i woke up one night and much to my surprise
a white apparition stood before me
dressed in immaculate white gown
she has a serene face with no trace of past pains.
her feet was just bare but as if she floats
hands so warm giving you a soothing feeling
telling me from within i am safe with her
and so i let her take my hand and dismiss this quiver.
she led me to a magical place high above the clouds
a place where adversities and hurts cannot be found
all you can see are playful cherubs with cute, chubby faces
flying angels greeting you as you enter the fortress.
all of a sudden there’s a beaming light before us
so strong and vibrant, it made my eyes burn for a while
an unexplainable feeling washed over me that very minute
then a voice out of the blue thundered uttering, “My Child.”
i knew then i’m having a glimpse of dear heaven
but still can’t believe myself,
no it simply cannot happen
was i alread dead and God is now welcoming me
i blurted “Oh, Lord,is it my time already?”
He replied “No, it’s not yet, my child. I just went into your dreams
so I could grant a wish.”
Remember when you were a kid, you asked Me for this?
I guess it’s a little overdue so I thought of giving it to you now.”
Amazed, I couldn’t speak for a minute
And so I realized God really do answer prayers in His time
though a lot of us simply think He ignores our petitions
there could be reasons for such delays, the NO’s are actually sooner…
