Joni Parsley Daydream Believer
Tuesday, May 01, 2018
I am now in a Sherlock Holmes costume. My production is most likely playing in a high school gym.

Now my story becomes a mystery. Where did I go wrong? As far as I know, I am not the “Joni Of Arc” so I expected trials and tribulations. Jesus guarantees it in the gospel of John 16:33 along with another guarantee. “These things I’ve spoken unto you; that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: But be of good cheer for I have overcome the world!” (KJV)

Please … understand. I feel like that would be a suitable title for my life story because it’s two words I hear or say so often. In my story, I would describe all the years I’ve been asked to understand when nothing made sense. I would tell the dramatic tale of how and when I had no choice but try to go beyond my human capabilities, fight on, live on, hold on, dream on, lean on, be on, etc. Even in Latin with etcetera, I’ve been told to go on-ugh! However, it’s so compelling, I think perhaps, in my mind, it’s now a Broadway play.

Here I was, just coming home and going about my usual routine while having no idea that my entire outlook and mindset about something that characterized my Savior would change me so dramatically. I was listening but then I heard…two entirely different things.

My daydreams began as a carefree child and have never ended even though I’m no longer a child or carefree! Why do we want to grow up so fast? Perhaps, this is why I loved the story of Peter Pan because its narrative guides us through the adventure of those who never want to grow up and those who know you have to. However, it doesn’t have to be sad if you never lose your child-like wonder; the qualities of innocence, trust, delight in simplicity and dreaming you’re anything and anyone you wish to be. Wishes come true and so do dreams as one of my favorite songs defines, “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes.”

Don't you just love when you don't take your own advice and are too ashamed to admit it after urging others to do something? Well, in a cyber world where we shame everyone from moms to poor dogs, I'm just going to be honest so shame me all you want! Do I need to wear a sign or hang one around my neck? If so, I'm ok with it! ...

About Joni

Thanking God for blessings too many to list. He is my all and my always-the glory and the lifter of my head... He never fails.

Why the Name
