Have no regrets

OK - I have to share with you a dream that I had... I dont know what it means - but it was SOOO vivid.


It started with me in my wedding dress & the day I got married. It was like a Christmas Carol moment, where I was back in time, watching myself from a distance - like the Ghost of Weddings Past took me back in time.


There I was, young (& skinny) & in my great, awesome, wonderful dress... & I was watching myself at my wedding - enjoying the moment, enjoying the people around me, just enjoying the day.


Then, it was like the scene shifted & I was standing in front of a sewing dummy - where they put dresses on to sew up... I have no idea what they call that - but see them on Project Runway. My wedding dress was on the mannequin, but then it shifted... it changed like something you'd see in a computer program - it moved around, fabric shifting, it was crazy! And it transformed into like a party dress....& in the back ground, I could see stories of my life - things Ricky & I have done- seeing Lindsay & Alaina & Julie & family in the back ground - fun things, laughter - all behind this dress...


Then the dress shifted again & it turned into what I call a "Mother of the Bride" dress - & I could see in the back ground the girls all grown up - & the twins all grown up - & just an older life for myself.... it was the most bizarre thing! Again, the dress just shifted...


Finally - it shifted one final time & it was like a dress that you would put on someone for a funeral. It didnt freak me out - I was just amazed that I was watching this dress change....


But the thing that really was crazy - a bag then covered the dress - like a dressing bag that is over a beautiful dress to protect it...& it was white - & then writing in black came across it & it said, "Have no regrets"....


I woke up with my eyes wide at 5:00 am ....


It was just so vivid & bizarre & touching ....


Maybe because I watched a bunch of recorded "Say Yes to the Dress" ??? - & I think after the Matthew West concert with the song "Going through the Motions" & how he was saying at the end of your life, may we never say "What if I had given everything"...


I have to say - it made me look at my day differently....


Have no regrets.....

  1. Wow...just..wow! What an incredible dream. I love dreams like that and I'm glad you blogged about it. I've always wished I could chronicle my dreams, because I know I could get something out of them. Then again, some of them come from eating pizza right before bedtime. LOL.

    The worst one ever was when I dreamed my mom died. I vividly remember seeing her funeral and realizing I'd never see her again. I woke up screaming with tears streaming down my face. Sometimes I think those dreams are messages from God telling us to not take anything or anyone for granted.

    Thanks for sharing your dream with us!

  6. Rebecca,
    What an interesting dream. Do you analyze your dreams or just think it was too much pepperoni before bed? =)

    BTW I love that picture. Your dress truly was amazing!!! You look like the "Belle" of the ball =) (How clever am I? =)

    Have a Blessed evening friend,
    Dawn

  7. Huh? That is pretty wild there girl! No more chips and salsa for you!
    No regrets is a good moto to live by, that is for sure! Maybe it was a way to say that God wants you to live every stage of your life with no regrets!! Serve Him with all you've got!! Maybe?

  10. Whoa! That's one of those dreams who can really spook yourself over if you let your 'awake' imagination try to interpret it! The crazy ones are the ones you remember - never the bazillion of ho hum & nice happy ones.

  11. What did you eat yesterday? What did you drink? Did you take any new medicine or cold medicine? That's the first place I think back to. No matter what, I think the message of no regrets is key for any and every one of us. Keep us posted if you learn anything more.

    Oh, you asked a while back about Mush Burgers. It's similar to a sloppy Joe only you use ground beef or turkey, diced onions, cream of mushroom soup, Katchup and mustard about 1/4 C of each. Add it to a burger bun or dip with corn chips is good too. Great when you're looking for a cheap meal w/few ingredients. Let me know what you think. It's not really pretty to look at but it's good! One of my mom's recipes from our tight budget days.

  13. Bec... you know what... I think that in light of the day that was ahead... God gave you that dream to COMFORT you... I can see so much comfort in this dream of a long life with family that you love surrounding you... to me... not a freak out kind of dream but one that should bring a sense of peace....
