Dreams can be incredibly wild and at other times quite serene. From my own experience a consciousness at stress perhaps has a tendency to lead us into the wildest of dreams. While a consciousness at rest leads us into the more serene. How do we know which ones to hold on to? For me the ones in which my mother appears always gets my attention. She lived to encourage me and anyone she ever encountered. Even today, the Lord knows when I need intervention from the Host High (Sirach 34:1-8, 18-22), her spirit descends. As we celebrate All Saints this Sunday I am grateful for my mother’s presence still encouraging me today. Be encouraged. A consciousness at rest in the Lord always receives its reward.
“Lord, if you had been here… John 11:32-44 I never thought to ask this when my mother died. As a believer, instinctively I knew he was right there. The hardest part for me were the very last moments between her living and physical death. Of course once she had died I did not expect Christ to open her eyes. Yet oddly enough in her death it was my eyes that Christ would open. In my opinion, everyday is a day of celebration for all of God’s Saints in his kingdom, both heaven and earth.
John 11:32-44 “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”
Wisdom of Solomon 3:1,9 But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment will ever touch them. Those who trust in him will understand truth, and the faithful will abide with him in love, because grace and mercy are upon his elect, and he watches over his holy ones.
