Sufficient Grace

The day began abruptly,
With cries and whines and "needs."
At 6:50 in the morning,
Making eggs is not my dream.

By 2:30 after noon,
I had just laid down to nap.
It's Sunday I was told--
A day to stop, renew, refresh.

My head had touched the pillow
When through the monitor I heard,
The awakening of my youngest,
Like his sensor sent a word.

"Are you there, God? Do you care?
I'm tired and want a breath."
"My grace will be sufficient;
Keep your eyes on Me for rest."

He strengthened weary bones,
Brought fresh hope amidst the cloud.
His grace will be sufficient--
A promise firm and strong and sound.
