Hi, it is so lovely to have you drop by today, welcome, I have a cozy place for us to sit, relax & chat with a cuppa.

Its our winter here in Australia & it’s particularly freezing at the moment.

I have prepared some gluten free mini cinnamon rolls with glacé dipping sauce for our treat & a pot of Chai tea made with almond milk & a touch of honey.

We are sitting together at my dining table overlooking Gum trees, shrubs & wild grasses we call “the bush” here.

Which at times has wildlife guests such as Koalas, Goannas, a variety of birds including our resident Kookaburras & possums.

Into the Twilight Zone

I had a really strange dream last night, when I woke this morning, I could still remember the finer details of it!

I told my husband how weird it was & then I described the overall subject, he too thought it very strange.

My dream was that I was in a holiday factory…

I dreamt I was visiting my dear friend (you met her in Heart matters) & she was trying to renovate this holiday factory by introducing joy into it.

Creating a garden where a barren land existed! I told you it was weird, a holiday factory of all things!


Dreams are fascinating, aren’t they?

We can dream while we sleep or we can day dream while awake.

We use the word to describe a goal for the future; as in a dream or dreams we have.

We may describe someone we find attractive as dreamy or a dreamboat.

Or the concept of day dreaming can be used as a condescending remark,

“get on with it, you’re just a dreamer!”

Medical Science & neuropsychology has many theories as to why we dream & what the purpose dreaming has in our sleep cycles.

Some people remember their dreams while others don’t, some dream in color while others in back & white.

Daydreams are mostly being totally absorbed in our thoughts & imaginings while very much awake.

The dreams we have for the future, are our hopes & aspirations we have for our lives.

My dream last night, though rather strange can be simply explained, the last time I saw my friend we met at a holiday unit where she was staying.

The last conversation we had, she told me about the joy she had had at a family gathering she attended & she always tries to bring joy into barren places.

The holiday factory in my dream was also manufacturing chocolate, my friend loves chocolate.

And my husband had been talking about making some chocolate & ginger fudge last night.

Put simply, my subconscious mind had interpreted the events, thoughts & information into pictorial form for filing = my dream.

Dreams of a different magnitude

But there are dreams that defy simple interpretation or explanation needing wisdom, discernment & prayer to understand.

We are told in the Word that dreams will play a significant part in coming events here on earth in the second coming of the Lord as they did in the first coming of Jesus.

“…And it will come about after this that I will pour My Spirit on all flesh;

and your sons and daughters will prophesy.

Your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions…”

Joel 2:28

With recent & current world events, world leaders & their seemingly reckless political posturing that have many hidden agendas.

We need to continue to be watchful & alert for the coming of the King of Kings with great discernment & expectation.

We also need to ask ourselves, are we ready & prepared for His coming?

For Jesus Himself, while here on earth, said will happen very quickly indeed.

You’re welcome to read how I began my preparation when I was on an archeological adventure in Digging for treasure…

Dreams are so interesting, don’t you think?

Thank you for joining me, dear friend, I enjoyed our time together.

Until next time,


You’re most welcome to join me in The Reading Nook

Or in Prayer

  1. We are at the start of our first heat wave, so it is fun to think of you cozying up to tea in the winter. I dream a lot. Sometimes they are God dreams, sometimes not. I do love the idea of a holiday factory.

  2. Interrupted by my grandkids arrival just then. I loved that you have koala bears. Monday I had a pedicure(the things I learn about from my grown daughter!) and had my summer toes painted a color called Koala-Beary!


    1. I understand about our lovely grandchildren, smiling, I admire your ability to concentrate on blogging while they’re around!
      What color was your nail polish? Yes, we have a good population of Koalas here in the area we live. They are beautiful creatures, we often hear the bulls calling out to the females!

  3. Jennifer, I enjoyed tea with you! It is so terribly hot here with high humidity! Dreams are sometimes very strange. I rarely remember one, but when I do it is usually a disturbing one. Thanks for sharing the Good News!

