Thoughts to ponder

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.
