In my dreams...

I was really bummed yesterday.... I had sooooooo wanted to make it to Travis Cottrell's CD taping in Woodstock, GA yesterday, but in the end, I just couldn't go. So I had a small pity party, knowing I was missing out on getting to see the siestas, join in on a great worship session, and see Travis and Siesta Mama Beth. Gloom. Disappointment. Sadness. Stifled sobs. Waaaaaaaaahhh. But by bedtime, I was over it, no problem, or so I thought.

Y'all, I had the strangest, most vivid dream last night. Now you have to know that I am not one of those people who has exciting dreams, rivaling the plot line of a bestselling thriller novel. My hubby does, but not me. He dreams about spy chases in Madrid and epic struggles with monsters from other worlds; I dream about mundane things like laundry, and cooking, and cats. And then I usually struggle to remember what I have been dreaming about after I wake up, which is probably not surprising given the snoringly boring subject matter of most of my dreams. So, all this to say that my dream last night surprised me. It was strange, I woke up in the middle, laughed at myself, went back to sleep, and dreamt some more of the same stuff, and I remembered it all when I woke up this morning. So here goes...

I dreamed that I spent a day with Beth Moore. Now, if I was going to plan a day to spend with Beth, I think I would pick some fun and exciting things to do, invite my best siesta friends, add in some good Mexican food, throw in a trip or two to a Starbucks for some coffee and ample girlfriend-talking time, and voila! ...a wonderful day. Doesn't it sound fabulous??? But in my dream there we were, Beth and I, along with some of my friends from high school. (FYI -I graduated from high school 25+ years ago and I haven't seen these people since). And we seemed to be spending the entire day in a large park, climbing up on play structures, trying to get a cell phone signal on some kind of weird cell phone. Although at one point in my dream we were out on a lake in a small row boat, and Beth and I were throwing donuts at the ducks while the others laughed. And then right before I woke up, we were all in a marching band for some kind of parade in the park, and I remember thinking "...Oh Beth is NOT going to like this because the band uniform hat will give her the worst case of helmet head and her hair will be ruined" and I felt terrible... And I clearly remember at one point in my dream, someone saying to me "Oh I am so looking forward to this day with Beth" and I replied "It's here!! We are doing the thing!", and Beth cracked up laughing because that is something she says. And to tell you the truth, I don't know if the whole cell phone-thing worked out or not...

Y'all, it was the strangest dream, and in my opinion, the stupidest way to spend a day. Sigh...

OK - gotta go and get my day started.

I would have loved to have gone to the taping too and I had a dream I remembered from last night too!

Ask the Lord what your dream means Adrienne, He may be trying to communicate to you through your dream. I know He does with me. I'm a visual learner and God speaks to different people in different ways. Just think of all the people He spoke to in dreams, visions or angelic visitations in the Bible: Abraham, Hagar, Jacob, Joseph, Pharoh, Moses, Gideon, Samson's parents, Samuel, Isaiah, Ezekiel - and this is only a few! God is still at work today! Praise His Name!

Blessings to you!

I am so sorry that we didn't get to go to the taping. Your dreams sound like a lot of mine. Very crazy. In many of mine, I am also trying to get a phone to work but can't.

Hopefully, we can go one day and meet with Mama Siesta. Maybe one day soon we can get together with our siesta Sarah or just meet by ourselves.

Hi Adrienne,

Your dream was funny! I have strange dreams too.

I didn't get to go to the taping either. But I did accompany Leah (from The Point) to her speaking engagement on Amelia Island.

Someday I hope I will be able to see some of the siestas. I would love to see those of you that are close. You are only about and hour and a half from me. Maybe
