Our oldest has been experiencing a lot of bad dreams lately so every night he asks that when we pray, we pray for God to take away his bad dreams and give him good dreams. We repeat this prayer again if he wakes up in the middle of the night with a bad dream, allowing him to fall back to sleep.
One of the nights our youngest wanted me to say the same prayer to him too. Which I did. However, our oldest was upset that I said the exact same prayer. So, later that night when he woke up screaming he told me "LITTLE BROTHER STOLE MY GOOD DREAMS!"
However, this morning my oldest told me: "Mommy, God answered my prayer last night." Oh yea buddy, how is that? "He gave me sweet dreams about us going back to Hawaii with Grammy and Pops. And you were there, and daddy, and Little Bro. It was a really nice dream mommy."
Until late spring (when we go back to Hawaii with my folks) I can only imagine and hope his dreams look something like this...
What are you dreaming of today?
