It’s a nice cool breezy morning, likely to rain later I would guess. I went for a walk this morning and really enjoyed it: it’s been over a week since I went walking. My favorite time to walk is early morning while it is still dark; so today was perfect ! It is a paradoxical though because I am also slow to get moving in the mornings and will usually while-a-way the time drinking coffee and looking at the web. I’m glad I went walking, and I’m grateful to God for making such a nice day and enabling me to walk in it.
Dreams have a long history both as a subject of conjecture and as a source of inspiration. Throughout their history, people have sought meaning in dreams or divination through dreams. They have been described physiologically as a response to neural processes during sleep, psychologically as reflections of the subconscious, and spiritually as messages from God or predictions of the future. Many cultures practiced dream incubation, with the intention of cultivating dreams that were prophetic or contained messages from the divine.
I would assume that I dream every night but usually nothing to remember in the morning. It’s always interesting to speculate on the meanings or significance of a dream. Last night I had a strange dream. I dreamt that Sweetous and I were both recalled to active duty. We were together in Iraq but did not see each other very often. Then the dream shifted or else a new dream later on; I had been recalled to active duty and was stationed in Germany. Sweetous was not present in this dream. I was being shown my new quarters; a large room in a very old building with two room mates. The first “roomie” was a white guy and he was very unfriendly, the other person was a black female who was very friendly and helped me get settled in. Then the dream abruptly ended and it was nearly time to get up.
Usually I don’t recall my dreams, but this one I did. It’s a strange one.
