An Encounter With My Great-Uncle

Post by TheWhiteShadow on Sat Jun 22, 2013 5:43 am

In this dream, I was at work. I was right outside of the maintenance shop. Suddenly, I'm grabbed by my great-uncle. In real life, he passed away from Alzheimer's - just like my grandfather, his brother. Now, the man who grabbed me didn't look 100% like him, but it was pretty similar. This also wasn't a violent grab - it was a hearty hug. He cried out in joy from seeing me. Once I realized who was grabbing/hugging me, I began to understand what was going on. See, since he had Alzheimer's, I knew that when he saw me, there was an emotional response inside of him since something in his memory told him that he knew me. However, I knew that he didn't quite know how he knew me. Because of this, I actually feared that he was going to realize that something was wrong - that he'd realize that he couldn't remember how he knew me. I was afraid that any confusion could turn him violent. He was clearly stronger than I was, so if the situation went that route, I'd be in trouble.

The whole thing made me begin to cry by the end of the dream.

Oh my, D!  I hadn't thought that the dream could be about me...but, YES, I definitely do.

I had also thought that it was about a friend of mine - a much older man who actually is a maintenance guy at work.  The details of my great uncle in the dream that didn't quite fit how he looked actually reminded me of that same maintenance guy.

Maybe it is about my own fear, though.  :(

My thoughts were too as D stated, of your possible fears.  Thankfully, by the price Jesus paid for you, this iniquity or hereditary illness will not touch you. 

Isaiah 53:4-6
Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Ephesians 2:8,9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
