What's 'Dream'?

Every night I tuck the kids in and I put one hand on their head and with the other I am hugging them close n I say a pray in their ear for the next day and for their dreams.

For the boys I pray they will have good dreams of bikes, trampolines, playing with our neighbor Jackson and baseball, stuff they like.

Last night Abel said "mom, what's 'Dream'?

I said "it's the pictures and things you see when you sleep".

He said "I only see monsters, no bikes, trampoline"

I said "Abel, I am praying you don't see monsters anymore, just bikes, trampolines, baseball and all the things that make you happy. Ask God for good dreams, just like I do for you when I put my hand on your head".

He said "God. Up" and pointed to the sky.

I said "yes, but He's listening and He can give you good dreams. Just ask Him for them."

I always tell my kids to summon Jesus into their bad dreams. Jesus is the dream slayer in our house!

We will pray for Abel to have good dreams tonight!
