I woke up yesterday morning with this song in my head. Don’t ask me to explain, because I cannot. It’s been years since I’ve even seen that movie. The best explanation I have is: our brains are strange.
For instance, did you know that, on average, most people have three to five dreams each night, for a total of about 2 hours? Most of these are forgotten by morning, if remembered at all, but it’s fascinating to think that our brains never stop working.
According to this website, most dreams are in soft, pastel colors, but there is a small percentage of the population that claims to dream only in black and white. I’ve experienced black and white dreams—have you?
The same website says that negative emotions and anxiety are common in dreams. Wow, I can really agree with that! Perhaps our minds deal with our fears and overwhelmingly negative thoughts while we’re asleep, because it knows that we could not cope with them during our waking hours.
I hope that one day, when we are in Heaven and slowly learning things that we could never comprehend in this life, God will explain our brains to us. It’s positively fascinating the way He’s designed our bodies to function in such an interesting, not-wholly-understandable way. No matter how many studies we conduct, we still cannot plumb the depths of the human mind, especially how it functions while we slumber. Don’t tell me such a complex system evolved from a blob of goo! Clearly our dreams alone are evidence that we are created beings, and that there exists a marvelous Creator.
Well, before you tire yourself trying to remember last night’s dreams, why not first take a break to enjoy your week in review (kind of):
- There are some creative ideas here, and unfortunately, I may need to use some of them soon.

- I haven’t watched this yet, but it should be good!

The glory of the incarnation is that it presents to our adoring gaze not a humanized God or a deified man, but a true God-man.B.B. Warfield
