WHAT DREAMS MAY COME

article-0-0AD668E9000005DC-981_468x334                   Dream_420-420x0

                    Have you ever wondered why we dream?, What do dreams mean?,Why do we dream of people we hardly     know, but yet seem to see them in a dream. The one dreams that really boggles my mind is one that just doesn’t make any sense at all like, being in a place you never lived before,in a town u never seen,or seeing your ex wife there talking to you like all is fine, and your still married, then all of a sudden end up somewhere else with alot of people that you don’t even know..Maybe it’s just me, or my dreams. but if you ever had any of these types of dreams, then you know where I’m coming from. I truly believe that God has given us the gift to dream to keep or relive memories of lost loved ones, often I dream of my family or friends that have past on. I dream of them being around me, laughing hugging, enjoying a beer.

FAMILY PICS 009                  FAMILY PICS 017

              I have dreamed often of my dad,or brother David who has been gone for years now, and there they are smiling a t me. I am all grown up. my brother died when I was 16 and my father a few years back. anyways. I would see my brother hanging out, just the way he used to be, and I would go up to him and hug him, cry and didn’t care how he was there or why,just that I was so glad to see him, and he would look at me and tell me..”I am fine brother, just wanted to see how      your doing is all” then he was gone. I would wake with tears in my eyes and truly believe that God allowed me to see him.because he knew I needed that comfort or cry.I often dream of my daughters, they are grown now but I see them small when they were young, and we would have fun together. these are good dreams, dreams that I believe we need. 

Lucid dreams             Dreams

        Our mind never stops working, it’s like a video recording the days events and sticking them in a harddrive in your brain somewhere so it can show it to you when your asleep, but what happens is that all that gets turned around and your dreaming of things that happened that day, but yet somehow, it’s like your mind drifts off somewhere else, and there are people or people or places you haven’t seen in years, and there you are..don’t make any sense at all.

      for example: I once had a dream of a freind who I haven’t seen in over 25 years, there we are having a good time catching up with the old, then when I awake, I wonder, why I had that dream of that friend, well 3 days later I ran into him in Santa Barbara, and couldn’t believe it was him, he was older, as I was to him I’m sure, but It was weird how  he just popped up out of  know where, and there he was..I told him about the dream and we just were glad to see each other.

     I truly believe God uses dreams to speak to us while we sleep, our bodies are asleep, subconsciously we are asleep but our minds are awake, so God when he has a message to send to us, he plays it in video.He may be warning us about danger that is coming or of a friend or family member that may be in trouble, for what ever the reason this one of his ways of talking to us.

     So if you find yourself dreaming a dream that doesn’t make any sense, your not alone, and hopefully you will find yourself dreaming of good things like family and friends. I find a good dream makes one have a better tomorrow bad dreams,we all get them..just have to get by till the good one comes along.

NEVER SATISFIED

imagesHave you ever wondered why some of us are never satisfied with what we have. When it rains, we ask for summer. When summer heat is here, we pray for rain, or fall. I bet God scratches his head at times when we do this, and probalbly thinks how ungrateful we really are.
Last week I came down to visit some family whom I don’t live far from,about hour away, but still is hard at times to get down and see them when I want, and love to spend time with them, but
after few days pass by, I just am so ready to go back home, and get back to my life there. It’s not
that I am tired or annoyed with them, It’s just we are all set in our own ways, at home we have our
way of doing things,relaxing,cooking,cleaning,etc, and when we visit or stay with family or friends
as much as we enjoy the time with them, there comes that certain feeling in us and we say, ” just can’t wait to get back home,” and be able to relaxe on my own bed,watch my t.v, cook in my own
kitchen. It’s human nature, we are natually built that way, I guess.
The funny thing with that, is when we do get back home, in our groove, doing our thing, after
while, we are back doing that thing again, ” just can’t wait to get away for awhile, I need another
vacation.” and the cycle starts all over again…like I say We are funny people.
I have learned to be very appreciative of the times that I do spend with my family,especially,
my mother,I know of friends that no longer have their mother or father with them anymore,and they
let me know how much they miss them so, I am very blessed and fortunate to have both my parents..My blood father, is gone,but my stepfather is still with my mother, and when I see them we
share such great moments such , laugh,drink,cry,and other emotions that came to us daily as we
visited. and thru all that I am truly grateful for the memories,and wouldn’t trade those times for anything.
so next time you are visiting family, just remember there will come a time when those
times will be no more, we all are here for little while then we die, that is the cycle of life,but while
we are here, and for those of us who have our parents still, charish them, and enjoy each and
every moment, because they will never come again. Even though we are ready to go home after
such a great visit,it is so hard to say goodby to them and at that moment wish we could’ve stayed
just a little longer.

CHARISHED MEMORIES

Today as I was down, visiting family and friends,
My mind took me back, of things of yesteryear,
Remembering the good times, and bad times,again.
Laughing and crying, and thinking, so glad I am here.

I thank you so much Lord, to you I make a toast,
Giving me this opportunity, for those I charish most,
I have to count my blessings, each and every day,
Every time I close my eyes, As I start to pray.

Dads, are the ones, who fix things when they break,
Moms, are very special, they are our heart and soul,
Sisters are the ones, who help mom cook and bake,
While brothers are the ones, who says ” for goodness sakes.”

We Laugh and cry, as we remember family we have lost,
Making new memories with the family we have now,
Helping each other, in times of need, no matter the cost,
Never giving up on them, or throwing in the towel.

Smelling mama’s cooking, as we walk into the kitchen,
Slapping our hands, as we dip our fingers for a licken,
Dad outside, cleaning the yard around the house,
Our kids running all over, who love to scream and shout.

Taking pictures and videos of all our family and friends,
Cherishing the memories, hoping they would never end.
The sad part is when we kiss and say our goodby’s,
Holding mom the most, as she blesses us and cry’s.

These are the best times, we should truly cherish most,
Hoping that God would allow us to see each other again,
To God, family and friends to you I make a toast
These memories forever in my heart, until the very end.
