A Day to Dream

Yep, it's Monday. It's been a crazy, manic day.

But today's not just another Monday.

It's a day to show love and extend grace.

It's a day to hope, to dream.

Today we celebrate and remember the man whose iconic speech inspired change in a nation. We also celebrate a man whose election to the position as President of the United States has changed the face of a nation.

On this Monday, we look forward with hopeful anticipation of what is to come.

What is yet to come?

I have no idea.

But I hope it's better and brighter than today.

In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., on this manic Monday and all that will surely come, "Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends. And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream."

I have a dream...

...that the hungry will be fed.

...that the thirsty will be given drink.

...that the naked will be clothed.

...that the orphaned will find a forever family.

...that the prisoner will find true freedom.

...that the slaves will be set free.

...that the sick will be healed.

...that the hopeless will find hope.

...that the lost will be found. 

What are your dreams?
