The Inspiration of Dreams
~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994
Early morning, when the air is crisp and cool and the veil of dreams light and airy, is certainly one of the greatest sources of inspiration for me. God's promises are new, and a niggle of dream-sleep tugs at my heartstrings. Often, remnants of a hidden thought blossom into a song of the soul, ripe for sharing. It is then that writers such as myself feel the urge to unleash what has been held so close to our hearts.
I love to rise before the rest of the world stretches from slumber, brew a pot of coffee and sip steaming java as the sun dances over the horizon. Often, I sit on my back porch and consider what angels have spoken while I dreamed, plotting in my head as my brain comes to full alertness. As I listen to the sounds and scents that swirl around, my creativity is fueled and my spirit is renewed by the splendor that God has placed before me. All is quiet and still...new and ripe with promise. The day is a clean page just waiting for a scene to be written.
In this respect, our lives are like books, each day a fresh, clean page, every season a new chapter. Second chances abound by God's everpresent grace. I stand in awe of His love for me and for all of creation. I have learned through experience to slow down, to listen...to savor. Nothing is gained by rushing, and treasures are amassed only by virtue of patience.
Have angels spoken to you? Have you found mercy in the awesomeness of a new morning...in the glory of a sunrise? Share your God-given page, and together we can write a novel of inspiration, filled with God's unbridled grace.
