Friday Five: Dream a Little Dream

RevGal Sophia gives us this Friday Five:

1. Do you tend to daydream?
*Sigh* I do. Especially during "fuzzy time," that brief period after the alarm goes off, and before I actually get out of bed.

2. Do you usually remember your night dreams? Do you find them symbolic and meaningful or just quirky?
Not always, but I have for the last couple of months, and they've been strange.

3. Have you ever had a life changing dream which you'll never forget?
Yep. My freshman year of college I had one incredibly vivid dream. I'd gotten submerged in trying to help someone who was really struggling, and the dream offered a lot of perspective.

4. Share a long term dream for one or more aspects of your life and work.
Peace. That's my long-term dream. No, not in a canned-Miss-America-answer sort of way. I don't know where I'm going vocationally, and there are ways I don't know where I'm going personally, either. So as I just put one foot slowly in front of the other, I'm hoping to rest in God's peace and guidance.

5. Share a dream for 2010....How can we support you in prayer on both the short and long term dreams?
What a beautiful question. I think my dream for 2010 is to feel free to dream about vocation again. I'd love prayer for that.

Bonus: a poem, song, artwork, etc. that deals with dreams in general or one of your dreams.
I've always loved this song, which wonders about baby dreams.


  1. What a sweet song. You are on my list of the "prayed-fors." Dream away.

  2. oh, dreams for vocation. yes. prayers for you...

  3. love the song!

    Prayers that you will find the freedom you long for.

  4. Yep. Praying for you.

  5. Vocation prayers for sure, my dear.

  6. Vocational journeys somehow seem the most frustrating and rewarding as we find ourselves revealed vis a vis what the world has to offer at any point in time. May your dreams lead you to peace, freedom and fulfillment.

  7. i love that song! wonderful!

    prayers for your peace.

  8. Hope 2010 is a good year for you...

  9. well who doesn't like songs from bare naked ladies? i hope you find the peace you yearn for...

  10. I love your dream for dreams of vocation. That's God nudging you. Wishing you peace.


"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
-Saint Molly Ivins
