She Sees Angels

Lately Abi has started laughing in her sleep. It's one of my favorite things in the world right now. She's not really laughing during waking hours yet and even her smiles are pretty rare, so I'm always amazed by the laugh-out-loud giggles that she has during naps! I wonder what she's dreaming about that's so funny. Her life experiences are relatively few at this point, and it seems that nothing she's seen in this world has been worthy of a laugh, so my thoughts easily drift toward the things "not of this world". I wonder, is she sitting at the feet of the Jesus, while he regales her with tales that delight her little heart? Or is she sitting in the High Court of the Lord, watching the angelic court jester perform his worship? Is she dreaming of heavenly things that make the things of this world pale in comparison?

I'm reminded of one of our favorite songs by Danny Oertli:

She Sees Angels

I've seen this before
So I turned out the light
And walked across the room
The wind played its song through the trees in the yard
The shadows were chased by the moon
I stood in the doorway and I let out a sigh
And watched the small little girl
who was there in the moonlight
Tossing her head in a whirl

And she sees angels dancing in the sky
She sees angels in the night

Do they whisper sweet words,
Do they sing her a song.
Do they light up her eyes with the stars
Do they touch her soft skin as she sleeps late at night
Does she even know who they are
Floating in air they perform their ballet
Lifting their praise to above
For sweet little girls bathed in heavenly light
Learning the ways of God's love.

And she sees angels dancing in the sky
She sees angels in the night
