Black & white Dreams

Stop With The Dreams Already
I gave up caffeine for Lent and never went back. I am sleeping better than ever but the dreams are endless. One underlining theme of my dreams of late is not being able find what I am looking for. One night it was my car in the parking lot. I was given the task to rush a very ill child to the hospital but aimlessly wondered around a parking lot most of the night trying to find my car. Last night, it was a room where my Aunt was staying. She was injured somehow and unable to walk so I carried her most of the night throughout large buildings. up elevators and stairs looking for her room. I repeatedly ask for assistance to find the room. I was given directions but no one offered to lighten my load that was no doubt a bit heavy. I woke very tired. There is meaning in all my dreams, of that I am sure. I have suspicions about these two, but I guess only time will tell. Sometimes I just wish God was just a bit more direct. Do you ever fell that way?

Below are a few more images shot with 2 cameras in my living room. I like the effect. Enjoy…

Prayer

Message

The two statues are from my altar in my home. At Mass this weekend Father ask if we had a time and a place for pray. My answer was yes. For the first time ever, I have a set place and time to pray and feel it is one of the best things I have ever done. Mary's message this month also echoes that. God is first in my life and prayer is a joy.

Our Lady of Medjugorje's July 25, 2016 Monthly Message:
“Dear children! I am looking at you and I see you lost; and you do not have prayer or joy in your heart. Return to prayer, little children, and put God in the first place and not man. Do not lose the hope which I am carrying to you. May this time, little children, every day, be a greater seeking of God in the silence of your heart; and pray, pray, pray until prayer becomes joy for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

My Toys

A Time It Was

I love finding old toys. These are well loved. They have chips and dents. They have ripped seams or broken pieces but that only shows the love given to them. They came from yard sales, antique shops and estate sales. This morning on the way to work, I heard that children as young as 7 have cell phones. Their parents get tired of them asking for theirs so they buy them their own. Do kids even still play with toys? If the answer is no, how sad is that? I treasure my found toys as my Mom wasn't one to keep our old things. I understood. The house was small but it would be awesome to find a box somewhere of all my old toys. Agree? I photographed these toys in my living room using natural light and my Nikon.
