Inspired Dreams

For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; then He openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction.

Job 33:14-16

Sometimes dreams aren't just that. Sometimes they are a vision of things to come...

What I wrote on Oct 13, 2006

I had a dream last night that Sadie wrote out a note to us. The note was a 12 line "poem" of sorts. It was a prophesy. I can't tell you exactly what it said, although I read the entire thing in my dream (It freaked us out too much to read all at once, though). It basically said, on the first 4 lines, you have no time. Grab what you can and get out of you house. GO.

We grabbed some clothes and the kids and took off in the truck. (I don't think I saw it in the dream, but we knew the house would burn). We started reading the rest of the note in the truck, and it said that something was going to happen. I don't remember the way it said what area, but we both came to the conclusion that it was the entire 435 loop, KC area. The entire area was about to blow up (some sort of explosion). The writings said to head West.

I read it several times through my dreams (I kept waking up and the dream would continue after I went back to sleep). We kept trying to get to Moroni's but things kept trying to stop us (tornadoes, a car wreck, hospital stays, etc...). Then my alarm went off.

It was probably one of the scarier visions I've had. It was so important to get out right then. No time to stop. It was a great feeling of desperation. That's the only word I can come up with to describe our feelings in the dream. It permeated throughout the entire dream. Desperate to get out.

I thought I should write this to you before it dissolved into nothing in my mind. I took it as a message to go West. Maybe our time with our family is going to get explosive if we stay in the KC area? Don't know.
