Dreaming Blind

(Christian and I smooching in the Baltic Sea)

The past few nights, I have had very vivid dreams.  
I wake up confused if what I had dreamt about actually happened. It's wild.
These dreams have been very spiritual in nature and
I believe God inspires in dreams, so I am careful to listen.

A few years ago, after the accident, I remember waking up feeling different.

I tried recalling my dream the night before 
because this dream was different; I had burned skin.
This is a huge milestone because I am usually pre-accident in my dreams; 
I have nice skin, a healthy body, pain-free, vibrant, lighter, and smiling.
Those dreams haunted me, and I'd wake up sobbing,
feeling utterly disappointed and heartbroken because I was no longer that woman,
and I missed her so so much.
I had a dream last night where Mr. Nielson and I were walking together, 
holding hands as we strolled through downtown. 
Everywhere we went, people stared at us, with some comments
about our burned skin. It was confusing for both of us, 
as we couldn't see anything wrong with our appearance. 
As we walked, the comments from strangers increased, but when I looked at Christian, 
he looked perfect to me, and I to him. 
We didn't understand why people were making such a fuss about our skin.
Reflecting on that dream, I now realize that Christian and I viewed 
each other with pure love, just as God sees us. 
We were blinded to the imperfections that the world deems valuable. 
Instead, we saw love, light, glory, and Christ in each other. 
Our goal in marriage is not to achieve perfection in one another 
but to work together to create a beautiful potential.
And we're doing it.

Happy Weekend!
