Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

Here in Denver we have been enjoying the warm spring weather. This past weekend we reached the mid 80’s and was getting used to the warm weather. Yesterday Mother Nature had another plan and provided us with a blanket of snow that will stay with us for a couple of days. I’m glad I fertilized the yard last night before the storm hit.

I’m still ready for the warm summer weather and so it had me looking back over my photo library from this past summer and I discovered this image. I can’t believe I never processed it, but sometimes it take a second look at an image to realize you have something worth sharing.

This image reminded me of one of the verses in a classic children’s prayer:

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
Lord, be with me through the night
And keep me ’til the morning light.
