Daily Lectionary Readings for Year A
Joseph had many gifts. He was a likable person. While he was in prison, the guard enjoyed talking with Joseph and gave him extra privileges. Joseph also had the gift of interpreting dreams. We have touched on this before in our daily reflections. For many, this time of the pandemic has made our dreams more vivid and intense. And our dreams have left us wondering, what was happening? Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could share your dream with someone and they could help you understand its deeper meaning? Unless that is, you are the chief baker. Joseph called them as he saw them, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
In no way can I vouch for the website www.dreammoods.com, besides the fact that it was fun to explore. According to this site, if you are playing table tennis in your dream you might be wrestling with a decision and going back and forth. To dream you are making a casserole symbolizes new ideas or a new phase in your life. To hold or be at a garage sale in your dream indicates that you are recycling past experiences and finding use for your old skills and ideas. You are learning from your past and making productive use of the lessons you have learned.
If you are interested in what is happening in your dreams, try to keep a dream journal. Write them down first thing in the morning. You can compare your dreams to what is happening in your life, with your family, in the country, etc. and perhaps identify some parallel meanings.
Maybe this time is helping you clear out the junk. Or, maybe God is speaking to you. What do you think?
