“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” ― Dr. Seuss
On the shelves at LifeWay Christian Stores – July 4th Ever have one of those dreams where it’s so amazing, you don’t want to wake up? I’ve had them before… One where I was strolling around Paris like I owned the city. Another where I was relaxing on a beach while I wiggled my toes in the warm sand. And still another when I was best friends with an iconic movie star – Audrey Hepburn! It’s dreams like these that you just don’t want to wake up from. But here’s where life gets really good. Here’s where the nighttime dreams and the reality of being awake overlap. They blend and with complete joy, you realize that you can’t tell them apart. You’re gleeful. In denial maybe? Grateful. Excited! Stunned that the dream is real. You pinch yourself – once. Twice. You shake your head several times and ask, “Am I awake? Is this real?” I have old friends that tell me I always talked about being an author. At a July 4th cookout, my cousin said this same thing; the younger version of me always talked about becoming a Christian author. Apparently, I’ve had this dream for so long that it’s become part of who I am – so much that I hadn’t even realized it. So with JOY — screaming with glee and shouting praises to heaven — I thank you for sharing this very special day with me! The launch of my first book is a dream come true… and I’m so glad you’re here to celebrate it with our family.
I’m curious — since we’re talking about dreams, what’s yours? If you had one wish, one dream that would blend over into reality… what would it be?
I’m running a giveaway for a SIGNED COPY of The Butterfly and the Violin.
