"I'll see you in my dreams, hold you in my dreams."
I recently dreamed of my son Kevin. Though infrequent, the dreams I have had of Kevin since he headed off to Heaven have always been comforting and faith-building; containing a specific message that I believe comes from my Heavenly Father.
When I tucked my three little boys in bed at night years ago, I would often sing words from the chorus of a 1940's song
"I'll see you in my dreams, hold you in my dreams;" I would have never imagined the significance of these words concerning my son, Kevin.
In this recent dream of Kevin, I was sitting at a table alone, and I felt very sad and alone. When I glanced over my shoulder,
I saw Kevin sitting at a table with my Mom, and he was showing her a bright and shiny diamond cross necklace on a piece of black velvet (almost exactly like the one in the photo above).
I sensed that this was a very special moment, and I knew somehow that the necklace was Kevin's Mother's Day gift to me.
I kept looking at the necklace and then looking at my son's face, which was reflected pure joy and delight.
At one point in the dream, Kevin got up from the table where he was sitting and he started walking toward me. I immediately stood up and walked toward him, and just before we reached one another, he stretched out his arms to me and we hugged;
a hug that felt very real and so familiar. But, even while I was hugging him, I knew that he would be gone from me, and I didn't want to let him go.
As I pulled my head back to look up in his face, suddenly Kevin's face was replaced by the face of my oldest grandson, Joey, and I heard Kevin say "Joey needs you now, Mom, keep pointing him to the Cross." When I woke up, I got down on my knees and prayed for Joey, specifically that he will experience the love, joy and peace of Jesus - the love joy and peace that Kevin now enjoys eternally.
In life, when Kevin gave a gift you knew that there was a lot of love and affection attached to the gift, and that is what I felt in this dream - LOTS of love, affection and encouragement from him to never take my eyes off the Cross, and to never stop caring and praying for the people that are here with me now.
"Thank You, Father God, for this very special Mother's Day gift given to me in the dream of my son. Though I will not be able to wear the cross necklace around my neck, I will wear it in my heart and hold onto the love given with the gift that I know was hand-delivered to me by Your Holy Spirit."
With Faith, Hope and Love,
