Forward, Ho!

Posted on 2006-12-13. Filed under: Thoughts |

Is a man the sum of his dreams? the sum of his fears? I recall the dreams I had as a boy and the person that I was then. I think of the freedom of spirit that I had and the resoluteness of strength.

Wow, that’s a very good thought and something I don’t think I think on enough. Not only am I currently living my life for Him, but also do my dreams reflect a life devoted to him.

For me, I can’t separate my dreams and goals from my life. It’s like the chicken and the egg. One becomes the other which creates more of the first.
