The Message Before My Mother In Law Died!
My mother-in-law died yesterday; on Wednesday February 22, 2012.
We live very, very close together on family land. I was in her bedroom visiting her until about 11:00 p.m. the night before and just talking with her. Nothing that important to remember. I do remember as in the weeks following her talking about trying to live a good life and getting ready for when God calls her home.
That night she was discussing the plans she had to keep fixing her house until she got it exactly the way she wanted it - a dream she had from childhood. Somewhere in that conversation a thought entered into my head and it was NOT my thought! It was directed to her and said, "You are not going to be arounD that long!"
I tried to dismiss it but it stayed in the background. She died yesterday morning sometime between 6:30 and 7:00 a.m. Between times when family members were leaving and telling her they were leaving!
So silently - I learned later from her sister that she always wished to leave in this manner - in her own bed at home.
Her son who gets 'prophetic dreams', later said he'd had a dream that night that she had died. I so wanted to tell him that night, but decided not to for want of not upsetting him.
Now I am wondering, should I have said something?
And what if something like this happens again?
