The Beauty of a Dream

God is faithful, and He showed me that again this morning.  Joshua, my oldest son, is going to James Madison University this morning, and I had been feeling rather blue about him not being around as much.  Yes, I am so proud of him; yes, I am excited for him, and yes, I also know that we will still see him a lot.  Yet, I found myself sitting around looking at pictures like this one…and you know the end result of that.  :\

Joshua, age 7, on a ramble in Ireland.

Yesterday, I wrote this quote on J’s facebook wall:

“God gives us dreams a size too big so that we can grow in them.” – Anonymous

This morning, on my daily inspirational flip calendar, there was this:

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”  – Eleanor Roosevelt

Coincidence or God’s reassurance & plans for Joshua?  You know what I think.   Then I went outside to walk my sweet dog, and there were angel rays..those beautiful sun beams that shine through the lifting fog and kiss the ground.  And God knows that I love them.  It was like He was speaking very loudly to me of His love and care for me and our whole family.  So, to make a very long story shorter, I feel better…Joshua has exciting plans ahead, dreams to dream, and a purpose from God to fulfill.  And I get to watch it unfold.  How cool is that?  🙂  Slainte, Lisa

  1. What an amazingly uplifting post! God touches our lives with some “magnificent God moments,” and that is just what he did for you today! We’ll all hopefully sit back and watch Joshua’s dreams become a beautiful reality.

  2. Sounds like what I refer to as, “A love note from God slipped under the door of your life”. Heard that from a friend one time and whenever I see the hand of God moving in my life as in the way He moved in affirmation in yours, I thank Him for His kiss to me that day.

    • I love that phrase “God’s love note under the door of your life.” I am going to try to remember that. 🙂 Thanks for writing!
