Heaven is real

by Mari

I wanted to post this and hopefully this will bring comfort to those who have lost a loved one. It is about a dream I had last night. I cannot get it out of my mind and I feel I need to share it with others.
As I drifted off to sleep I recall being filled with peace and comfort.I was in heaven and it was beautiful. There were clouds and I remember a feeling of joy. Jesus was standing there and there were many other people there and my husband was there too. He looked healthy and young as he stood near me.I remember a beautiful shade of pale blue all around the clouds.
This dream did not last very long but it was so real that I can still picture it in my mind. The dream was vivid, very clear.
I am close to the Lord and I believe He allowed me to see that my husband is with Him and no longer suffering.I feel that although we have suffered here on earth there is a much better place for our loved ones. And for all of us.
To actually see Jesus is an awesome thing and to know our loved ones are in His care and keeping.
I feel now I can make it through and just give God all the praise and glory.
Well, I wish I could have stayed a little longer in that beautiful place.I can tell you that heaven is real.I woke up refreshed and filled with peace. May God be with all of you who have lost a loved one. Mari

Heaven is real.
by: Mari

My prayers are for all you wonderful people.
I was reading my Bible last night and after a while I fell asleep. I woke up with my hand still on the open Bible.The scriptures are rich with spiritual blessings.
I have attended 2 Bible studies in 2 evenings and was richly blessed. We are having Easter Sunday at the river and will partake of the sacrament.I want to encourage all of you to make a new beginning and Jesus will help you.Day by day hour by hour call on the name of the Lord.
I always will miss my husband but look forward to seeing him again. God bless all of you. Mari

Hi M Mack. I believe that as far as the glasses go the scent of colonge would have worn off long ago. I can see why you find it comforting to have the glasses and am glad it makes you feel better.
Shortly after my husband passed away my granddaughter and I went to WalGreens and then back home. We walked in and my granddaughter said,''Grandma, what is that smell?'' Well, it was coming from the back room and it was the scent of colonge very strong.It permeated the room.
We were amazed and it took a while to dissipate.
Whatever memories bring you comfort that is good.
I had bought my husband a leather chair from JCPennys but he did not live long enough to get to see it. He saw a pic on the internet and was really pleased that I was getting it for him. So we refer to it as ''Grandpas chair.'' Little things hold memories such as the little Ambient he bought me. Well M Mack we can find comfort in little things . Life is hard but God is good. Take care. Mari

Scent from Heaven
by: M Mack


Thanks for responding. I have kept my husbands reading glasses, exactly the way I found them. There was a small speck of food or something that he must have eaten the day he passed. I have never washed them since......they are exactly the way i found them. But what has puzzeled me is that the metal corners of those glasses smell of one of his favorite colognes that I bought him 7 months before he passed. Often, when we'd be shopping or out and about he'd read something then hang them conveniently on his shirt at the neck. At times, I get a very strong wiff if that cologne out of nowhere. Sometimes I smell the speck of food? It has been 19 months since he passed and I'm amazed that that metal can hold a scent that long. I have deducted that it is him, letting me know he is near and I love it.

What a lovely positive account!
My husband died 3 weeks ago, very suddenly and we are all very shocked.
This story has given me hope that John is OK.

Heaven is Real
by: Janet

Thank you so much Mari for posting that. I felt a sudden peace after reading it that I have not felt since I lost my husband. It came at a time when I needed it the most.
God does indeed work in mystrious ways and for that I am thankful.
Yours has helped me find an inner peace that I have been looking for. I do not think that I could have said it more elogently than you did.
One breath, one step and one day at a time.

