My “Impossible” Dreams

My hubby often tells me his life has never been dull with me around! I think that may have something to do with my tendency to “dream something up”.
I was thinking about that last week, about some dreams that proved to be impossible, and others not
.Many years ago I subscribed to a women’s magazine which had a very appealing ad for Glorieta Baptist Camp in New Mexico. I thought it would be so lovely if our family could take a trip to attend . Alas, it never happened…after all, we were about 2000 miles away!
As we drove down to Arizona from our home in Canada a couple weeks ago, we happened to pass by Glorieta, and I stopped to take a photo, even though the center is closed for the winter…just to say that I finally got there!

Another “impossible” dream turned out to be possible after all…again, many years ago, we heard a missionary from Trans World Radio, speaking about their work in Bonaire. He said they could certainly use volunteers. I really wanted to do that, but with two teenagers at home it was impractical. Several years later, we volunteered to go on a mission trip with friends, destination unknown, and what a surprise it was to learn it would be to Bonaire! It was a wonderful 10 week experience.

Of course, I dreamed of having lovely grandchildren, and am happy to say the Lord answered that prayer too. In fact, I see his His hand in all my fulfilled dreams.
