The Painting: This is a small one, a perfect stocking stuffer. Email me if you are interested.
The Thought: I had one of THOSE dreams last night..the kind where you are falling and you wake suddenly. It was only about two hours into my sleep cycle and very unusual for me to dream things like that.
I googled it on the internet and was surprised by some of what I read and some I was not surprised by. It said it was pretty common to have dreams like this when your life is undergoing changes and there is much outside stress you cannot control. I remember writing about that last week, and how a friend from PA emailed me some thoughts that made me adjust my life. The google info also said this was common for people to dream of falling if they were fighting for control with God. Interesting. The way it came down in the dream I think it was a prime reminder in my dream that He is in total control as I felt Him comfort me and surround me with a soft blueness as I was falling....I was in a car with my younger brother and my mother.
I have never put credence into dreams, not once in my life...but this one was so vivid and I am using it as a reminder that I do not have control over things in my life. Have you had falling dreams lately? God is there to catch you on the way down.
“When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born. "In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written: " 'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.”Matthew 2:4-6
