I am a dreamer. Always have been, always will be. When I was a kid, I used to fantasize about running away. Not because I had an awful home life. I didn't. But simply for the adventure of it. I had it all planned out: I would go south, to my aunt and uncle in Medicine Hat. Because that would be easier than going over the mountains to my grandparents. I planned what I would pack, the route I would take...everything. And then happily went back in the house to ask mom for a pink popsicle.
When I was a teenager, I'd dream about my future. I alternated between dreaming about being a stay at home mom, and about moving out, having an apartment a career. And of course I was always dreaming about what my life would be like when I was a famous novelist.
Now, I am living my stay-at-home mom dream, and my career and writing dreams are still there, simmering. We had a speaker at our church on Sunday. He said,
"When God gives a dream, it won't die." (Bill Prankard)And my friend sent me this verse this morning: (Matthew 11:7-8)
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.These days, I'm dreaming about peace, quiet country, thickly-starred night skies, and wide-open windows. I'm still trying to sort out what my real God-given dreams are, and what are just idle escapism. But I just love the new t-shirts that Layla of The Lettered Cottage is selling.
"Don't quit your day dream"What are your dreams?
