"I can't help flying up on the wings of anticipation.
It's as glorious as soaring through a sunset... almost pays for the thud." 
|| anne of green gables

"You are never to old to set another goal or to dream a new dream..."
|| cs lewis

1. : a series of thoughts, images, or emotions occurring during sleep —
2. : an experience of waking life having the characteristics of a dream:
3. : something notable for its beauty, excellence, or enjoyable quality
4. : a strongly desired goal or purpose

"...and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true."

"I've been dreaming of this moment for 18 years.
What if it's not what I thought it would be?"
"It will be."
"And what if it is?  What do I do then?"
"Well, that's the good part I guess.  You get to go find a new dream."

I've been doing alot of dreaming this year.  The last 12 months of my life (both in relation to my business and personal life) have held alot of surprises, upsets, and alot of bends in the road.  Some old dreams have been taken away, and replaced with new dreams.  Other dreams have just been reshaped a little.  There've been questions, and fears, heartache and so much joy, and there's been wonder.  Wonder at my God and the fact that though I have no clue what He is doing most of the time, "I know what'er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well".

Dreaming can be a risky thing, except for when you're allowing your Maker, and the Lover of your soul to shape and mold those dreams for you. . .and then it's a utterly terrifyingly fantastic thing :)

"He has put a new song in my mouth--
. . . and I will trust in the Lord."
|| psalm 40:3

Much Love.

  3. He does indeed do all things well. As we throw our dreams to Him, even if it ends up being entirely different than we planned, it shall be far more wonderful than we could ever imagine. Sometimes its painful and sometimes its joyous...but its always *perfect*.

    I can totally relate with that crazy/scary/exciting feeling of letting Christ take hold of your future and not knowing what He is going to do with it!
