dreaming

Dear Brian,

You flood my dreams.

The joy of seeing you there makes me long for more sleep.

The pain of waking to you NOT here makes me long for more sleep.

I miss you, Brian. I love you.

KEEP BELIEVING

  1. Angie,

    Look for Brian in Grant and Gavin. They hold his memories in their hearts just as you do. After 26 years I still dream about my first husband. It is a comfort to know he is still in my heart, mind and memories.

    Bless you, Karen

  3. Angie -
    I believe God sends us dreams about the people we've loved and lost to help us through our grief. After my Dad died last year, I had a couple of dreams with him in them and I'd wake feeling like I actually got to visit with him again - they were so real. I wish I could have more of them. I hope you keep being blessed by your dreams of Brian.
    As always, you are constantly in my prayers!

  6. I can't imagine your pain and your grief. Praying that Christ will continue to give you the strength that you need to get through each day....one minute at a time.

    Love you...Becky

  7. Praying for you in these moments...when you wake up from sleep and realize he's not here all over again; when your mind can't grasp the concept that he is no where on this earth; when you have had hugs from hundreds of people and you just long for a hug from him...

    From someone who has been in those moments, please know that God WILL see you through them...just Keep Believing!

  8. I had a dear, dear friend die four years ago this May and in the beginning I dreamt of him all the time. Now it is so rare, but when I do, it fills me with such joy. I feel like he inserts himself in my dreams so we can still be together sometimes and when I wake it is bittersweet, but I am so glad to see him that its worth it. Even if its just a dream.

  12. Will continue praying for you. I still dream of my mother, and she is gone for over 31 years. It helps keep them in our hearts.

  13. The other night my husband was just laughing and laughing in his sleep. When he woke up he said he was dreaming of his dad who passed nearly 14 years ago. What a gift those dreams are! Keep on keeping on Angie and give those boys a big hug and kiss.

  22. I love these little 'letters' to your beloved, for your openness in sharing them with us. Angie, I KNOW you know this, but wanted to share with you, not only has been God calling you and your family to my heart and prayers, but I truly believe, even from the comments you have been receiving, God is calling MANY of your sisters to surround you beloved one. We are lifting you up to the throne of God where you will receive grace and mercy, strength, comfort, love, and peace in His presence. We continue to stand in the gap for you sweetie..We love you precious one....

  25. My dad dreamed of my sister for a long time after she passed. And I will always believe that they were more than dreams. She was there.
    And so is Brian.
