Taste Test

A thought, a nightmare, a dream; and what does it all mean? Perhaps its meaning hides inside the clouds and reveals itself with the outpouring of rain that often comes with a flooding deluge of pain. Anyway, last night, I had a dream. I cannot recall most of my dreams, and a few of them I can never forget. This dream was about friends of mind whose names I shall alter and call them Grant and Justine. In the dream, they created a secret recipe and made a tasty carbonated beverage. I'm no food expert, but they sought me out for a taste test; and I found it to be a most refreshing drink with a very soothing quality. Their drink had the ability to immediately capture one with suspense upon contact with the tongue. And it had a smoothness that, in a flash, released a taste so pleasing and subtle. I highly commended them on their new product and bade them the speed of God. And again I ask, what does it all mean? I cannot be for certain, but it occurred to me that we often face situations that are rather suspenseful and hold a ton of questions with so few answers. I sense that if we remain poised, calm, and prayerful, the outcome will give birth to or release a taste from heaven with the touch of Almighty God. 09042017PS 2nd Contest, Dreams, Nayda Negron; Contest #330, Brian Strand
