I woke up while it was still dark out this morning and desperately wanted to go back to sleep.  I did finally manage to doze off just before it got light and slept for a short while.  I dreamt an odd dream.  My husband and I were outside with our five-year old daughter.  There were people milling about and there was a dangerous lion roaming about that everyone was worried about.  We bought our five-year old a gun so she could shoot the lion.  We walked over to the lion with her, he was just sitting there, and just as she was getting ready to shoot the lion we saw a sweet little snow-white lamb standing next to the lion.  All of a sudden we said, “Shoot the lamb, shoot the lamb!”  Then I woke up.

I woke up thinking, “What!?!?  Shoot the Lamb!?”  But then I thought; Isn’t that just like sin?  We go out armed to shoot the dangerous evil lion and instead say, ‘Shoot the lamb, shoot the lamb!’
