This is a baby girl who had sad belly pains from 3 am on into much of the morning. There we were in the tub at 5 am trying to offer her some relief. She slept for about an hour after that, but was back at it from 6 – 10. I had lots to get together for my sister Emily’s wedding tomorrow, and the rehearsal dinner this evening. I am so thankful for the help today and then this evening. Nora got great reports from everyone who took shifts watching her. Such a relief!!
While the morning started off bad, my moods was brightened immensely when I received another dream report from a blog follower (see comment from Brittany on yesterday’s post.) This is a person I have never met, who has never been in my house. Yet her dream made reference to a ceiling fan in my bedroom. This seemingly silly or insignificant detail sent the largest collection of chills down my spine!! In Brittany’s dream I wanted to get rid of the ceiling fan and replace it with another light fixture. JUST YESTERDAY while I was in the tub with Nora I was looking at the ceiling fan in our adjoining bedroom. We don’t ever really use it, I thought to myself. Why not replace it with a vintage chandelier? And then this topic shows up in her dream??? Way too uncanny to be coincidental. I KNOW that part of her dream took place because I would recognize it as truth. Therefore I must also recognize the images of Nora as a one year old eating solid foods as truth too!! So many people have shared their Nora dreams with me and in their dreams she is always an older baby or child! I absolutely believe in prophetic dreams and have experienced several firsthand. We are all intricately connected to each other on this miniscule little dot in the universe; part of something so vast that it is immeasurable by human standards. A reflection of God and of His love for us, vast and immeasurable – but part of it. That dream not only gave me so much awesome hope, but it once again demonstrated God’s magnificence. That He would choose to speak to me through these dreams. Just WOW.
Here are some pictures from a picture perfect evening. My baby sister Emily is getting married tomorrow. This was the rehearsal:
Thank you, Amanda, Denise, Julie, and Maria (Mitch & Ellie too!) for making this day run so smoothly and for taking such good care of Little Miss while we were away celebrating the sweet impending nuptials!
Thank you, Brittany for sharing your dream with me and for including the part that might have seemed silly! I’m off to have some dreams of my own! Goodnight!
He said, “Listen to my words:
“When there is a prophet among you,
I, the Lord , reveal myself to them in visions, I speak to them in dreams.
(Numbers 12:6 NIV)
THE THREE SISTERS (LIKE THREE LITTLE BIRDS), SO BEAUTIFUL. YOU ALL LOOK SO MUCH ALIKE. CANNOT WAIT TO SEE SOME OF THE WEDDING PICTURES. THE FLOWER GIRLS ARE SO CUTE. NORA, AS USUAL, LOOKS SO SWEET, WITH THOSE BIG BLUE EYES AND THIS TIME SHE HAS HER LITTLE TONGUE STUCK OUT. HOW CUTE. HAVE A GREAT TIME AT THE WEDDING, AND THE RECEPTION. I AM LIKE YOU, READY FOR BED. SO THINK I WILL GET READY AND HEAD THAT WAY. LOVE YOU ALL. GOOD NIGHT AND GOD BLESS.
Dreams can be so comforting! Hope your sister’s wedding day is perfect-they are a beautiful couple! Best wishes!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful family with us. Praying for you all!
Very awesome enjoy tonight what a perfect day!
There is so much evidence in my family that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that God and those that have passed before us can speak directly to us through dreams. It wouldn’t suprise me one bit that God would use others dreams to speak to you as well. For pete’s sake, God seems to be doing a lot of speaking directly to you and your family. All the bird trios you come across every single day. I’ve been reading your blog since just before Nora was born and have tried to find bird trios myself since then. Not one, I haven’t seen a single bird trio in all these months. You see them daily! And the rainbows. Your family sees a lot of rainbows as well. My kids follow your blog along with me, and we all have agreed for some time now, Nora has a purpose and she’s not going anywhere, at least not for a while. She brings too much hope, joy and faith to so many people. The reason for her existence is very clear and when her time does come to return home in Gods arms, I’m certain you’ll be able to see that reason as well.
I hope you feel better tonight sweet baby girl 🙂
The bride-to-be is beautiful! In fact, I thought that was you standing in for the bride at the rehersal (that is the way we do wedding rehersals). Each area is so different. The genes are really strong among the sisters. Here’s wishing a wonderful wedding day was had by all. Bet it was hard on your Dad!
Chills and tears! So glad I could bring a bright spot to your day! Miss Nora is a very important part of each of my mornings. 🙂 God Bless you all! XOXO
Beautiful sisters 3~ and flower gals as well! Glad you could enjoy the day!
I love that God has blessed you with dreams like that! Gave me chills and I know that is the Lord! 🙂
