10. “When you can’t dream hold onto to someone else’s dream, until you get one of your own..,” says spoken word poet Bettina Gold Wilkerson.
9. And why a dream is important, according to the late poet Langston Hughes:
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore–
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over–
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?
8. Dreams explode when we are not free. Free from ambition, controlling others, expectations, jealously, judgment, and selfishness.
7. When we are free: we serve with a joyful heart, see the miraculous, enjoy whatever comes, rejoice in good of another, pray with a pure heart, and irritation.
6. How: Act like you have the authority, but do not reach for the power.
5. Why: The best laid plans are the Lord’s plans.
4. When people are separated for too long, they are forgotten and replaced. (Sadly, we live in a disposal society.)
3.Love without romance is boring and lifeless; a man and a woman needs to hear more than “I Love You.”
1. Don’t get too busy standing on firm ground to fall on your knees before God.
