Right Here With You On Earth

A woman lay in bed following her surgery. She was depressed and wanted nothing more than to leave this world and be with God in heaven so she could talk things over with Him.

Soon, she fell asleep and dreamed that she was driving up a mountain road. It was a sunny day with a clear blue sky. She reached the top of the mountain, as high as she could go, and got out of the car.

Then she felt herself going still higher. Her spirit had left her body and was floating upward.

She looked down below, into a valley, with a river running through it. She saw a car driving alongside the river. It surprised her to see both herself and her husband in the car.

Then, there was a brilliant flash of light in the sky and a shower of glowing points of light began to rain down onto the earth. For some reason, she understood that it was time for her to return to earth. She did and immediately woke up.

For years afterward, she wondered what this dream meant. One evening, in front of the Blessed Sacrament in Adoration, she thought about the dream again. She asked the Lord why she had it. Once again, she understood something very clearly. This time it was a message telling her that while she wanted to leave this earth to find Him, she “needed to learn that I am right here with you on earth.”
