40 Day Challenge, Day 6: Dreaming

Lighthouse

Begin with the Prayer of Abandonment.

Today’s theme is “dreaming.”

Our dreams can teach us many things: What we wish and what we fear. What we hope and what we dread. What we need and what we regret.

Last year when my husband and I were going through a particularly trying time with the kids, sometimes we would escape the challenges of the day by imagining where we might be in a year, in five years. Deliberately turning our minds from the potential landmines before us, we would dream together of what life would be like, where we would go and what we would do. Happily, these positive thoughts buoyed us up and got us over those rough patches. These small bits of happiness were a mercy, keeping us in hope.

When was the last time you dreamed with your sweetheart? Why not find a quiet bit of time today, and try it?
