Angel Dove

Sweet dreams, my beloved

angel dove 2

In the twilight hours of life’s long Day,

as you prepare for Sleep,

pondering the days’ regrets

the thoughts you’d like to keep

The hours, they pass so quickly

And the mind, it soon forgets

Decisions past and present

Sing a haunting, sweet duet

Sweet dreams, my beloved,

From the Angel Dove

As you pass from this world to the next

Into His arms of Love

The sunrise, so beautiful,

gives way to one more day

On borrowed time the clouds give rise

To storms that come our way

The melancholy descant

Serenades a weeping soul

A philharmonic tribute

like classic rock and roll

Sweet dreams, my beloved,

From the Angel Dove

As you pass from this world to the next

Into His arms of Love

And aft the storm subsides

a breath sent down from Heaven

the rainbow to remind us

His love, forgiveness given

a love yet unrequited

Birthed in innocence above

Leaves its farewell cloaked in insolence

Brought by the Angel Dove

Sweet dreams, my beloved,

From the Angel Dove

As you pass from this world to the next

Into His arms of Love

The evening shows no mercy

As we bid our last adieu

The music starts the coda

As you listen for your cue

You wonder what could have been

In fate mates deepest soul

Sweet dreams, my beloved,

From the Angel Dove

Sweet dreams, my beloved,

From your Angel Dove

As you pass from this world to the next

Into His arms of Love

Blessings,

SB

How do you know God is real?

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I have the awesome privilege of being a youth leader at my church – and as such, I have an awesome opportunity to “stay relevant” and connect with junior high and high school kids. For the past few weeks, we’ve been doing a study on how to KNOW GOD. Last week, we found that some of them struggled to put into words how they knew God was real in their lives. As a leader, I believe it is always important to be willing to do what you ask those you lead to do  (incidentally, this is true in ANY leadership position), so I challenged myself along with challenging them to think about how they would answer someone if asked how they knew God was real in their lives.

In my own life, I KNOW God is real because I have seen Him answer prayers – time and time again, over a life time of requests, He has been faithful.  I’ve shared some of those answered prayers and plan to share more over time, however, I’d really like to hear from my readers – How do YOU know God is real?   or..  how do you not know God is real?

Be straight up – I encourage you to think about this on your journey…
