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.
