100 Words: April 9, 2010

A funny thing happens when one’s dream dies…suddenly there is room for the previously unimagined. A whole world of possibilities becomes visible.

You don’t get the dream job you’ve been working so hard for, perhaps you’ve gotten the training needed to help an orphanage in Africa instead. Maybe you won’t have the ideal “American Dream” house and childhood you hoped to give your children. Perhaps you’ll give them the greater gifts of compassion, gratitude, faith, and empathy…things that aren’t necessarily attainable within the confines of selfish living.

The truth is, the dream must die, otherwise how can we see the dreams of God when our own dreams stand in the way?

    this is a brilliant thought-provoking post…all dreams die eventually which leaves room for another to take it’s place. ♥

    It is thought provoking and fits right in with some things I’ve been struggling with. I think I was meant to find my way here today! Thank you.
