The Brush Of Angel Wings




“He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it” (Genesis 28:12)

Swoosh.


What was that – as a small piece of my hair blew across my face? I felt the wind as something quietly moved into my space. Its’ warmth filled my soul. Peace washed over me like rain on a warm summer day.


I was out of town on a Christian conference. I had just arose up from a wonderful dream. One of my patients’ who really knew suffering from a terrible disease that caused him facial disfigurement was drawing near the end of his life so I had prayed the Lord would take him home. In my dream, he came to me and said, “Look Connie, I am whole again.” In my dream I offered to walk him home. So we strolled hand in hand together for a long walk until he disappeared.


The dream was so real to me that I had to call work later that morning and ask! Did my patient “Go home?” Did he pass away? And I was told, “Why yes he did, during the night.”



Swoosh…… And I felt the wings of Angels pass me by……


Before I left town last week, another one of my patients talked about a “Wedding” for two days. He is in his last days and not coherent. But he went into much detail to explain this wedding, from what he should wear to who will be there.


Then today, his daughter shared with me that her mom finally told her dad that he could “go on home”. She needed to give him permission to let go and go onto be with Jesus. We could tell he was holding on for his precious love, his wife.

Since then he has made the change preparing for his death. His daughter shared with me, in her father’s description of the wedding last week, he explained what he would wear. Not realizing it, his wife picked out the precise suit he had described this past weekend. Their three daughters brought this to their mother’s attention, “Mom, this is the outfit that dad described in detail for the wedding.”

Swoosh, and the small feather of an angel wing fell to the floor....



Today, I asked the daughter, do you think your dad was speaking of “The wedding” as in the Bridegroom and His bride?(Jn 3:29) For her dad was so passionate about this wedding and the date he needs to be ready. She began to cry. For the people attending the wedding have already gone on to be with Jesus.


Swoosh, and the presences of Angels were all around us…..


In Him,

14 little hearts from you...:

Girl, God has truly opened the doors of heaven for you.
This post brought me a little closer to the reality of heaven.
We walk on this earth but our heats are so longing for something more.
Thanks for the peak!

I haven't been around to the blogs in about a week. Life seems crazy right now. Once again I hold back tears when I read your blog. What a great gift you have.

Sharon said...

Thinking about you today.

SharonB said...

Wow...wonderful post Connie!

PS. I just added the "bullet points" the way I would if I was adding a picture. I found the bullet point on photobucket.com, once it was part of my text I did have to make it smaller by reducing the size from 100 to 25. Hope that helps!

We live a similar swoosh. I am honored to make your acquaintance.
