Dream a Little Dream... Tell Me What It Means
To be honest, I feel mentally and emotionally better today than I have in a few weeks. Not sure why. I had a dream last night that could be the reason my spirits are up. I dreamed I had a handbag full of money. I have no idea where it came from and I knew I wouldn't have a job.

Yes, I know its funny. I'm laughing, too. But I can see it even now, a stack of bills, sitting neatly and orderly in my handbag. There was $1000. At least, I think it was $1000. That's the figure I had in my head.

No, I do not run around with $1000 in my handbag. If you ask anyone who knows me they will tell you I never have cash. Ever. I keep fifty cents in the car for the shopping carts at Aldi's and Ruler's. That's my cash. I might have a hand full of pennies for the children's penny march on Sundays but actual money, bills, dead presidents? Never. So, seeing a stack of money in my handbag is highly amusing, especially that amount. That's hysterical. But there it was, a neat stack of bills totaling $1000.

I have no idea where the money came from, where I was, nor why I had it. I feel like someone gave me the money but I didn't see someone give it to me. As in all dreams, it just was there.

At some point in my dream I was in my car with a blond woman sitting next to me. I didn't know her. I've never seen her before. She had this really bright smile and happy look on her face and you could feel the happiness from her.

I don't know where she came from or why she was in the car with me but she got out of the passenger seat and started to walk away on the driver's side. I called to her I think, because she turned back to the car and leaned over to look into the open driver's window. She just had such happy face, beaming at me.

I was distressed and I think I was sobbing. I said, "It is just so horrible. I can't take it anymore. I told God if he wasn't gone by July 1st that I just couldn't stay. I can't stand it anymore. I hate that I have to leave and he gets to keep his job."

She grinned at me, tilted her head to one side and laughed. "Just you wait," she said. "Just you wait." She winked at me and walked away.

That was the end of my dream. At least, it is all I remember. Such a weird dream.

Anyone do dreams?



  1. Oh my!!!!!!!!! What a wonderful dream! First, on the plain front: It's a comfort dream and an exhortation to hope. Hope is a good thing because it imagines. God gave you an image to hope for. Not just the money but the date. You have to hold on. The woman with joy is either the holy spirit showing himself or an angel. Either way it is someone "called alongside to help you." She is a representation of the spirit of expectant joy. She has given you a date to look forward to and you are to look forward to that date with anticipation because hope is anticipation. Faith without anticipation or an image to anticipate about is not faith. Faith has to have a substance hoped for...and God gave you the substantiative image: financial or spiritual blessings. He gave you a command: WAIT. Wait with joy. Not with grieving endurance. Not with negative fears. Sometimes we leave something thinking we are being kicked out and it turns out being kicked out was the best thing.

    The handbag might be literally money but it is also (and the dream could mean both spiritual money and earthly money) treasures in heaven. The car could represent your career or your family but whatever it is, you were driving you are in control of where you are going.

    1. Wouldn't it be great if the guy was kicked out? Even if you have to go, it will all turn out well.

    2. Carole, thanks for you interpretation. It confirms my own feelings about the dream. I felt strongly that I was to wait for that date and that I was not to worry about the money aspect of all this. I also wondered about the woman. The face is still very clear in my mind and that's unusual for a dream. In fact, the whole dream is still very vivid but her face has not faded at all.

      And yes, it would be great if they got rid of him. I feel terrible thinking that way. I don't wish anyone any harm, not even the jerks in the world. And he showed great kindness to me when my husband died. But all that has happened since, I despise dishonesty and a lack of integrity.

      Thank you for stepping out. I needed that word today. I am in a lot of pain and the sense of peace the dream seemed to give me was lacking this morning. You've made me feel better.
