Wishes – Glimmers of Hope

Today I am over at 5 Minutes for Faith talking about wishes.  Here is a little teaser:

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you’re fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling thru
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true.

When I was a child, I loved to make wishes.  I made them while standing outside in the dark, standing on the grass in my bare feet, gazing upon the stars.  I made them in pretty party dresses surrounded by friends and family as I puckered up and blew out the candles on the cake.  I made them on sun filled summer days while playing hide-and-go-seek, as I stopped to blow on the Dandelions.  I made them sitting in a corner, in the dark, when I felt lost, scared and alone.  I made them in my heart, the place where no one could see or hear them.

I hope you will visit me over at 5 Minutes for Faith to read the rest of my post.  And please leave a comment here or there letting me know you stopped by.

    I like this about dreams and I understand it when it is about me walking again.  What in the world does it mean when they are crazy dreams:) I guess they have meaning too…

      Sometimes the crazy dreams are just that….crazy dreams.  I am not much of a dreamer when I sleep, but have a ton of dreams in my heart that I hope someday will become reality.  Thanks for stopping by!
