Dreams....






Yesterday I was out looking for a barstool type chair for the new place I moved into a few months ago. It has a high bar like counter between the kitchen and living room. I went from place to place, finally found myself checking out the Goodwill store here in town. As I was looking around I found myself accidently stepping on something laying on the floor, felt like a a flat piece of wood. I started to take my foot off of it and above my foot saw the word "Dreams". I looked down and saw it was a wood plaque with a painting of the ocean on it and some words to the left of the picture. I picked it up and read what it said. Well, as you see it above you may understand why I knew I was meant to have this plaque...besides it only cost one dollar! I mean I'm always the type person to manage to find all kinds of bargains and deals but this was a "very special deal"!..:o). It seems at times in life that there are no coincidences, that just maybe everything happens for a reason. Sometimes we understand or see this right away....other times it dawns on us down the road a bit later....and we say "ah ha"!...Life is interesting that way isn't it? Keep on "believing in your Dreams"....you might just be surprised...

P.S. Sorry the words are a bit blurry but scanning a wooden plaque isn't the easiest thing to do!..ha ha..Just click on the pic and hopefully you will be able to read the words then. By the way I never found a barstool but think I found something better!

GOOD AFTERNOON DEAR RHI....I LOVED THIS POST.. WOW.. AND YES YOUR DREAMS WILL COME TRUE.. I KNOW YOUR COMING TO LOPEZ I KNOW.. AND YOU WILL LOVE IT AND SO I PLAN TO HAVE A PLACE FOR YOU TO STAY WHEN YOU VISIT.. I'M ORDERING A TEE-PEE FOR MY ADVENTUREST GUESTS AND HOPE TO BUILD THE HOYTIE TOYTIE HOUSE GOD WILLING FOR MY PAMPERED VISITORS.. MY IDEA OF CAMPING IS WHEN ROOM SERVICE IS LATE..ANYWAY I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS 17 OUT AT A CLUB.. I ALWAYS LOOKED OLDER AND I WAS SO DRUNK I FELL OVER TO ONE SIDE AND TOUCHED THE FLOOR...MY HAD LAID ON SOMETHING THAT WAS IN THE PALM OF MY HAND ..I NEVER GOT THAT DRUNK AND I HAD A CHOICE ON WEDS. NIGHT TO GO CLUBBING OR BIBLE STUDY.. THAT NIGHT I MADE THEWRONG CHOICE AND WHEN I LIFTED THE OBJECT INTO VIEW IT WAS A CRUSIFIX SP. JESUS ON THE CROSS AND IT WAS AS IF JESUS SAID TO ME NOT IN WORDS.. I LOVE YOU ANNE AND I'M WITH YOU ALWAYS EVEN NOW..WELL THAT WAS SOBERING AND AWAKENING..I TOOK IT HOME AND NEVER FORGOT IT.. IT WAS AN AWESOME HAPPENING THOUGH I'M NON DENOMINATIONAL. WELL ANYWAY I HAVE TO THINK OF THE SONG FROM 1976 AEROSMITH "DREAM ON" WORDS ARE SOMETHING LIKE:
"YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE..WHEN IN THE END COMES BACK TO YOU....SING WITH ME... SING FOR THE YEAR...SING FOR THE LAUGH... SING FOR THE TEAR...SING AWAY NOW JUST FOR TODAY.... MAYBE TOMARROW THE GOOD LORD WILL TAKE YOU AWAY....DREAM ON ...DREAM ON...DREAM ON....DREAM ON UNTIL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE!AMEN

Thank you Long iron. You have a great Canadian Thanksgiving!

Thank you Anne, for your thoughtful words and encouragement. Maybe it wasn't a wrong choice that night to go to the club. You "happened" upon that cross that night now didn't you?...hmmmm..life sure can be interesting can't it?

"Dream on"...