  4. Your gorgeous,dream-like photograph reminds me of some of my recent dreams–adventure dreams, I call them. They are usually prompted by someone/something I’ve seen or heard on a given day. ❤ Have a lovely week, Jennifer. xo

  5. What an excellent post, Jennifer! Dreams really are something we often puzzle over and have difficulty understanding. My husband seems to dream always in great (nearly exhausting) details and recalls many of them well. I do not recall many of my dreams and if so, only snatch pieces.

    I especially love and agree with your tie-in about dreams and the hopefully soon return of our Lord! Amen!! Amen!! May it be so!

    The tea sounds amazing even though we have 94 degrees here today!

    Hugs and blessings to you!

  6. Lovely summer weather in Arizona. Yesterday, after church we had breakfast at one of the lakes. No Kookaburras but an Acorn Woodpecker performing acrobatics on the hummingbird feeder entertained us.

  7. Dreams are interesting, God can use them. I always caution people to be careful when interpreting the them, the Holy Spirit will help you. We drink iced tea here in the south but that cinnamon bun looks good and I wouldn’t mind a cuppa.

  8. Chai tea is my favorite. Growing up, I was always the dream interpreter for my friends and family. I love that you shared your dream, and are always so open. I sent your post to my Australian friend. She’ll love you! God bless xo

  9. I figured out why I forget to comment!! Your blog is set up to click on the “comments” under the title and doesn’t have an open are at the bottom. I guess they are all a bit different. Just like people! I love dreams too and always try to figure out what I am being told through them. Have a great week.

  10. Hi Jennifer, visiting you from Deb’s linkup. I always write my dreams down if they’re vivid, then pray about them. God often speaks to me through my dreams. My friend is also talking about dreams, as in our calling today on the blog. I hope you’ll drop by. 🙂

  11. Dreams are so useful to help work out feelings and problems from the day too. I enjoy dreams. Can you direct your dream or hit instant replay if you do not like how it is progressing? I can and have not met anyone else yet that can. My husband expressed amazement when I told him about this once. Thanks for joining us at the #LMMLinkup this week.

    1. No, I can only wake myself up out of a dream if it is nasty! Telling myself in the dream that it is a dream not reality.
      I have read some research subjects that can do what you can though. Very interesting Mary!


  12. It’s fascinating how God designed our world with all its variety. Cold for you, 21 days over 100 Fahrenheit in June for us. But it gets down to the same lovely things, including tea with friends, enjoying the nature around us, and meditating on God and His gifts. Thanks for sharing.

  14. I love this post, Jennifer and I’ve truly enjoyed visiting with you today. Thank you so much for sharing! God bless you, Sister! 🙂

    Also, I would love to have the recipe for your mini cinnamon rolls and dipping sauce. 🙂

    1. Hi Tai, lovely having you drop by! I used just a normal cinnamon roll recipe but converted it to gluten free ingredients & just made them small in size. The sauce was a simple powdered sugar glacé but freshly made as a dipping sauce! 😀

  15. I find dreams fascinating too, Jennifer, except most times I don’t remember mine when I wake up. Thank you for reminding us to be watchful as we anticipate Christ’s return.
    Blessings to you in 2019.

  16. I once read a book about analyzing dreams. I think they often uncover something that had been on our minds, even though we may not realize it until we dream it. We do need to be prepared for Christ’s return. Thank you for the gentle nudge in that direction!

  17. Such fun here Jennifer! I love the way you worked through your dream; so many times I have similar dreams and am constantly fascinated at how the subconscious weaves these stories! I also love that you reminded us of the soon coming of the King of Kings! may we be alert to the signs!

  18. This is such an interesting phrase…”by introducing joy into it, creating a garden where a barren land existed.” Introducing love, hope and joy can plant seeds that create a beautiful garden where hopelessness and barrenness formerly existed.

    Dreams are interesting, Jennifer, and it’s interesting to ponder that dreams will play a significant part in the future.

    1. Absolutely Lisa! Dreams are fascinating to all of us & as a therapist I find them even more fascinating. Often it’s the brain filing the days events in how the subconscious mind can understand.
      But as scripture tells us at other times they are much more significant then that!
      Lovely having you drop by today 😊
