My Daughter's Dream

Saturday morning the most unusual thing happened. Beginning at midnight the night before, my 1 year old woke up screaming. We figure she'd had a nightmare as there seemed to be nothing wrong. She has surprisingly never done this before. We calmed her down and got her back to sleep.

In the morning when I went to wake her up I walked into her room and heard her singing a song that she had made up. It was about Jesus. She was rocking back and forth singing "Jesus ______, Jesus _______" I couldn't understand the second word but she was very happy and smiling.

I said, "Are you singing about Jesus?" She said, "Mom..I see Jesus on wall." and she pointed at the ceiling. There are no pictures of Jesus in her room. I said "Did you have a dream about Jesus?" "Yes!" she exclaimed "I see him outside in the sky." and she pointed to the window and up at the sky. "What did he say?" I asked. "He watching us!" she said. Then she repeated it all over again in that order. 

Later that morning I was changing her in her room and she said "Careful or monster will bite you." I said "I don't see any monsters." She pointed at the ceiling and said "Monsters by the temple." I am very intrigued now at what she saw on her ceiling this morning. Then I remembered the night before. Maybe she had seen something real or a vision of some sort and Jesus came to calm her. 

I also considered that she witnessed the battle of good vs. evil in a vision on her ceiling or something of that nature. Whatever it was - it had a happy ending!!  

I am reminded of this scripture

Acts 2:17

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 

It's amazing what the Lord can do. He speaks to those who listen and how he loves little children. There is nothing he can't do and the veil is so thin. I am also reminded of one of my favorite scriptures.

3 Nephi 26:16

16 Behold, it came to pass on the morrow that the multitude gathered themselves together, and they both saw and heard these children; yea, even babes did open their mouths and utter marvelous things; and the things which they did utter were forbidden that there should not any man write them. 

With all that has been happening in our family with dreams and the veil being thin I feel the urgency to finally share the dreams that I had mentioned in previous posts. Clearly the Lord is reaching out to us. Stay tuned.
