A *dream book* is something that most people in our church have. God, of course, is not a genie or Santa, but he does want to BLESS us! Just like I love to bless Judah and Samuel, God wants to do that for me. When I tell somebody something I want (like Eric, maybe) instead of saying, "I want some ice cream," I'll say "I want a small yogurt from Jon and Bon's. Half cookies and cream, half marble fudge, with chocolate chip cookie dough on the side." So, when we live with the expectation of God to bless us, we should be specific about what we want. God, being a good Father, sometimes knows better than our lowly expectations, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't have them.
So, here is my Blog Edition Dream Book- some things I'm wanting now:
A really cute, great fitting, Spring/Summer dress like this one from Anthropologie
A new twin bed for Judah. We like this one from Ikea and like the price, too!
Eric and I need a new bed, too. We like this one from West Elm, except in chocolate, not honey.
