DREAM

Divulgence in a dream – Though the message was gone like a fog, it was sent from God.

Rampage – The king asks, “If you cannot interpret the dream, what good are you?”

Entreaty – Daniel made prayer a priority and enlisted the prayers of others.

Answer – Brain wave theorists say the delta brain waves put us in touch with a deep and common thought pattern.  Daniel had a vision of the dream God sent.

Meaning – As Daniel relates the dream it gives reassurance for now to the king and for us             later.  The stone is the stone of stumbling that grows to into the church.

Exemplary story:  There is a passage in the writings of the poet Carlyle that I treasure.  It tells of a man who dreamed he walked in a field of flowers.  When he awakes he finds a lily upon his breast.
