Before I Go to Sleep


Rosal Beach Sunset (c) Mosler Paul Lapore

Pleasant surprises are coming my way.

I am amazed by You!

“Your thoughts—how rare, how beautiful! 
      God, I’ll never comprehend them!

   Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!”

Psalm 139: 17-18 (Message Translation)
