Texas or Bust or The Soli Sisters

Since its beginning, I have happily been a part of The Soli Deo Gloria Sisterhood. I call them The Soli Sisters ... a group of lovely, honest, funny bloggers who love life and Jesus.

This weekend, I am flying to Texas to meet several of them at a retreat. Wonderful friends that I love, but have never met in person. I can hardly wait.

I have a sister.in.law and niece in Texas, who are joining me. Wish y'all could come, too.

Dreams (the kind you have while sleeping)


Dave always laughs when I tell him about my dreams, because I have some strange ones. Do you pay attention to your dreams? 

For me, I have noticed a pattern of dreams that show up if I am stressed. I have three recurring dreams and the further down the list it goes, the more stressed I am. 

     *my college dream ~ it is half way through a college year or near the end of the semester. I have forgotten where my classrooms are located. I have forgotten to attend class or do any homework. And ... it is time to take a test. (poor me)

     *my school teacher dream ~ it is the first day of class. I have forgotten to fix up my classroom. I have forgotten to make lesson plans. And ... the students and parents are arriving. (poor me)

     *my communist dream ~ in this dream someone is always hunting me down. It has some variations but it is always scary. (poor me)

And now some encouragement for you as you sleep tonight ... 

     *"I lay down and slept, I awoke again for the Lord sustained me." (Psalm 3:5)

     *"In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety." (Psalm 4:8)

Years ago, I had a friend calligraphy these two verses for my bedroom wall. Dave was traveling a lot and I was home alone with two babies. So much comfort. 

How about you? Do you have any recurring dreams?

ps. If you are a therapist ... please do not read this post. :)
