    I took a nap today and had the most wonderful dream. A little history--my father died last year from difficulties with cancer. I didn't make it home in time to say good-bye.

    In my dream, I was laying in bed talking to my dad. Asking him to forgive me for not making it home and to take the pain of not being able to say good-bye to him away.

    The next thing I knew, I could smell his cologne and feel his rough hands rub my cheek. He said everything is ok. He put his arms around me...I started crying.

    When I woke up, my face was covered in tears. I feel that my dad sent me this message. My sister called me at 4:00 pm and said that Hospice wanted the family there immediately. He was in Michigan and I am in Kentucky. My sister called me 45 minutes later to tell me he was gone.

    I wanted so bad to be there, to hold his hand, to tell him I love him...but, now I know that he understands why I couldn't be there and that I will always love him.

    Thanks for letting me share my dream.

    Do you feel that this was your father saying its ok. I really do believe it was, I have had such experiences with my mom and other deceased family members. It is a good feeling to me to know they are up there looking down on us. Hope you feel better about not being there, sometimes we are just meant to be somewhere else for whatever reason.

    You can now have peace....

    That you posted this! Just this morning before I woke up I had a dream with my long ago passed on grandfather in it, and it has been on my mind all day long.

    This was such a vivid dream (I can never remember my dreams). I was standing some place and I was thinking, 'where do I go'. I felt a presence behind me, and I turned around and my grandfather was there with his hand held out. He didn't say anything to me, but I knew I was to go with him. I woke up right away, and just layed in bed thinking about this dream. In all my life I have never seen my grandfather healthy, but in this dream he was healthy/whole and at peace. Isn't that crazy!

    My Dad also died from cancer (pancreatic). My dad came to me in a dream and spoke to me saying not to cry for him anymore. It is kinda a long story, and I have already wrote about it on the worship board under the post "Do you believe in near death experiences" or something to that effect.

    These two dreams are only but a handful of dreams that I can ever remember.

    I really do believe that God allows our loved ones to come back to comfort us! I think that this is such a blessing! I am happy that God allowed your dad to come to you! Hugs, Tam

    Thanks to all of you. I do believe it was my dad telling me that he is OK and that he understands why I couldn't be there.

    I am at peace with his death and knowing for sure that he is not suffering anymore makes life easier.

    I know that I have angels watching over me. I should warn the other angels about my dad's crazy sense of humor...LOL

    Off to work,

    I was thinking about if he knew Jesus or not. A few years before he died he told me he did, but I didn't know if he told me that to make me feel better or what.

    Anyway, I was sitting there, crying, wondering where he was and suddenly I looked up and he was standing there. He was wearing a white robe and there was a golden "glow" around him. He smiled at me like, "Hey, Mom, I'm OK!" A feeling of pure peace come over me, and I still feel that way three years later.

    I know that it was God giving me comfort. It was not a dream...I was awake!

    The three year anniversary of his death is next month. He was 26 when he died, after an epileptic seizure.

    God Bless.

    Unicorn -

    I'm sorry about your loss...but I am so glad that you found peace. That's the way I feel about my dad now.

    The Lord works in mysterious ways-sometimes we don't notice him...then, bamm..he sends a direct message.

    Here's hoping we all find the peace that we need.
