08. Visions Of God

Life Is A Church
by David Phelps


She gently falls asleep
Her head is laid upon my lap
The highway sings a soothing lullaby
My daughter here beside me
My little boy is in the backseat
Outlined by the headlights from behind
I ask the Lord to freeze us here in time
As my son reaches out his hand to mine

Silhouettes sent from Heaven
Paint a portrait of eternal things
A fleeting glimpse like a vapor
Brings remembrance of what is holy
Clean and pure, unblemished and unflawed
Oh, come to me sweet visions of God

I hear her whisper sweetly
I made this for you, Daddy
Her crayon masterpiece says, “I love you”
At last a bedtime story
They rush to get beneath the sheets
For Peter Pan, Pinocchio, and Pooh
They cling to every word until the end
Then they close their eyes and drift to Neverland


So often I have missed Him
Like a shadow in the night
A familiar face I fail to recognize
But He is there in pigtails,
Peek-a-boo, and piggyback rides
A kiss, a gentle touch, a baby’s cry


By David Phelps

Behind the Song:
"I was driving home one night with the kids in the car, and what is now the lyric of this song just began to happen. It was one of those times when I realized how precious each minute was and how quickly it was gone. I hope I don’t miss the little miracles and quiet moments when God shows up." - David Phelps
