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)
