Drifting Off to Sleep

Lily Among Thorns Song of Solomon 2:2 In the Last Days 2nd Peter 3:3

Memories, Chapter 1, Page 54

By this time what had transpired at church today seemed a million miles away. Lying in bed with my journal in hand, on this night I wrote with only a thankful heart to the Lord for blessing me with such a caring and loving family. Turning off the lamp, I laid beneath my cozy covers dressed in my comfy jammies. With a contented smile on my face, I felt myself drifting off to sleep. Unbeknown to me, on this same night of bliss and just prior to the dawn, my life would permanently and horrifically change forever!

Author’s Commentary

Surrounded by the love of family and the warmth of her cozy bed-covers. Lily drifts off to sleep feeling safe and secure as she had done so since she was a little girl, and for as long as she can remember. Home was a place she could always feel free from harm, and her parents were a reassuring comfort knowing she could forever count on their constant steadfast love.

Lily’s home life was one of welcome smiles and sweet sayings. But Lily was not naive enough not to know of the unkindness in the world, it just seemed so incomprehensible to her pure heart. How can her faithful devotion to the God of the Bible could cause such controversy.

All the signs of the “Last Days” were becoming clearer with each passing day, and a malevolent force was now on the move lusting after that which is wholesome. Something of which, Lily cannot imagine how can this be! 

All in all and on this one night. Lily prefers to drift off to sleep in a sweet repose looking forward to a future with heartfelt promises in the morrow.
