Deep Enough to Dream

Chris Rice

Lazy summer afternoon
Screened-in porch and nothin’ to do
I just kicked off my tennis shoes
Slouchin’ in a plastic chair
Rakin’ my fingers through my hair
I close my eyes and I leave ’em there
And I yawn, and sigh, and slowly fade away

Deep enough to dream in brilliant colors I have never seen
Deep enough to join a billion people for a wedding feast
Deep enough to reach out and touch the face of the One who made me
And oh, the love I feel, and oh the peace
Do I ever have to wake up

Awakened by a familiar sound
A clumsy fly is buzzin’ around
He bumps the screen and he tumbles down
He gathers about his wits and pride
And tries again for the hundredth time
‘Cause freedom calls from the other side
And I smile and nod, and slowly drift away

Deep enough to dream in brilliant colors I have never seen
Deep enough to join a billion people for a wedding feast
Deep enough to reach out and touch the face of the One who made me
And oh, the love I feel, and oh the peace
Do I ever have to wake up

‘Cause peace is pouring over my soul
See the lambs and the lions playin’
I join in and I drink the music
Holiness is the air I’m breathin’
My faithful heroes break the bread and answer all of my questions
Not to mention what the streets are made of
My heart’s held hostage by this love

And these brilliant colors I have never seen
I join a billion people for a wedding feast
I reach out and touch the face of the One who made me
I’m deep enough to dream in brilliant colors I have never seen
Deep enough to join a billion people for a wedding feast
Deep enough to reach out and touch the face of the One who made me
And oh, the love I feel, and oh the peace
Do I ever have to wake up
Do I ever have to wake up
Do I really have to wake up now

Hey!

A lot has been happening  lately in my life. Mostly cuz I’m on vacation! Yay!  To start off I went to a weekend retreat for young adults at Alacca.

The retreat was so fittingly named ‘Armor Up’. Based off of:

1 Peter 4:1 (King James Version)

Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin.

We heard from speakers Mark Kennedy,Josh Harris and Mark Cahill.

 I had the best time I’ve had in a long time. I really want to go next year. If you’d like to go too here’s the place to find the info: http://www.alacca.org/camp-schedule-fees.html

So,then my mom and I traveled quite a ways, to see some family and eat some really great food and do some shopping.
First we met my aunts,cousins and gramma at a Thai buffet. Which was really fun cuz I hardly ever get Thai food,so I got to try a lot of variety.
Then,we went shopping….which if you know me is not exactly my favorite thing to do. But,I got some summer clothes I was in need of.

     

           My highpoint of the day was going to the Baguette Deli -Vietnamese Sandwiches on French baguettes with an Asian twist.

Ok,this place is so good they got a write-up in their local paper. Read it!

I got to stay at my aunt’s cute apartment,ride around with city drivers,hang out with family,go swimming and best of all surprise a couple of people with birthdays close at hand with cakes. (as pictured in my last post)
    Wow…now I’m almost ready to see the five-year-old that I watch the other 50 weeks of the year. Who sent me a post card from her vacation. 🙂
