I have a sign in my office which states, ” laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever.” Mickey Mouse is leaning up against the words because they are the words of Walt Disney. He had an endless imagination, dreamed about forever, and has made us all laugh. His dreams are certainly forever!
This sign reminds me of me! I love to laugh and my imagination has not slowed down, even at 55 years of age. And dreams, well I am a dreamer. I dream the dreams of a better world, a better life for everyone, and deep intimate dreams of my heart. Which are not for discussing.
My father use to tell me that I could not solve all the problems of the world. And he was right. But what he did not tell me was how to stop the effects of the world on my heart. I literally hurt for others. There are times that my physical body experiences someone else’s pain and sadness. Is it because I love too much?
No, it is because I laugh, I imagine, and I dream! And then I pray. God and I talk about the unusual wanderings of my mind, my heart, and my soul. For He made me and He knows exactly what I need. As long as I remember that fact, I can face any storm sent my way and rejoice in the ordinary times of my life. And dream the extraordinary!
So, when was the last time you laughed? Or laid on a sheet in the yard at night, watching the stars in the sky, and allowed your heart to dream its’ own desire? Even better, let your imagination take over and put yourself, your family into a better place? Tell the world to go away, this is your personal improvement day and then do it?
We get so caught up in making money, paying bills, taking the kids to their events, doing bible study, working at our churches; that we forget to laugh, imagine, and dream. I know…Walt Disney made a lot of money and had the time to do those things. Did you know that Walt bankrupted numerous times and when things were really bad, he never sold Mickey (his mouse idea, his dream)? He remembered how to live life to the fullest… you had to laugh, imagine, and dream!
The weekend is coming up, offering you and your family the perfect time for some laughter, dreaming, and imagination. And you don’t have to leave your home, look around your house for inspiration. Then go for it!
God loves to hear the laughter of His children!
God Bless You!
