dreamer in Dreamer
I tend to think I have big dreams. Some have said ‘unrealistic’. Which, I can agree with in part. But I’ve always thought that God is a bigger dreamer than me so why not ‘go big and go home.’ Now, it’s the follow-through to accomplish those dreams where I tend to come up short.
I have theories and ideas. For example, just today I was thinking of how great it would be to purchase a home, fix one side of it up for me and the other as a little Bed and Breakfast, then I could stay home, write, take care the yard and the garden, have people over all the time, meet new and interesting non-Americans (hopefully) and enjoy life.
This isn’t really a pipe dream, it could happen. I just have no idea of how to actually get it done in the drudgery of a 9-5 that pays my bills, but barely. There are some realistic items that need to happen before this could be accomplished. So I get stuck and I stop. The dreamer in me comes back to reality until I’m fighting in traffic, day-dreaming again.
That’s why I find it so incredibly fascinated that the true Dreamer, created so much goodness! He thought of everything and executed it! He thought up mountains and trees and oceans and evaporation and rain and photosynthesis. He dreamt of our bodies and every little thing we would need in order to breathe and run and hear.
Before the foundations of the world the eternal Dreamer put into his mind and then spoke. And his dreams became true. You are this true dream of his. dreamer in Dreamer.
