Happy. Fulfilled. Perfect. Gathered Thoughts

its very seldom i sit down to write a post and have nothing to write. 
i received a card in the mail from 

Look what I got in the mail! 

Its a little funny and eerie that this is the card i received. My greatest goal in life, aside from living every day for Christ, is to open a bakery. Lately, however, that little dream of mine has been slipping away. I have been letting the smallest obstacles turn into HUGE ones and i was actually preparing myself to settle on a different dream. But then this little gem of a card creeped its way into my life. 

A pocketful of sweets dreams eh?
to always remain happy i dream of the bakery, to always be perfect (although the farthest from my reach) i remember i have little sisters who need a role model, to always be fulfilled i thank my Father for the ultimate sacrifice he gave. 

In my 23 years or so of living i have had MANY MANY MANY dreams in my heart. 
but there are only a few that have stayed with me. There are times in your life when you have to dig down deep inside your heart and remember why you are doing this or why you are here. 
My bakery is my sweet dream. 
Marrying Brad is my sweet dream. 
Raising a child in the eyes of God with Brad by my side is my sweet dream. 

Check out the other Gathered Thoughts cards and posts! 
Thanks Lani for including me! 



  1. I can't believe how many of the cards I sent out related to a here and now moment. So happy to have you participate.

  2. Such a great reminder to always remember why everyone should just keep moving toward a dream, even when it feels like it's so far away.

  3. Love the beauty of this reminder!


  4. May God bless you as you continue to live your life for Him and fulfill those dreams as He brings each one to fruition (in whatever way He chooses). Beautiful post :)


  5. This is awesome! I love how GOD sends us random reminders every once in awhile to do the things that we love!

  6. Sometimes God knows just what to send our way and when!

    I sure do hope you get to fulfill your sweet (and worthy) dreams!

  8. You do have sweet dreams! We're firm believers that in the right time, you'll feel the urge to pull them out of that pocket so God can breathe life on them! Sounds like He's already doing that with a few of those dreams!
