3 am Prayers

 
When I wake up in the middle of the night
and my mind relentlessly gnaws on some bone of contention,
I try to remember Snoopy’s observation:
 
“If you ask yourself a question at 3 am…
and again at noon the next day,
you get different answers.”
 
The daytime answer is more useful; I’ll ask my question then.
Thank you, God, for wisdom words, no matter the source.
Goodnight, mind.
