Sometimes I Call It Dreaming

(You can receive this Blog via email by entering your address on the right.)

While watching a Military History Channel program (yes, I'm a bit of a junkie) on the British Secret Intelligence Service, a description of the type of personnel recruited was given. One trait that was focused upon was that young men (and women) were preferred because of their daring and willingness to take risks.
This caught my attention as a creative. It seems to me that most dreamers are young. Most dreamers are full of hope, optimism, and idealism. They are daring. They take risks.

As people age, they tend to cease dreaming. Some become complacent. Some become discouraged. Some become cold and bitter.

I am finding that at my age, I could easily fall into a pattern of accepting the status quo, and shuffling along with the rest of humanity.

But I work hard not to fall into that trap. I don't want to become a non-dreamer and a non-visionary. I still expect every seed to grow into a flower. I still anticipate the end of a rainstorm and the shining of the sun.

I still believe that every melody line that comes from my heart will capture the hearts of others. I still believe that every person I pray for will be touched by God.

I like to believe that God will take my dreams and fuel them with His power so that they become a reality: A melody conceived that touches the soul, a page written that stimulates the mind, a word spoken that encourages the heart.

I have called it hope. I have called it faith. I have called it vision. Sometimes I call it dreaming.
