(from Verse and Voice today)
Show me a dreamer and I’ll show you one of God’s
heartbeats for the human race
Lately, with too much stuff coming into my inbox, the verse and voice seems to get the delete button, without much of a second look or thought. Not today.
"Where you been Swandive?" you ask yourself.
"Dreaming," I would reply.
"What cha' dreaming about?" you ask.
Well, all sorts of stuff. Like about November 5th, you know, the day the ads and debates and politic'ing goes away. I have been dreaming about what it would be like to be rid of my anxieties and fears. I have been dreaming about what meeting all sorts of new people lately is about. I have been dreaming about the upcoming wintertime, and the fires in the fireplace, and the nights looking up at the stars with my beloved from the hot tub.
I have been dreaming about my new "job", and where it might lead me/us. (New job but also have not left my existing one, because, well, much longer story there. But I still am at regular 9-5 m-f gig.) I've been dreaming about winning the lottery.
I have been dreaming about my place in Gods world, exactly created as I am: a freakishly passionate gal, with a heart big enough to warm a 12×12 room (at least) but riddled with fear and insecurity and trying not to show that side of me, and just put the energy out there that I am, IN FACT, all that. Its very exhausting, being me.
The quote today reminds me, that God loves me, a dreamer, where and how I am today, because or inspite of exactly who I am. And that, my friends, is a good thing.
