Prayers For Daydreamers (And Other Mental Escapists)
Photo by Vera Kratochvil         I confess, I'm a daydreamer. Okay, to be more honest, I'm an extreme daydreamer.  Or perhaps "pathological" would be a more honest word. Perhaps you don't daydream...but you DO fill up your mind with other people's imaginati...
I confess, I'm a daydreamer. Okay, to be more honest, I'm an extreme daydreamer. Or perhaps "pathological" would be a more honest word. Perhaps you don't daydream...but you DO fill up your mind with other people's imaginations in the form of novels, TV shows, and movies.

Lord, my soul brims. Your Word, Your beautiful Self-portrait. Ripples in my heart, Makes it tremble with love for You. Fullness overflows. My words cascade. Though they can't express the loveliness I see, Nor vibrate in perfect sympathy with my heart's strings. As You draw out their music.
