The Land of Bliss!

It might’ve been a dream, 

but to me, 

it was a reality to be visited only in dreams

I looked to the distance and gazed

My curious heart desired a trip to the land of bliss


I asked the Sailor,

“What is it like to dance and sing under the rays of ocean-light”

He looked at me with a smirk on his sunburned face,

seeing the insanity in my notion


His perplexed look gave way to curiosity

He replied,

“I don’t know, never done it myself

Let’s find out as one”


I prepared for the show

In my truest dream — the show was orchestrated under the heavenly realm


The wind took us out to an unknown distance

Then the Sailor Man disappeared as a mist

I found myself as a lonely pilgrim,

traveling to a place where my heart eagerly waited

to sing the song of songs, 

and dance with the rhythm of the ocean


Arriving where the stars kissed the ocean,

I looked up and said,

“You have turned my mourning into dancing and singing, O my forever audience”


I sang and danced with the rhythm of the ocean in the land of bliss day and night


The twinkling of stars

and the moonlight at night,

the warmth of the sunlight at day, and the roar of the ocean were the signs of encore to my blissful heart

    Amen… beautiful! A true inner joy that is inexpressible with words. Only the love of Christ in our hearts that gives us this beautiful rhythm to sing and dance for Him. Praising God always 💖
