Soul Food Sunday – Dreams

Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

by Langston Hughes in “Dreams”

To desire is to open our hearts to the possibility of pain; to shut down our hearts is to die altogether.

John Eldredge in “Desire”

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when dreams come true, there is life and joy. (Proverbs 13:12)
