First post of the New Year

I wasn't sure what to write about.

I decided to tell you about the dream I had last night.

It seems like I have had this dream twice now.

I remember getting a baby, not having one but someone giving us one. I don't recall the details. In the dream it seems like maybe he was abandoned and someone found him and knew that I love babies and I would take care of him.

He is a black baby and his name is Jakeel.

In the second dream there is some reference to legalities and we start searching missing persons and wonder if I'm going to get arrested for not contacting the police right away.

It's bizarre really, I can still picture the baby in my mind.

The truth is I do love babies and I would raise another as long as I don't have to give birth.

I'm at a point right now of actually enjoying being out of the baby stage.

Interesting dream. I hope you find the meaning.

Babies can mean any type of new responsibility or ministry. This baby is different from you. He is of a different race and religion. The name Jakeel is a Muslim name.

Our friends at CCU have come up with 2 different meanings: Servant of the Great and World. I'm not sure if either of them have meaning, but if they do, you will know.

In any case, these dreams seems to be an encouragement to take up some sort of ministry to Muslim people. This may be direct or through prayer.

Hope this helps!

God Bless! ~Sue-in-Nauvoo

Me too!
I enjoy babies - and if one landed in my lap - I would take care of it with tremendous joy - but I don't want one like I used to. That phase of my life appears to be over.
I had a horrible nightmare dream - probably from the scary previews the night before last when we went to see The Spirit, and then when we watched Nightmare on Elm Street last night. I have got to get this stuff out of my head. It really stays with me.

I really like babies, but I think I'd be a better grandma now, I do have a 26 year old step-daughter : ) I feel too old and tired half the time to think about raising a baby at this point. Plus I am admittedly selfish, I am enjoying having a bit more time to myself these days as my girls get older. A baby I could borrow and give back at will, perfect : )
