Monday

I woke up from a weird dream. Philip and I were at an airport in a different country. He had to hurry and catch a flight, would barely make it to get to the gate in time. He left me to run ahead and before I even expected it, the plane was backing away from the terminal to fly away. I couldn't believe Philip made it in time and started to walk around to the gate to see if he was still there, but couldn't find him. I did find a large grouping of our friends and they and many children were all piling around a group of picnic tables to eat, so I joined them.

I woke up and heard spring birds singing in the forsythia bush outside my window. A different breeze blew. Not the steam engine wind that howls and destroys trees and barns, but a gentle breeze. Even before 6:30 in the morning, the daylight greeted me instead of the dark of winter.

I feel sad. Heavy. Weary and in pain.

But I hope.

It was beautiful today. In this crazy world when we look close enough we can find beautiful. Almost like a present from God. Sometimes it's just being quiet - like the spring birds. You are still in our prayers.

What a perfect, and perfectly understandable dream! The mind makes sense of events in the most wonderful ways. Treasure those dreams, because they will help you heal.

Aren't they "postcards from the subconscious?"
