In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. – Psalm 4:8
This passage was not true in our house this week: there was certainly no peace when I tried to go to sleep! I was sleeping soundly one night late last week and woke up to the hubs mumbling in his sleep. I was still pretty groggy but could hear him talking about something quite intensely.
Hubs (mumbling): Shermerssssslon…
Me: Huh… what?
Hubs: It’s a perfect likeness.
Me: What? What’s wrong?
Hubs: It’s a perfect likeness!
Me: What are you talking about? Is someone taking our picture?
Hubs: Well, yes! Only our Savior!
Me: Wait a minute… Are you saying… umm, is Jesus taking our picture?
Hubs: Yes – duh! And it’s a perfect likeness!
Me: I don’t understand. Why is Jesus taking our picture?
Hubs: It’s just… such a great likeness…
Me (starting to laugh my head off): I don’t get it, hubs.
Hubs (mumbling again): Slefersonkoo…
I laughed so hard at the hubs’ insistence that Jesus was taking our picture. I was afraid that my giggling might wake him up; I had to slip out of bed and sneak into the bathroom to laugh at him. Love is patient, love is kind, love is getting out of bed in the middle of the night so as not to disturb your husband as you laugh at his sleep talking.
