When I wake up - I assume it is for a reason - especially when songs are in my ears. And so I wait, and listen...and do my best not to say no.
Maybe it is just so I can let out a sigh or the little half-hiccough that follows hearts that have sobbed - even if my heart doesn't remember crying. Sometimes it is because the quiet of the night is the stillest and feels like a pause - anticipation?
Sometimes some person's name re-sounds like records - stuck - and I must just pray. Perhaps it seems like restlessness - but it doesn't feel like it. The alertness passes quickest if I just go with it.
Say 'Yes' more than you say 'No'.
Remember the song Channels Only? "Channels only, blessed Master - but with all Thy wondrous power - flowing through us - Thou canst use us - every day and every hour". This has been a favorite refrain since I was about 10 years old. And I love it.
