King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."

Dream House

Yellow gingham curtains puffing in a breeze,

Fresh from the sea. I hear the waves crash.

I have remade this little cottage where Grandmother’s house

Once stood. And now it shines with bright white light,

It’s finished, floors gleam, and I’m ready to move in.

But Grandmother says no, she wants the room.

In fact, she has her reading chair in her arms.

She is young and beautiful and smiling.

I wonder where my parents are, and she laughs.

“The beach, of course. Stay with me. We’ll read poems.”

I feel joyous, safe, loved, content.


I wake, wishing to hold on to this dream,

Somewhat troubled that I am readying that room

At this time of life when there’s still so much

To be done. Only God knows whose room I prepared,

When He’s ready, He will tell me.

I feel joyous, safe, loved and content. A lovely dream of
blessings. Sweet the gingham curtains puffing from the
fresh breezes of the sea.

Often are dreams are just someone who loves us telling us that all is well and to enjoy the summer breeze on the curtains.
Reviewed by JASMIN HORST SEILER 5/3/2012
There seem to be also many mansions in your soul, sunlit and gleaming, keep the doors open as you are, bless you!
Reviewed by Patrick Granfors 5/3/2012
Thoughtful and introspective. It's actually a very good basis for a book...The Preparer. Patrick
