I had a dream...

Have you noticed that if you wake up during a dream, you can remember it?

Early this morning, before I woke up, I had a dream. I was dreaming of the holy father, having one of those huge Masses he has, when he travels. Just the way you've seen them. And there was the pope!

It was Pope John Paul II. He was doing what the pope does at one of those Masses.

Then I realized I was hearing something else...it was an announcer...on the radio...I was listening to NPR's report on the holy father's visit to Brazil.

And I thought, hmm, can't be two popes...then I woke up and remembered.

Funny! Perhaps you were getting a glimpse of Heaven?

Isn't it interesting how we incorporate the sounds around us into our dreams?

Father, you've got to cut down on the Kool-Aid before bed!

Years ago, I used to have my clock radio tuned to NPR. To my amazement, when it would go off, I would find myself dreaming - in vivid detail (full video, etc) - each news report. I was, and still am, amazed.
