Dream Keeper

Yesterday I had the opportunity to do something I don’t do anymore… Gas prices and time keep me from this activity. 

love, I get so lost sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place You are (Peter Gabriel, “In Your Eyes”).
I was ahead of schedule for attending Walker’s Christmas party at school.  I indulged in the drive… I took the extra ten minutes and while driving I was reminded of a dream I had.  When I got to thinking about this I became to experience some great feelings of hope.  This reminder got me to thinking about Joseph… and all of the years, situations, and circumstances in his life before the dream he had became reality.

Joseph had a dream. When he told it to his brothers, they hated him even more. He said, “Listen to this dream I had. We were all out in the field gathering bundles of wheat. All of a sudden my bundle stood straight up and your bundles circled around it and bowed down to mine.”

His brothers said, “So! You’re going to rule us? You’re going to boss us around?” And they hated him more than ever because of his dreams and the way he talked.

He had another dream and told this one also to his brothers: “I dreamed another dream—the sun and moon and eleven stars bowed down to me!”  (Genesis 37:5-9, The Message).

God – He is the Dream Keeper.

  1. I sense a little bit of sarcasm… I guess you want a new song. I’m not sure how many CD’s I have… there’s a bunch.

    I have put a new CD in the Jeep today… U2’s Unforgettable Fire. Stayed tuned.
