You have to have a dream so you can get up in the morning.” (Billy Wilder, late Austrian-American filmmaker)

Have you ever been awakened in the night by a horrible nightmare? At other times perhaps you woke up, realizing you had had a beautiful dream that you wish hadn’t ended. Wilder, however, was probably referring to a hope or plan for the future that helps you begin each day with a purpose, something to accomplish. That’s a good way to start the day.

A dream fulfilled is a tree of life . . . It is pleasant to see dreams come true. (Proverbs 13:12, 19)
