In memory

Shortly after my father died, I dreamed that I was at the Feast of Salvation. I was sitting next to my father, and on his right was his father, and so on with everyone's father sitting to their right all the way back. Looking down the rows was looking all the way back to the beginning of time. The room was filled with people, seated basically in the family tree of humanity. At the very center, at the end of all the rows, the Lord was there.

... Somehow, when I'm awake, I can never get the seating chart to work out. But in the dream ... you know how dreams are.

In memory of Dad, on the 7th anniversary of his death.

Very beautiful dream. Thank you for sharing it.

May God rest your father in the company of all the saints and angels and make His eternal light to shine upon him!

Fantastic. I'm sure this is a true vision!

.....except I am not a universalist and I would expect to see some gaps in the tree, but then as you say these things work themselves out in dreams.
