We are all expressions of God’s Love – each existing only as a silent dream, that when whispered from His Heavenly lips came to life.
We are all wounded and broken in some way by this fallen and fragmented world, yet still beautiful as the very act of living expresses His Great and Infinite Love. Welcome all who come to you gently knowing that this sweet, precious, and broken being is an expression of His Love and as you send them forth – send them floating down the river of prayers flowing from your heart, easing their pain and yours for a moment or maybe a lifetime.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy dwelling places of the Most High.
This morning I woke up and remembered that it was our anniversary! As I gazed at my sleeping love, he woke up, gave me a smile and then for a moment he became lost as he gazed into space.
I didn’t want to interrupt his waking moment, but I thought to myself as he became lost in thought… only God knows where he is right now.
In that moment, with that thought, I wanted to melt into our one true Love so that my husband and I could be lost together in His infinite ocean of love.
By losing ourselves or melting into Him we are not lost, but instead find His buried treasure of knowing each other even more deeply. This hidden treasure is wonderful, but even it falls short of a deeper secret waiting for us.
I long to long to lose myself for Him alone.
I watched Joel Osteen on Sunday morning. I loved his reminder to keep your vision in front of you and dream big!
While I was running yesterday I was thinking through some of my dreams and wondering if I had been limiting myself by not dreaming big enough. I then prayed for a moment for God keep my heart open to the seeds of a big dream he would like to plant. By the end of my run, I was thinking about someone who has been on my mind a lot in the last few months.
Then for a moment I looked up, and instead of seeing an image in the clouds I saw an image in the blue sky which was formed by the surrounding clouds. It looked like a finger pointing in the direction that I was running. It reminded me of the optical illusion pictures you have to stare at for a while in order to see the hidden/other picture.
It might not seem big, but maybe sending prayers and love through time and space to this person is a big dream. Maybe I am going in the right direction.
I guess I can’t know for certain, but I am going to keep looking beyond the clouds and searching the blue sky above for the slightly hidden, bigger picture!
It is Our Best Life!
DREAM it, say it, live it, believe it, and it will be!
Today I have been thinking about our sweet Jesus and all of the pain and suffering He will go through for me, for you, for all of us. I am so sad.
I keep thinking of Simon the Cyrene helping Him to carry His cross and Veronica leaning in to wipe His face. I want others to be there for Him, for our sweet Jesus, during His pain, during His agony. I have so many friends who love Him so much.
I want to a dream a little dream today. I want to dream that my sweet friends are there with Jesus. I want to imagine all of you quietly standing up and taking up His cross so that Simon’s hands are free to carry our Lord. I want to imagine you sprinkled through the crowd and quietly leaning in as He passes to wipe His face, kiss His wounds, and gently care for Him.
We cannot change what happened, it had to happen, the scriptures had to be fulfilled. Maybe we can dream a little dream to ease His pain, ease His suffering, and send Him our timeless love.
Thank you my friends for helping me to find our sweet Jesus. Please love Him today, please care for Him today, and I pray with all of my heart that you have the honor of being with Him today in our dreams.
