Dreams, In Our Jammies...

Dreams and Visions, that was the theme of our retreat weekend and our study of the book of Revelation. One of the highlights was a pajama party (picture 150 women dressed similarly and wearing crowns!) featuring a PJ fashion show that culminated with fruit, cake and pretzels arranged to be dipped in a flowing chocolate fountain! Here I am with my daughter posing for a quick snapshot before the festivities began. It was an amazing time away together spent in Bible study as well as fun, food and fellowship. On Sunday morning we arrived for worship to find a small book placed at our seats about dreams (and symbols) for us to take home. I randomly opened my book to the following page:

How about that? The presiding Pastor for the weekend talked to us quite a bit about dreams; our feelings in response to our own dreams and the importance of dreaming big KINGDOM DREAMS, plus giving voice to them so that they may be realized. Well, if I were dreaming of quilts my big dream would be that they were all finished-- quilted and bound, now that would be heaven for sure. Oh yeah, I forgot, these are dreams we're talking about... not fairy tales!
Life is Good!

What a wonderful photo of the two of you! :-) It's great to have time with our children, just one on one, even when they're grown. I know how special this weekend must have been for both of you. Hugs!
