Counting Sheep

How I longed for sleep
as I lie there in my bed
But the weight of all my worries
kept me wide awake instead.

I tossed and then I turned,
but sleep was not to be;
And when I started counting sheep
they ran away from me.

But then a happy feeling
in my heart began to swell.
It was as The good Lord whispered,
“Be at peace. All is well.”

I forgot about the troubles
that were swimming in my head
and began to think of all the
blessings in my life instead.

Contentment filled my soul
and I soon fell fast asleep,
because worry saw my blessings
and ran off with the sheep.
