The Sleeping Couple

It’s our wedding anniversary today, so I looked for a painting to complement the special day. This one fit the occasion. (Smiles) I’m actually not sleep-deprived, but Dean gets up very early to milk the cows, so napping and falling asleep in a seated position are normal occurrences for him. I first saw this painting on the cover of a book called Reforming Marriage by Douglas Wilson. I only recommend the book to husbands and wives who are both interested in reforming their marriage. If you’re not on the same page there, then forget the book and pray for peace instead. And sleep. Sleeping helps.
