What Is Your Dream Day?
Some of you wrote in to tell us about your dream day. It made Greenie and I so happy getting all your messages!
We read them out loud to each other and then sent out a bunch of free books to those who wrote in!
This was one of our favourites:
“My dream day would involve waking up at 5am (which seems unbearable to a Melbournian, yet would be worth it), making a coffee and then grabbing my pre-packed backpack to go on a sunrise hike with a friend. As we walked through the Dandenong Ranges with first light touching our cheeks, the conversation would be rich and the laughter would echo down the valley. Sunrise, 7:12am. Brew 2nd coffee. Prophetic declarations of life and love over our lives and our nation. Cook breakfast on the BBQ. Share breakfast with a traveller who camped at the look out and share stories of life.
10am, back home. Chuck on some dance music and bake muffins. While they bake, do some watercolour painting. Midday. Grab a toastie from my local cafe with the crew and then go for a mountain bike ride, just for 2 hours. Smash burgers after and reminisce about the drops and berms.
Dinner. I’ve had a shower with great water pressure and joyfully washed the mud from the trail off, ready to go to your house for dinner. I’ll bring a delicious homemade quiche, locally grown berries and Merlot. We and our ‘family’ share great conversation, passing dishes over a large dinner table. There is a comfortable content silence as we sip drinks on the balcony watching the sunset and the birds come to roost It’s dark, let’s light it up!
Worship in the lounge room, with a jembe, everyone feels free enough to dance and sing with all their hearts. Cake. And ‘new business idea’ brainstorming at the end of the day. Bed, 11pm, falling asleep to the sound of the bush outside. Lovely. This is my ‘local’ perfect day.”
What is your dream day?
