The alarm went off at 6:50 a.m., while tempted to hit the snooze, I decided to get myself up and out of bed to enjoy this beautiful day. The only reason I had to remain snuggled in was to find out how my dream ended. Have you experienced a morning like this? You are involved in a dream, full color, and you're just reaching the end...when the alarm BUZZ! BUZZ!...interrupts. That was today.
Within ten minutes, the dream has vanished. The exciting conclusion I awaited has disappeared. I don't even remember what I was dreaming about. All I can recall is the feeling of wanting to sleep just seven more minutes to see how it ended. As much as I'd like to say I know how the dream ended, I am much happier to have put my feet on the floor and got up.
With a hot cup of coffee in hand and a camera around my neck, I made my way to the deck. I'm so glad I did. With the sun streaming through the bare branches, the birds singing, and a light breeze to spread the fresh air...I was in paradise. While the dream might have ended well, I probably would have forgotten before the coffee finished brewing BUT the view, sound, and fresh air I absorbed are forever a memory in my brain. Rather than focus on the dream, I'm choosing to enjoy reality.
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
Dream or Reality...what will you choose?
