The answer to the riddle is this: A while back some lady named Joanna Yoder asked to be my friend on facebook. I had no idea who she was but I accepted her cause she was friends with Mom and looked Mennonite. Then she appeared in my dream that night. She didn’t do anything special, just made a brief appearance.
Last weekend I went to this ladies retreat where I was scheduled to speak (more on that later, hopefully) and here comes this Joanna Yoder. “This is so strange,” I thought. “I don’t know anything about this lady. I’ve never seen her before. But I’ve dreamed about her.”
