clean sheets

oh, i'm so in love right now.
i have this feeling. it feels so right and good and holy.
the only feeling i can compare it to is the feeling you get when you've just gotten a shower, and you slip into your bed with freshly washed sheets. you just melt into relaxation and perfectness.
that's how i feel.

this song is in my head. it speaks of love with the Creator:

I wanna sit at your feet
drink from the cup in your hand.
Lay back against you and breathe,
hear your heart beat

This love is so deep,
it's more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace, it's overwhelming

it's overwhelming. like you don't know how to stand it.
i so do not know how to stand this. God, you are perfect for me.

 a friend of mine once told me that she liked to imagine herself as a little girl wearing a white dress playing in a field of flowers with God. i like to imagine like that sometimes too. some nights, i'll pretend i'm sleeping in the palm of His hand or on His chest.
 one time, my mom told me not to worry about when you start rambling during a prayer or get sidetrack in your thoughts. remember, he's your daddy. he always wants to hear about what you've got to say, no matter what it is.

right now i'm just basking in God's love. i like the word basking. it means to expose oneself to pleasant warmth.
God is pleasant warmth in perfect form.

curl up in clean sheets tonight. bask in his love.
sleep on his chest or in the palm of his hand.

sleep tight, :)
