Hope for the Middle Level
Oh I loved this so much! I sleep with a flicker-effect LED tealight in a little votive holder which once held a candle bought in the gift shop of Rennes cathedral (with a picture of Mary, the mother of Jesus, on it). And I can't wait to see the Tissot art of the angels ministering to our Lord.
Thank you for this. Surprisingly, and thankfully, I have not had trouble sleeping in the past year. I’ve noticed a change in my dreams and the way they have shifted in grief from dreams of my daughter to dreams of my mother. While I have no trouble sleeping, I was finding that my sleep was not refreshing, and I was aware that my mind was muddy. I asked my doctor for a sleep study that I could do from home to check my oxygen levels. Sure enough. I got the report back that showed significant and scary levels of low oxygen for prolonged periods of time. Yesterday, he ordered night oxygen. I know this doesn’t fit your theme, but it is an answer to prayer. I knew I was off in my mental acuity. I asked for the test. I now hope that the oxygen helps. That and the prayers. I have concerns that keep me distracted during the day. Putting them to bed as I go to bed by praying will help during the day I am sure.
