Dreams Are So Weird

So. Lately I've been having some bizarre dreams. I think it's due to the fact that I've been able to sleep in on the weekends. Does that happen to anyone else? The longer the sleep, the weirder your dreams get?

I slept for about 12 hours this past Thursday and had a dream about Brinkley. That he had liver cancer. (I know - who dreams that about their dog?!) And that his new owners were trying to decide what to do with him and I got to see him. Basically, I woke up really depressed. So that dream was totally lame.

Do you ever dream vividly enough that when you wake up, whatever feeling you had totally follows you all day? Whether it's a scary dream, a sad one, a happy one, or disturbing? I do.

But I had a pretty awesome dream two nights ago. Back in the day of my childhood, I was completely obsessed with the Christian pop band, "Point of Grace". Anyone? We're talking, I knew ALL of their songs, I read their book, and I remember forcing my dad to let me put the cd in the car when I was in fourth grade and saying, "Dad, aren't their harmonies REALLY awesome? I just love their blend." ha. Nerd alert.

This album remains in my top ten:

So, a couple nights ago I dreamed that my old church was hosting a Point of Grace concert, and my current boss was the worship minister there, and I was there too. Apparently, right before the concert was supposed to start, one of the now three members of PoG had taken seriously ill and could not perform.

My boss ran up to the area where I was along with some other church members, and very worriedly asked, "Does anyone know ALL of the Point of Grace songs?"

I looked around, and then meekly raised my hand. I totally knew them.

He looked at me with determination and said, "I'm going to need you to sing the alto part for the concert". 

I nodded my head and agreed. It was showtime.

So there I am on stage, singing all the Point of Grace songs, with the band. Mic in hand, I was totally part of Point of Grace.

A couple weird things that happened during this show was that after every song or two we would take an intermission and during every break I either lost my microphone or I left the church and then got in my car and realized that I had to get back because the show was still going on. Weird.

And then they told me they were going to need me to sing a solo, and I was like, I am going to need the lyrics. And they didn't have any, so I tried to look them up online, but couldn't type in the right words. I mean, come on, people. This is ridiculous.

During this vivid dream, I did get to have a chat with one of the original members (members have changed out a lot as of recent years) and I told her about how my very first concert ever (true story) was Point of Grace and 4Him back when I was in elementary school. She then, of course, responded that that exact concert was one of the best they had ever done. LOL.


How about you? Any weird dreams lately?



  1. It's funny that you wrote about dreams and I wrote about my lack of not being able to sleep on the same day. When I do have great sleep I do dream some pretty crazy stuff.

    I know I've had some odd dreams, but I just can't remember them now.
    Do you dream in color or black and white?

  2. I occasionally have dreams about worship disasters...but then other times it turns out I'm wide awake and they're actually happening =)

  3. Can I just say I loved your Point of Grace dream?! I grew up on old school Christian music too so your post totally made me smile. And my first concert was Amy Grant :)

  4. I actually met Point of Grace back in the day! Yes, I have had dream emotions follow me well into the next day and sometimes longer. I'm having one of those days today actually.

  5. Life Love and Other Mysteries was and still is one of my all time fave songs.

  6. I'm horrible about remembering dreams. But I always get worried when you have the dreams and you wake up and you have to really wake up cause it still feels like your in the dream.-

  7. Hi there! I stumbled upon your blog and just had to say hello as a fellow SITS sista! You have a gorgeous blog here and I've enjoyed reading around learning about you, your doggies and your husband- my hubby has the same name :)

    As for dreams, I just was visited by my grandma in a dream this week and it was so comforting as it came at just the right moment for me- all the stress of this weeks questions just melted away!

  8. Kathryn,

    That Point of Grace cd was the first cd I ever bought and I too still listen to it today!! So many memories and great harmonies! Who can resist?!
