Dream from the mailbag:
I recently lost my step sister, whom I was very close to, to a rare form of cancer and since then have random dreams of her. She left the house when I was around the age of 12 to live with her mother. And I haven’t seen her since. She lived to be 24 and I am now 15. The dream that stood out most to me was this:
God granted her 24 hours to come back to our family and have some final words with them, because she wasn’t really allowed to have contact with us while she was living with her mother. At first, I was the only one who knew. She told me to meet her in her old room, and so I did. We spent hours catching up and telling her how much I miss her and need her back in my life. I asked her what heaven was like, and she put an image into my head of the black sky. It looked like space. There was a certain star that stood out from the rest and it was her. She was a star. I then took her to see the rest of the family and we were all so excited to have her back. And when we realized her time was almost up we all went back to her room and she hugged each of us and said her final goodbyes, lied on the bed with a single black rose, and fell back into eternal sleep.
