Heavenly Journey
 
HEAVENLY JOURNEY

the silence of night
a tender yet frightful song
that saddens the moon

She wakens slowly, fearful the dream will follow her.  A dream so vivid in its calamity and wonders why she was sent this dream to dream. Time seems stilled and night's silence seems so frightening.  A marble stone still lingers in her thoughts... a stone engraved with her name.  Why? Is this a forewarning?  Is this a plea for change? Or is it simply a dream that means nothing really? She knows you are not really meant to know your designated time to begin your Heavenly journey.  Only He knows and she trusts in Him.  But was He giving her a warning, a time to change her life, or perhaps it was simply a dream and has no real meaning.  She hears a whisper from above, 'The date was not there, my child.  Your time has not been chosen and I do not ask you to change for I love you just as you are.  It was just a dream and was not meant to frighten you.  Had you been able to read the marble stone it said simply 'May she know she was loved'.' She begins to weep silently, not because she now knows that her time has not been chosen.  She weeps because the night is still silent and she is no longer frightened. She listens and hears a hymn of truth echoing in the night... 'may she know she was loved' and, yes, she does.
