Recently, it seemed many were writing about 'Dreams'.
One really jumped out; basically they were challenging the thought (I believe fact) dreams are every day; what we are experiencing today, which is our family, friends, experiences,work, ministry and prayer times.
Then, when I turned 12 yrs. old at church camp the Lord called me into the Mission Field. When I turned 14 yrs. old, the Lord gave me a heart for India; and was blessed with the opportunity of going there as well.
When I married, I was always restless (does this sound familiar to someone); longing to achieve my 'DREAMS'- and feeling like the biggest failure because I never did.
Then God makes this 'wake-up-call' using life shooting by like a falling star; telling me; "Daneille, LOOK, look at your life you have dedicated to Me!"
But, still...that is not the knock on the head, or the wake up call that truly spoke deeply to me. It was the fact that because of the life we have lived; with God's grace, we have happy, God loving children.
You see, no matter what I could do and maybe one day will acquire or do in my life; this means more to me than ANYTHING ELSE (even a so called dream).

I may not have much in the eyes of this world or even in the eyes of the 'American' Christian Church [i.e. research the book Radical by D. Platt]; but God has enriched my life with a godly husband who is a true humble servant. He never boasts on his special skills, or his knowledge. I have watched him when other pastors come along in a braggadocios tone, telling him all they know and how he needs to do this or that. Yet, this wise man just quietly nods his head. That man has grace!
So, yea; I guess I am living the dream. Note, The Dream.....My Dream is HIS DREAM!
NOTE THIS: In God's Word about dreams there were for revelations and directions. For His Glory and to bring many to Him.
