Vivid Dream #3 -A Penny for my tip!

Last night's dream was pretty weird and stressfull. I dreamed I was a waitress on my first day. The restaurant looked like some small town dump. The walls peeling, tables needed refinishing. For whatever reason the boss gave me a party of 20 table on my first day. I went around and got thir orders for drinks and rushed into the kitchen to get them. I didn't know anyone in this dream, I didn't recognixe anyone including y fellow waitresses. For whatever reason we didn't have a fountain at the restaurant, we used two-liters for pop. So, I went into the fridge to get them but there were none left. It seemed like it took hours for me to find these two liters. The other waitresses were tryin to help me get the drinks and then we finally found some two-liters. So, I ran out and back and forth to bring the drinks but it had already been an hour, and then when I came back into the kitchen Gordon Ramsay showed up our of nowhere and started cussing at me saying I couldn't even get the drinks out to them on time, and he was throwing two liters around, so by the time I got back out there, that party left! They l;eft a penny ont he table for me. So, I went back into the kitchen and my boss was in there and he and Chef Ramsay were juggling two liters bac and forth like a circus act, and all of a sudden I was in a clown costume. All the waitresses and my boss and Chef Ramsay were looking at me and laughing, and I realized I peed my pants, and then I woke up.

I don't know what's up with the circus stuff in my dream. But, me and hubby do watch Hell's Kitchen, so that's probably how Gordon Ramsay ended up in my dream.

I've never had dreams this vivid before except when I was a little kid.

Vivid dream #2

Last nights dream was pretty cool. I dreamed that I was an entertainer on a cruise ship. But, the cruise ship was in port. I was like a dancing clown sort of, but kinda like a fly girl at the same time. When we were practicing a performance, a recruiter came and we all auditioned for fame. They needed 20 people for a music video. It was kinda set up like American Idol except we all danced at once and then some would get kicked off and the rest would stay. I remember feeling worried about Jimmy and Timmy if I got famous and who would watch them. I don't even remember who was babysitting Jimmy on the ship, but I remember he was there on the ship and Timmy was at home with Robert. Out of 100 people 50 made it to the next round, and I was one of them. Our boat left and went to Germany or Austria or someplace around there. I made it to the third round of 25 people. I didn't make it to the forth round, but the recruiter offered me a full scholarship to a school of dance. We started back home, and then I finally saw Jimmy in the dream. I still don't know who it was babysitting him, but he was a brand new baby in my dream like a month old. Then I woke up. The weird thing about that dream is that I haven't done any organized dance (except line dancing and two-step) since 2002. I wasn't even really good...I got an A in the class, but I definitely wasn't the best in the class, so I'm not exactly sure I landed that job on the cruise ship as a clown/dancer. LOL

I miss you. Joe Camel

Dear Joe Camel,

I'm feeling pretty depressed today. I feel like I lost an old friend. I miss you. We had so many good times together. And, now you're gone. The best years of my life were spent with you and the Marlboro cowboy. You were with me through thick and thin. People let me down, but you never did.

I'm sorry to say that we can never see each other again. I'm moving on to bigger and better things. I'm relying on God. Like you, He never lets me down, but He'll never give me cancer like you would have eventually.

I'm sure you understand that my family and faith are important to me, so please don't call on me anymore. Goodbye old friend. You will truly be missed.

I'm not actually craving a cigarette, just the habit I guess. I'm so thankful for these patches because I couldn't imagine how I'd feel craving nicotine and the habit at the same time. I do feel pretty depressed though. I'm hoping this goes away soon. Ecverything is making me cry. Maybe I'll pick up some b vitamins or something.

Goodbye, old friend/Dreams

Last night me and hubby said goodbye to cigarettes. We broke up the last two we had leftover. I will miss them. They have been there for me for 11 years. Mostly they've just caused me problems, but I still feel like I lost a good friend. Kinda strange. I woke up like an hour ago, so I don't feel too bad yet.

Both me and hubby put the patch .. bed, and I had some vivid dreams (a common side affect of sleeping with the patch on). I only remember one dream. But, I was walking in the desert with Moses (yeah, THE Moses who God used to free the Isrealites from the Egyptians). We were talking about illegal immigration. I don't really remember what was said totally. We came to a cave where we were going to rest and catch some shade, and Osama Bin Laden was in there. He was almost dead from thirst/starvation. So, we gave him some Gatorade and beef jerky. Moses was wearing my high school purple leopard print backpack. That's where he got the Gatorade and beef jerky from. Osama spoke English (and so did Moses). Osama asked me why we gave him the drink and food, and then Jimmy woke me up. Kinda weird.

The Trinity?

Don't get me wrong...I'm not questioning my faith. I believe every word of the Bible is "God breathed". I believe Jesus was brought to earth by his Father ([i]The[/i] God) to teach us the truth and to die for our sins. I believe we are saved by God's grace, and I believe faith without works is dead. However, I am questioning the Trinity. Not sure if I'm even supposed to capitalize it. I don't really know where in the Bible I can find proof of the Trinity, and I am amazed at how many people blindly follow this doctrine. Maybe not blindly, but with more proof of it not existing than proof of it existing. Everywhere I read in the NT thr writers (inspired by God) imply they are all separate. Even in verses not directly saying they are separate.

John 17:3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

John 15:11 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.

1 Corinthians 11:3 Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

Matthew 16:13-18
13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?" 14 They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets." 15 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" 16 Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." 17 Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.

Sounds separate to me. God is God, The Almighty, The Creator of all things, The Alpha and the Omega. Jesus is the son OF God. The Holy Spirit is the spirit OF God living within us. All sounds separate.Does this mean I'm not saved? I don't think so. Jesus said that if we believe in him that we shall have everlasting life.

Intersting findings:

The Trinity doctrine is not taught anywhere in scripture, but trinities were common in Paganism and were prominent in Egypt and Babylon.
The beginnings of recognition of this doctrine started at the Council of Nicea approximately 325 AD. Hundreds of years after the last book in the Bible was written.
The Council of Nicea was organized by the Roman Emperor Constantine and he had the final say on matters that he had little understanding of.
Creed followed creed, and eventually idols were accepted as forms that we can worship God through, and Mary was exalted to be the Mother of God and worship of the saints was sanctioned.
The organized church was built on top of these creeds. The creeds were and are the foundation for many of today's churches/denominations. These denominations are different to the Body of Christ spoken of in the scriptures. This shows us that most denominations are still rooted in a creed and in particular the Trinity doctrine. Most denominations still have the Trinity doctrine as a foundation and this doctrine originally came from Babylon.
The mother of these denominations the Roman Catholic Church murdered approximately 50 million people, had armies and banned access to scripture to Christians. This time is known today as the Dark Ages.
Some relief came during the Reformation where the teachings and authority of the Catholic Church were challenged. The Reformation restored many truths back to the Body of Christ.
As a result many new denominations started up and unfortunately they held onto some of the creeds and in particular the Trinity doctrine.

Let's blame it on the Catholics! LOL, J/K!
