We start out in life with dreams and hopes and a vision of how it all will be. Then, before you have a chance to go after those dreams and hopes, life takes you down a different path and the farther you travel on that path, the more distant become your dreams and your hopes. The path you find yourself on is a good path; but not the one you envisioned.
Those dreams and those hopes are still there; following you around like that small puppy, just waiting for your attention; waiting to run and play in the fields of summer with you. Like the small puppy, your dreams and hopes have always been there, patiently waiting for that day when you will finally have the time for them.
“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:” (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NKJV).
