Welcome to Our World!

Hello! Welcome to our world and our blog! You may be wondering about the meaning of the title of our blog. The title of our blog is based off of the Chris Rice song Deep Enough to Dream, which is about dreaming of heaven. Today we have chosen to share that song with you as our first post. 

 “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
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
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

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

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
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

Deep enough to dream in brilliant colors”

We very much suggest that you go and look up this song! It is a wonderful illustration of the longing Christians have for heaven, as well as an excellent reminder that this world is not our home. Thank you Chris Rice for providing the planet with such a wonderful song! And thank you Christ Jesus for inspiring Chris Rice to write such a nice song!
