21 Mar Something in my hair… What?!!!
A restful sleep was my plan for last evening. Daily activities completed. Dishes put away. Laundry folded and placed in drawers. Television turned off. Lights off. Doors locked. Time to relax on the comfy bed and snuggle under the covers. Ahh… perfect.
Finding the right position and arranging the covers while trying not to wake Alan was my intention. After a few moments of adjusting and rearranging the blanket, all was well and my body was ready to calm and drift off into slumber land.
Until…something moved in my hair. Wait…it’s just my hair settling down for the night, too. I don’t have a lot of hair so there should not be any “settle down” time for that.
Again all was quiet and still. Until….
What moved on my head? I know I was not imagining things. There was definite movement on top of my head.
Jumping up, tossing the covers back across the bed and reaching for the light switch, I expected to find some bug or critter crawling in the sheets.
Nothing. Nothing at all.
Deciding to get back in the bed and start my whole “settle down” process again, I turned off the light and once again began arranging the covers.
What!! Again. There was definitely something in my hair. YIKES!!!!
This up and down, in and out of bed process happened three times before I gave up and decided the whole thing was my imagination.
One last time of pulling the covers over me. Maybe I could ignore the strange feeling of the little hairs on my head moving around.
A deep breath and I began to calm. At that moment, the heating system turned off and the movement in my hair stopped.
You guessed it!!! A vent is on the ceiling above the bed and each time the heat came on, the air blew ever so gently on my head and made my hair dance.
I am very thankful there were no bugs or critters in the sheets.
Then, I remembered the most important thing I had forgotten to take care of before going to sleep. My prayers. I had neglected to thank God for His blessings and His love. This sure was a unique way to grab my attention. God can use anything to help us listen and remember.
And, yes, Alan slept through all the excitement. 🙂
Have you ever had an odd experience and wondered how it happened? Have you ever considered how God uses things like air vents blowing on hair to get our attention? God is amazing.
Have a blessed day,
