for you? And then, what do you wish you thought of before you went to sleep?

I wish I always was thinking of God's love and His glory. I do so a fair amount of time, but it should be so much more consuming. I want Him to take me over and wash me with His love.

So that is my prayer now, before I, and you, go to bed. That His love would take us over and we would fall asleep in His peace and not the worries of today and tomorrow.

You know me, I fall asleep without having to do anything beforehand :-D

Oh! So true! I find myself many times worrying about what I had done that day and worrying about the next day.
Oh thank you Tori for writing this!
I will have to remember it.
Luv you!
