Dreamed I’m in a room wandering around unable to open my eyes, like they’re almost glued shut. I keep trying really hard but they will not open all the way and the little I can see is very blurry. Next, I’m lying on the floor and someone comes out of a bathroom stall and says, “are you okay?” and helps me up. I lie down on a bench-like counter and there is a computer screen or laptop near my head and as I’m looking at it, I suddenly think about homeless people and how simply lying down and watching a movie would seem so wonderful and comforting to them.
Note: Later, I wondered if the person in the dream who wanted to help me was actually homeless, and if I was made to feel what it must be like for them. As I am finalizing my notes for this website today, I realize my heart needs to be opened wider regarding the homeless.
Then the dream continued, and I was suddenly in another place with a stone floor and a large, Roman-like, open window area with a stone bench. Sitting on the left side of the bench is a man who turns and looks deeply into my spirit and says without talking to “come see” and motions with his left arm sweeping open. I sit next to him on the right and look at THE most beautiful scene of trees and sky in the most vivid and never-before-seen colors of magenta, purples, deepest greens, yellows, blues.
It is so magnificently overwhelming that I begin to weep, and I look at him again as if to say thank you, but he already knows and has the most beautiful peace and love and serenity and everything perfect in his face and smile. Then I notice he has shoulder length hair but it’s salt and pepper color, yet his face is ageless. His smile and the look on his face was pure love and acceptance. I not only saw it but felt it in every part of my being.
Then…I see my son and his family (currently agnostics) coming around from behind me and they stand to the left of Jesus, and I introduce them to him and invite them to “come see” also without talking, and I see them smile and the look on their faces of that same joy and beauty shining brightly on them, but most importantly – that they want to see.

As I leave this dream section of God Ripples, I pray that you too will want that same beautiful joy and love shining on and in you. If you don’t know Jesus, you can simply tell him you want to know him. He will invite you to “come see” all that he has to offer. It is a glorious feeling. It is a glorious gift. But he waits for you to want to see.
