Disappointment

Early this morning I had a very interesting dream. I dreamed that I was in the Harry Potter movies, only we were in dark forests of BC. There was a flying broom race, and Harry, myself, and Hermione were racing against each other. We got to practice by flying over the mountains and waving to the adoring fans below. When we were about to begin the race, Harry and I decided we needed to spend some time studying the Bible. I was trying to tell him about this verse in Isaiah, and I was having difficulty communicating my thoughts, when all of a sudden, I blurt out, "Harry, you are a beautiful, beautiful man." I don't know what his response was, because at that point, the phone rang, and I was informed that the government has decided not to fund my summer student position. So not only am I out of a great, amazing, wonderful job, I didn't get to hear what Harry thought regarding my heartfelt proclamation. Extreme disappointment.

Wow, Jennie, most amazing dream ever! I wish that I too could have heard Harry's response. Don't you love those dreams that are so random and amazing? The other day I had a dream that I caught the evolutionary link between fish and amphibians when I went fishing. It was weird and crazy. I hope you find a replacement great, amazing, wonderful job.

I once had a dream God answered my prayer. When I woke up, I was so pumped to tell everyone that God had actually heard me and done something! Then I realised that it was just a dream... that was supremely disappointing.

Regardless, I'll be praying that you find a great job! You know, there are lots of them in Winnipeg...
