I recently heard about some financial institution that promised they understood my dreams. Now, this grabbed my attention. Imagine, going into a place and have them actually "understand" your dreams as they hand you money! I mean understanding dreams may put a person at the dependency of another. There are some people who claim they can "interrupt" dreams and I am not qualified to do that but steer away from people who claim to know such things.

Some of dreams are down right unbelievable, so how would anyone understand them? Like I remember I had one dream decades ago before I returned to military service. I was sliding down a loose rocked mountain side, dressed in a military uniform as I grabbed a pistol returning fire. Another dream I had was all the way back in Bible College. I dreamt I was a rural preacher and saw a two lane highway that went through a pasture area with barbed wire fencing on both sides. There were two trees one closer on the right and another down on the left. Of course, I must admit I also I had one dream twenty-five plus years ago. In this dream I was preaching and my Dad gave his life to the LORD. Then I have had some dreams that wake me from a sound sleep and I don't even want to remember them!

But what about dreams, are they prophetic or merely an inner workings of our psyche? Some say that dreams are the result of our subconscious trying to sort out all the stimuli that assaults our six senses through each day coupled with our own desires of how things will work out. Some say that it is God trying to get our attention either as a warning or as an encouragement. Of course, dreams are recorded in the Bible but I get nervous when some people proclaim "Thus sayeth The Lord". I know I do not know. For all I know, it could be the result of that cold piece of pizza before you go to bed.

Still, I did return to military service when I was 43 years old and did go to Iraq but I while I trained with a 9 mm pistol to carry, they gave me an M-16 with 210 rounds to keep with me all the time I was there. My Dad did return to The LORD years later and while I wasn't "the" preacher, his Pastor asked me to assist as we baptized my Dad in a creek in West Virginia. A few years later I assisted at his funeral, even doing the gravesite service. And about that two lane road? Well, my wife and I were driving back from the property we'd bought last December off Highway 539. There are these two trees as we're heading North that the resemblance of a long forgotten dream came rushing up from my subconscious that kinda still freaks me out. Even still, I am not the pastor of a congregation, I'm just some old disabled Vet who writes rambling stories vacillating from serious to humorous. Makes me wonder if maybe life is what you labor to fulfill, not what's handed to you?

But then again, if you ask me how I feel about moving to Texas, I'll tell you, I'm living the dream. hrg
