I had a dream of blue skies…

Last night I dreamed that I was driving near our house. The sky was dark; there were heavy, black clouds that swirled over head and visibility was limited.  This darkness felt very pressing and consuming.

So I pulled over to call Ben. As I sat in the parking lot of the apple orchard near our house, I watched a ray of sunlight begin to appear on my hands and steering wheel. I looked up… the ominous clouds were floating off into the sky like a blanket being lifted. The sun and perfect blue skies came out.



I didn’t think much of my dream as I woke up.  Then, as I logged onto the computer for my daily devotional (it’s emailed to me via Proverbs 31), I read this excerpt by Lysa TerKeurst:


I watched the grey clouds envelop us.

And then the grey broke.

Suddenly, we rose above the clouds and the sun was shining brightly. The sky was fabulously clear.

The clouds were just a temporary covering. They didn’t stop the sun from shining. They just prevented my eyes from seeing the sun.


I took this photo only a couple miles from the location of my dream. It was taken this past summer.

Psalm 34:17-18, “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”


Whatever you are dealing with today, just remember that there is goodness beyond it.  As my devotional pointed out, there are many people who would trade my worst day for their best day.  We should all remember that.  🙂

Have a great day, everyone.  Please remember all you have to be thankful for.
