A blessing for bedtime

What words announce that it is time for bed in your house?

  • Time to hit the hay.
  • It’s sleepy time.
  • Beddy-bye bunkies.

A stack of books for bedtime stories

How about adding these words:

It’s time for your blessing!

As you tuck your child in bed give them words that will fill their hearts and minds with peace and comfort. Try out this blessing:

You are a very special person, uniquely created by God.

What a nice way to cue that the day is over.
