We all have dreams - that list of things that we hope one day to have or experience. And mostly, we see those desires as being in some far off place in our lives. Always just out of reach, on the next horizon.
But sometimes our dreams do come true, either through planning or even unexpectedly. Sometimes they come true in ways we hadn't anticipated, like bite-sized pieces of the great dream. Often we don't even recognize these little snippets that keep our desires alive. It's like we can't see the leaves because we've decided to be satisfied with nothing less than the whole tree or the entire forest.
When we see the leaves, or the little dreams come true, as gifts from God that lead us, like a trail of crumbs, toward the bigger dream, we can experience the joys of dreams coming true. We also have hope for the future for which we long with our hearts. Yes, it is out there. Each step of the way leads us closer. When we appreciate what God puts in our paths each day and live in gratitude and joy, the big dreams come true piece by piece, step by step, day by day.
