Today, I was working on a few projects in the kitchen and Emma was hanging out with me; mostly talking up a storm, but also helping here and there. She started telling me about her dreams. Honestly, that child has the greatest memory for details! She was recalling not only her dreams, but also where and when she had them–at Grandma’s house, last Christmas, in the summer. Most of her dreams were about Disney princesses and flying on dragons and ponies and living on rainbows with ice cream cities and glittery jewels everywhere. But, one dream stood out from the rest…
Emma: I had a dream last night that was REALLY weird.
Me: Oh, yeah? What was it about?
Emma: I dreamed about Wal-Mart being like those two cities.
Me: What two cities?
Emma: No, the dream was about Wal-mart!
Me: Yes, but what two cities were like Wal-Mart?
Emma: You know! Those two cities in the Bible!
Me: There are more than two cities mentioned in the Bible, sweetie. Which two cities were in your dream?
Emma: Well, I dreamed that the same thing happened to Wal-Mart as what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah.
Me: And what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah?
Emma: They were burned to bits!
Me: So, why did Wal-Mart get burned to bits?
Emma: Because of their false idols.
Me: What false idols?
Emma: You know, the giant Oreo guy and the giant pumpkin and the HUGE Santa Claus at the front of the store.
And a little child shall lead them…
