Dream a Little Dream


Acts 2:17
In the last days, God says, "I will pour out my Spirit on all people.  Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams."

Gone to bed
Retired
He is dreaming
I am, too
But still awake
And wondering
If my deeds
Treasured dreams
A difference make

Amen

Dear friends, Thanksgiving week is upon us, and I will be taking a hiatus from posting until this time has been celebrated and enjoyed by all.  Danny and I are going down to my mother's to prepare a Thanksgiving feast for all the family, and I will be in touch with your blogs as is possible.  If I'm absent, please forgive!  I will be back on track when Advent comes upon us.  Until that time, may God continue to richly bless you all!
