A Kernel of a Dream

We all have hopes and dreams buried deep within our hearts. Years ago I had the hope and desire to have children. After two years of trying to get pregnant, experiencing a miscarriage, I finally was pregnant with our first son. A few years later our second son arrived on the scene.

As I think back over my 42 years of life, I realize that I have had many dreams. Some were just a child's fantasy, others have rooted deep into my heart and still are awaiting fruition. Often times there are things that come along that try to discourage or dissuade me from those kernels of hope. I have learned that if my dreams are ones that come from the Lord, they remain as long as I am seeking His will.

What hopes and dreams do you have?

Some have come about, some haven't. Some are on standby. I'd love to travel and speak more often, but that might wait until my munchkins are taller.

Found you through Natalie...great blog.

I'm living my dream, but I know there is more to come. I think I'd like to speak some too, but for now, I'm good just doing what I'm doing.

Keep dreaming!
