Where Dreams Begin

By: Sandra Clifton



Where Dreams Begin

By: Sandra Clifton

When I was in high school, my mother, a widow on limited funds, started buying dinnerware piece-by-piece at the grocery store. Her first purchase was a small china gravy boat, which she fingered and studied, smiling. Mother had a dream—to feed hungry college boys she rented to in our basement. That gravy boat was a small step toward her goal. 

“Mealtime!” Mother announced one night. Card tables covered in white tablecloths and fresh garden flowers were set with her new prized china. The college boys and their friends stormed up the basement stairs. The aromas of baked chicken, mashed potatoes, vegetables, yeast rolls, and gravy—that I poured from Mother’s small china gravy boat—filled our house. 

Mother’s big dream started with a humble, small china gravy boat. That fragile china vessel taught me that dreams often begin with one tiny step. With God calling forth the steps in my life, how can they not become the desires of my heart, ready to be fulfilled by Him?

How to Set a Positive Weekly Schedule

By: Holly Lebowitz Rossi

Big-picture plans, goals and intentions—how do we start? What steps can we take to get from here to there?   

Social media sites often feature hashtags that encourage us to think in a certain way on particular days of the week. That approach can help put your plan into practice in concrete yet slightly varied ways. It can also serve as a reinforcement and a reminder to infuse each day with an aspect of your positive lifestyle. Try these suggestions to get started.  

Motivation Monday
Sometimes your “get-up-and-go” can feel a smidge sluggish on a Monday morning. Spend some time thinking about what you’d like to focus on today. What will motivate you to enter the week with energy and joy?  

Try-It Tuesday
When is the best time to learn something new? Anytime! When you make a routine of trying something new—changing up your walking route, sampling a new cuisine, signing up for a class or anything else that you’re interested in trying—you bring a refreshing influx of energy into your day and week.  

Wellness Wednesday
Some people call Wednesday “Hump Day” because it lands right in the middle of the week. If you’re feeling your energy lag as the week goes on, set your sights on doing something that will bring you a sense of well-being and peace. Taking the time to prepare a fresh meal, doing a fun fitness routine, sinking into a hot, bubbly tub or simply taking 10 slow, deep breaths can set you back on a positive path.  

Thankful Thursday
A grateful heart is always a blessing. But make a special, concerted effort each Thursday to express gratitude to someone whose efforts—large or small—make a positive difference in your life. You’ll both be enriched by the pleasure of giving thanks.  

Friday Fun Day
You did it—lived another week with positive intention and self-reflection! Celebrate by planning something fun for yourself. Tuck a little note of encouragement in your desk for you to find when you need a lift. Turn on some music and boogie in the living room. Meet up with a friend. Put on a favorite flick. Whatever sounds like fun to you today will end your week on a positive, upbeat note.


What thought will help you find the way to your best life?

Knowing that my dreams are closer than I think.

Breaking my goals into small steps will bring me closer to success.

Setting a routine of positive thinking will help bring out my best self.

May God’s love encourage and guide your steps today. We’ll see you again soon!
