Dreams are like morning dew, slowly dissipating in the light of day. Hour by hour, minute by minute, reality sneaks in, seeking to steal the fire, hope and the tentative fragments that comprise them. Rarely, do dreams magically appear. They must be nurtured, tended, and cared for. Dreams require a lot of work and tremendous sacrifice.
As a child, I dreamed of living on a farm in a small town. I pictured rocking on the front porch, sipping tea and watching the sun set over the wheat fields. I didn’t understand the hard work and skills needed to run a farm – or that the work began before sunrise. However, as I grew, so did my dreams. Not because I gave up on them, but because I saw life differently. Some of my life long dreams have been captured. Others are still waiting to be pursued.
I used to dream on top of my swing set or inside the highest tree I could find. The taller I was, the closer I felt to heaven. I told God all about my dreams. He didn’t think they were silly or stupid. In fact, he put those dreams in my heart.
This weekend at CCWC, after I was commissioned and anointed, the Lord gave me a word: "Dream come true." I can't wait to see what God does next! So much is stirring in my spirit.
What about you? Are you afraid to give God your dreams? Don't be. He is a wonderful dream keeper who is able and willing to make them happen. Just like He is doing for me.
1. My Doc would not renew prescription over the phone so spent an hour of time at her office.
2. Walgreens did not receive faxed prescription so I had to return later.
3. Toilet clogged and overflowed. My DH rescued me there.
4. Dropped an entire cooler full of bottled water – a mess
5. Fan fell apart. It was old.
6. “Better than Lather” spilled all over my travel bag. Soooo much lather I finally ended up throwing it in the wash.
7. Still do not have reservations. Phone tag with the reservationist.
8. Ink ran out while printing one- sheets.
9. No appointments set up with editors/agents.
I can’t wait to see what God is going to do. Obviously, the enemy is going his best to sabotage me, but he is not going to win.
I imagine those who are going to CCWC are experiencing all sorts of distractions. Please keep us in your prayers this week. God has something awesome cooking!

How does Twitter save time?
1. I send out one tweet (via text message from my phone) and all my followers get it at the same time. This saves me from texting each person individually. When my dear, sweet, grand baby was born, I twittered her progress all night long. That’s when I learned how invaluable Twitter is.
2. I’ve set my tweets to automatically update my Facebook profile so I don’t have to check in with FB each day. Now I check it weekly or just when I want to check friends’ updates.
3. I stay in touch with my network and blog less frequently so I have more time.
Other benefits of Twitter:
Well, did I convince you to try it? Look me up at boldandfree and send me a tweet. I’d love to Tweet with you!
I left Fools Town because the people there are crazy.