M Mack, I have not actually asked for a sign but have had many in the past couple of years.To begin with there was the smell of his colonge in the room many times, just in the area where I was. Sometimes it was so strong I had to get out of the room. The grandchildren said ''Grandpa's'' chair was rocking by itself and I had a vivid dream the first year with one of my son's and one of my daughters present. Now the strange thing was that I was awake because I had my eyes open and was sitting up looking at my husband in full uniform. Now whether it was a just a dream or a dream that became reality I don't know.But I went to sleep and when I woke up and looked at the areas where my children and my husband had been I knew someone had occupied those spots.
There were many manfestations and I told the grandchildren that they were memories and not to be scared as Jesus is the head of this house. Actually the grand kids took things well.
So I suppose you can say he has been checking on us and I sort of miss it now.
But I realize now that God really is watching over us and we can be assured that heaven is real. Maybe your husband will give you a sign, maybe in your sleep. Take care of yourself and keep posting. Mari

for Trish
by: Mari

Trish I went through that too with my husband passing.It was the hardest thing ever and I too wondered about the same things you did. It is the passage of time and closeness to the Lord that has convinced me but the dream clinched it. He is safe with the Lord.
That is not the first time a dream has made me really think but it was my granddaughter who had a dream and she said,''Grandpa came to me in a dream and, Grandma, he looked young and healthy.''
My husband was so sick also and I spent many hours with him in ER holding his hand. When he had heart surgery I fed him his first meal after.My doctor said he sure had a lot going on.The final night he got into bed and said,''I love you so much'' and I told him I loved him so much also and in the morning he had already gone to be with the Lord.I will never forget the kindness of family and our local police who were just wonderful.My heart broken children and grandchildren, my 85 yr old mother catching the next plane to be with me.
Life is hard to be sure but God is good. Take care. Mari

for momma anne
by: Mari

momma anne. I am truly sorry for the loss of your little grandson. Here is a scripture for you from Luke 18; 15-17.
The disciples saw that people were bringing babies to Jesus to him lay hands on them and when they saw this they rebuked them. Then Jesus called the children to him and said''Let the children come to me and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.''
You can be sure that your little grandson is safe.
It is true that we should not lose loved ones that are still very young as it it is more natural for an older person to go first. But we do not always understand why these things happen. Just trust in the Lord and keep in mind that there is indeed a heaven.Jesus himself spoke these words and you can be sure they are true.
Keep posting and take care of yourself. We are here for you. There are a lot of wonderful people on this board. We care for you and are ready to listen. Mari

Ilove your post, I lost my 3 year old grandson in jan of this year, I have questioned god, wondered if there is a heaven or is it just over like a plant when we die? I have always believed in god and heaven but, losing a child has made me question things I never would of if it was an older person. We are not suposed to bury our children or grandchildrem and the thought of never seeing him again makes me so mad, upset, hateful and crazy. It was the Dr's negligence that killed him (2 separate ER visits two separate ER Dr's)
I do hope your dream is the truth and that my grandson is up with jesus and making all the other kids laugh with his antics.
(((HUGS))) and much love Ann

Thank you. After my husband passed away I struggled for several months with my faith. How did I know Joe was in heaven? Did I know that for sure? I questioned why God let us go through the hell on earth we went through trying to save him only to have him die before getting his heart transplant. I know now that God is good and loving. Joe's body had been through so much it was a true blessing that God loved him so much to call him home and end his suffering.
I still miss him but am completely at peace knowing that he is safe, happy and not in pain any longer.
It's just hard adjusting to life without them. We have to be strong and help each other out. Thank you so much for this beautiful post.
Hugs and blessings.

You're right- there is a heaven
by: M Mack


Thanks for sharing that beautiful peaceful dream. Now you feel refreshed, you know hes in a good place. You saw it and know how beautiful eternity is. Have you been asking your husband for a sign or some communication to let you know he's ok? I've been told and read that when loved ones have passed they can manifest themselves to you in all sorts of ways. Some use your restful state, just before a deep sleep to appear. You probably have been missing the little signs he's been leaving you. I can tell you that I've begged my husband to for a sign. I've been visited in my dreams, just last night as a matter of fact. Lately, I'm having a hard time remembering everything but eventually, sometimes days later, it comes to me from nowhere. There is a heaven, and we must believe they are there waiting for us to come home when it's our time.
Take care Mari and thanks for sharing your experience with everyone. We all need hope and peace...something to look forward to. Hugs and prayers.
