Sometimes, before I fall asleep, I will give my full concentration to one of my favorite mysterious experiences. “Moments of the Immortal,” I call these inexplicably lovely happenings. In any event, one of these divine occurrences happened as I slept.
For months after my first child was born, it made me sad to think that my grandfather would never see his very first great grandchild. My maternal grandfather and I had been very close, and I would often think of him and the happy hours we had spent together. And then, one night, my grandfather came to me in a very meaningful dream that I will never forget.
I was holding my son on my lap, both of us enjoying heavenly breezes and a sun drenched landscape, when all of a sudden my grandfather was walking towards us, his smile deepening with every step he took. He was nattily dressed, as he most often was in life, wearing a well cut suit of clothes and sporting the hat I always remembered. He sat down on the grass opposite us and took his great grandson in his arms. They played together for quite some time, each of them enjoying the company of the other. I watched on, my heart filled with joy, my mind fully concentrating on the miracle that unfolded before my tear-filled eyes. My grandfather was wearing muted browns; my jubilant son was dressed in a three piece suit of green and white. I’ve never forgotten their mutual joy and laughter as they romped in the glorious sunshine that enveloped them both.
All too soon the sun was going down. My grandfather gave his great grandson a final hug before he stood up and handed my baby son over to me. “I have to go back now Bets,” he said, his smile turning wistful, his dark eyes shimmering with love. He turned and left us, his countenance disappearing into the last rays of the magnificent sunshine from which, undoubtedly, God had brought him forth.
