A Dream I’ll Never Forget…

Last night I had an amazing dream, but I only remember one scene clearly…

My great-grandfather, Irvin, and I were somewhere, and he reached out and grabbed my hand and said with a smile “Let’s go for a walk in the garden.” Things just kinda froze from that moment on–the gleam in his eyes, the touch of his hand…That moment is etched in my memory so vividly–even though it was just a dream.

My great-grandfather grew everything in his garden, and that’s where he was found the day he passed away–he had laid down under a tree, with a tuft of grass as a pillow, folded his hands across his chest, and went to sleep. So this moment, about walking in the garden, means so much to me…it nearly made me cry then, and it is bringing tears to my eyes now.

He was an amazing man–and he passed away when I was 10…and what I remember most was his garden and his musical ability–which thankfully I have inherited, at least to a small extent…how I miss my great-grandparents…I praise the Lord that they were both such strong believers–so I’ll see them some day…

“Let’s go for a walk in the garden…”
