Scandal? Oh, Nightmare!

Some mornings you are just glad to wake up. I'm not talking about health; I'm talking about dreams.

You know the kind of dream I'm talking about...those nightmares, those long, all-night dreams where one catastrophe follows another.

Well, last night I dreamt that I had slandered two close friends on this blog. In the dream I didn't know they even READ my blog. But someone brought it to their attention. In the dream I had written this awful, scandalous thing about my friends.

I have no idea where that dream came from for these friends have never been involved in such a scandal. And in the dream one of the two called me to accountability. The pain was terrible! I can't tell you how awful that made me feel. And I couldn't repair the damage...once the words were out there on the net, they were there, and could not be taken back.

I was very, very glad to wake up this morning and find that it was only a dream.

I can eat my oatmeal and drink my coffee with a great sigh of relief!

And I hope that you, too, have a good beginning to a new day.

I actually don't think that you could say a mean thing about anyone, let alone a outright lie. That's what I think, anyway.

Oh I so understand...I generally have the most toxic dreams, and sometimes am tired in the morning from the exhaustion.

Bet you WERE glad to wake up. Maddening, isn't it? Or maybe, we could make tons of money by publishing books with our dreams as the plot line. Whaddayathink? ;)

What a good reminder to release words of life and grace when we speak and write ...

I dream vividly most nights and it's often that I'm relieved to wake up and find it was all just a dream.

Nightmares make me really appreciate mornings, even rainy ones on Mondays! :)
