Twenty-four hours later, Mark and I were hanging out together on Friday night, talking about life and what's to come, and I totally threw out everything I had learned and taught about living "today"! How easily I forget the lessons God is teaching me! As I shared with Mark I began to cry again - hoping that I would have the chance to live out my dreams - dreams of a long life with Mark, time spent with my favorite people in my favorite places, and sharing the love of Christ around the world. They seemed like pretty good dreams to me!
But even as I poured my heart out to Mark, God opened up my eyes to see even greater things. He gave me a tiny glimpse of Heaven. He reminded me that Mark and I have eternity together! Forever together! And as nice as my dreams may seem, God has planned things I can't even imagine! I dream of 80+ years with Mark and time spent in Latin America and Africa. He dreams of eternity with Mark and travel to unimaginable places with God-sized jobs to do! Wow! How small my dreams seem in comparison to His!
God, count me in! I want Your dreams!
