Escape ~ to the land of cotton candy
( The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. ~ the Lord is our only "escape")
Consistency of ~ childlike contentment.
( He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters ~ a child is most contented playing in water))
A gentle breeze ~ under a tree. Birds softly singing life is .
(He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name sake ~ one way to relax with nature , which is restoring our souls)
Close my eyes visions appear. Formation of clouds above.
( Yea, thought I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; satan does his best work when ones eyes are closed causing our minds to wander from God)
Release my soul; going, gone. Soft ~ embracing ~ peaceful.
(thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over ~ repenting, accepting, and receiving God's promises)
The glow of ~ light within. Enhances ~ higher I go. No limits ~ beyond ~ ~ Spirit ~
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever." (God's presence ~ light within? the Holy Spirit; there are 'no' limits with Him. Beyond? Heaven where our Father waits to be reunited with us, His children.
Psalms 23 ~

Our only "Escape" from eternal death is through accepting Jesus as our savior.
With Jesus, eternal life .
Praise God as a child for He is our Father; never loose that 'childlike awe' for God is always to be in awe of.

O Holy Father ~How wonderful and humbled I am that You choose now to reveal; for You had me write this poem almost two years ago. Little did I know then the true meaning behind.
In Jesus name I thank You, love You and will always praise You.
