I had a very vivid dream last night and when I awoke, it bothered me. You see, I’ve had this same dream over and over. I have no idea what it means but I realize it must have some significance because why would I keep dreaming it?
In last night’s dream, it was just prior to daybreak and the sky was becoming a beautiful canvas of colors— oranges, yellows, and purples signifying the magnificent sunrise that was soon to come. In the dream, I remember telling myself that I don’t see enough sunrises (or sunsets for that matter) and I was determined to go inside and retrieve my camera so I could capture the beauty that I knew was on the way. I hurry so as not to miss it.
I go inside, find my camera and hurry back outside to begin photographing. The sun starts to rise and it is breathtaking—a real sight to behold, but every time I point the camera towards the sun, things go dark. After a minute or two, the lovely sunset is gone and gray and black clouds loom where my once beautiful sunrise was. Feeling defeated, I turn off my camera and head back inside.
In other versions of this dream, the sun is rising quickly and it’s always a lovely sight, but my camera malfunctions and I end up missing the sunrise due to trying to get my camera in working order again— changing the batteries, etc.
Maybe I’m trying to read too much into this dream. Maybe it just signifies my desire to witness some God-given glorious sunsets on this earth before I leave it. Maybe I’ll do that soon and see if these crazy dreams stop.
Any thoughts? Are there any recurring dreams that you have?
