I was restless in my sleep last night with lots on my mind. Everytime I would stir, I thought of LouLou, lying in a hospital bed with a broken hip. She fell night before last and they wanted to do surgery yesterday on her hip but they were concerned about signs of trouble with her heart. After 102 ½ years, it’s weak and tired.
Last night, I saw a scene that was so beautiful and comforting to me. As I was praying for LouLou, I saw her standing on the bank of a river that was deep and wide. She could see a beautiful, verdant land on the opposite bank. It was infinitely more beautiful than the side of the river she stood on. The lush and beautiful landscape sloped up to what appeared to be a glistening city that was obscured somewhat by soft clouds and a refreshing mist. She sadly thought “I don’t have the strength to swim and I’ve no boat to cross in.” Immediately, a host of angels that had been hovering unseen to her eye surrounded her and spoke “We will carry you on wings as an eagle.” She lifted her arms and was gently lifted off the ground and I heard her laugh with delight.
No one but God knows the moment and the hour that she will make this journey. But as I prepare to leave today on my trip to the Rainforests of Central America, I am at peace that she has a company of angels attending to her.
I return next Tuesday night and will look forward to sharing the amazing sights, sounds and knowledge gained from my trip.
