Five minutes to dream

"The future belongs to those that believe
in the beauty of their dreams"
Eleanor Roosevelt

The Eternal God, our LORD, has created us to express the beauty of His love. But now and them we need to bring back this truth to our mind.

We are beautifuller than trees, flowers, the sea and all animals. All things, at the first look, may be amazing, awesome, wonderful, but if realized for so many times, may have their beauty lessened till bring us tediousness. Persons are differents, everyone thinks, feels and acts in an odd form. Six and a half billion of individuals were born to be differents in shape, but equals in the capability to love. It was God, the Creator, that make us so.

Another day, on walking in the street, I saw a young girl smiling alone. She didn’t perceive me, and absorbed in her thoughts she kept walking and smiling on her way. What should she be thinking to smile of that way? For sure she was remembering from someone or something good, or commemorate some dream that came true.

In times of lots of nightmares, it is seldon to see someone smiling by the streets. And, by the way, how are your reserves of smiles? Did you know that it is necessary to dream to come back to smiling?

The same form you can relearn how to love yourself by taking better cares of your food, appearence and shape, there is something else still better: you can discover the plans of God to your life by start using five minutes to relearn of dreaming . It seems to be a short period of time, but it will be enough to build new plans and see new visions.

What could you think in five minutes? It doesn' matter if you are 12, 30 or 90 years old; dreams cannot be limited neither by time, space, nor by the gravity law. When we dream we are free.

Certain prisoner was on a chair ready to commit suicide. Around his neck was rolled up a sheet. He had awful nightmares and the evil insisted with him to kill himself. And suddenly, a memory brought in his mind and he saw his father holding his hands walking down in a fair till the tent of pastries. As soon as he realized where he was and felt that sheet around his neck, he went down from that chair and he came back to his mind.

When the Prophet Elisha ask to that widow: What shall I do for you? tell me, woman, what do you have in your house? She stopped, thought and responded that she had nothing. With a little bit more efforts, she remembered herself, that she ha nothing in the house but a jarr of olive oil.

Then he said, "Go, borrow vessels from everywhere, from all your neighbors—empty vessels; do not gather just a few.And when you have come in, you shall shut the door behind you and your sons; then pour it into all those vessels, and set aside the full ones. So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured it out. Now it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said to her son, "Bring me another vessel." And he said to her, "There is not another vessel." So the oil ceased. Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, "Go, sell the oil and pay your debt; and you and your sons live on the rest."

To remember herself of that jarr, she just took a few seconds. What can be and to mean a jar of oil? Maybe something that was ever with you, and in your haste, you didn't take notice yet. But God knows how to make the multiplication miracle from one thing you have and maybe you judge worthless.

there is an evil that takes away the smile of the persons. They feel as they live in a dark roon, with not one ray of sun. But you have to be sure that the sun is always shining outside. If you begin to think you can start to dream. Five minutes are just you need to exercise your mind, your prayers and your freedom.
