ADVENTUS - Dreaming

The word Dreaming brings to mind the famous lyrics... "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas." Bing Crosby is singing about missing the snowy Christmas's of his childhood, but could it mean more?

White is a symbol of purity, innocence and honesty. Was he missing the innocence of childhood too? Maybe he was dreaming of his younger days when life is pure, innocent and Christmas is magical. Or was he referring to the purity of Christ and his birth, the true meaning of Christmas. Christ's birth and life, are reason for us all to dream of the life to come and to work towards.

The first performance of White Christmas by Bing Crosby was done on Christmas Day 1941. It was a very difficult Christmas for the US since the Japanese had just attacked Pearl Harbor only 18 days prior. Eighty years later the US and the rest of the world are going through difficult times again. We still need and want the “white Christmas" for ourselves, our families and our friends. God has amazing plans for our lives regardless of what we are dreaming about.
