for friday.




Today I'm dreaming about wearing rainboots
and feeding chickens with my girls
Today I'm dreaming of my children running around on my own farm
Today I'm dreaming of a cozy corner with a rocking chair
and lots of sunlight streaming through the window
Today I'm dreaming of an old house with
big wooden planks on the floor
Today I'm dreaming of skirts and flip flops
Today I'm dreaming of my husband being home
and working from the house
Today I'm dreaming of all my children growing up and serving God
Today I'm dreaming of owning a horse again
and a pony for my children
Today I'm dreaming of sitting outside on old tree stumps around a fire
Today I'm dreaming of how beautiful heaven will be
Today I'm dreaming of God's gracious love
Today I'm dreaming how much He cares for all of us that
He gave His Son on the cross
Today I'm dreaming that in heaven there will be no more death
Today I'm dreaming of the day I can just let my Dad go
Today I'm dreaming of how my whole family will
dwell in the house of the Lord
one day forever...together.

I know what you mean about letting your dad go.
I finally came to terms with the death of my husband and son when I realized we were not created to die; that death is our enemy.
And so, we miss them until we see them again, we creatures of eternity.
