My wonderful, amazing mother, Ruth Seamands, graduated to glory yesterday, on April 17. She was 97.  I was en route to be by her side—but didn’t make it in time. I was her only daughter not with her when she passed. 

But God gave me a special gift. I saw a vision of my mom on her way to heaven.

It happened in the early morning hours of April 16.

Mom was so ready to go to heaven. She'd served Jesus all her life and knew what awaited her. During my last visit with her in January, I told her, “Now, listen, Mom, if you happen to go to heaven when I’m not with you—tell the angel who comes to get you that you have to stop by my house on your way and say goodbye to me.”

Mom laughed. “Well, I don’t know if that’s possible.”

“Sure it is, if God wants it. After all, he created the world; He can do whatever He wants. So just tell your angel, and if God says it’s okay, he’ll do it.”

Mom smiled. “Okay.”

I said my goodbye to her during that visit. She’d gone into heart failure and was on hospice. We expected her to go soon. But she didn’t. She hung on for two more months. I live across the country, so it wasn’t easy for me to visit her in Kentucky. It was good to know her oldest two daughters plus numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren lived near her assisted living apartment. And her third daughter drove to see her every few weeks. During those months Mom and I were apart she could talk less and less on the phone. But when we could talk, I’d tell her again—“Don’t forget, Mom. If you go to heaven before I can get back there, tell your angel to bring you by my house first.” Each time she’d laugh and say, “I’ll see what I can do.” The last time I spoke to her, we had the same conversation once more.

Not that I really expected her visit to happen. And, in fact, I don’t even know for sure that God sends an angel to take his children home. The Bible doesn’t explicitly tell us that. It does tell us that angels are God’s servants who act as his messengers and serve his children on earth. (Hebrews 1:14.) So an angel escort could certainly be possible.

On the afternoon of April 15 I learned the end was near for Mom. I needed to go to her. I booked a flight for 6 a.m. on the 17th. I would need to get up at 2:30 a.m. to make the flight. Early, yes, but it would put me in Kentucky at 5:30 p.m. Surely I would get there in time. I went to bed alone—my husband was out of town. My mind was full, thinking of all I had to do the next day in preparation for leaving town—for how long, I didn’t know. I would not return home until after the funeral.

That night, Mom appeared to me. 

She materialized over my bed, hovering before me. Much larger than life, as if I were right in front of a huge movie screen. But she didn’t look as she had in her old age. She was young. The way she looked as a bride--sort of. But a little different. Her face was a little rounder than in her wedding picture. I'd never seen her look quite like that. Such a beautiful face, with brown curly hair. People used to say she looked like the actress Loretta Young. Her youth so surprised me. I’ve always known those who follow Jesus will go to heaven, and will be healed and whole. Mom had lost most of her eyesight and much of her hearing. When I pictured her in heaven, it was in her older body, but well. Seeing. Hearing. Restored. I hadn’t thought of heaven’s returning her youth. Yet there she was, so young and beautiful.

Even so--even though she was young--I still felt her overwhelming presence as the mother I'd known. She was almost forty when I was born. I had never known her young. Yet despite her appearance of youth she carried all the history and experience of being the woman she was at 97. My mom. I FELT that. I knew it.

She was smiling at me—a glorious, joyful smile. Around her floated some kind of white, chiffon-like fabric. It covered her body so that I saw only her face. 

At first I couldn’t speak. I could only marvel, I can’t believe this is happening! I can’t believe she really came to me. Then I heard the distinct but gentle flutter of wings—small wings, as those of a bird. I couldn’t see what was causing the sound. This, too, surprised me. What was causing the sound? Was she really being escorted by an angel whom I couldn’t see? I’ve never been sure that angels have wings. That’s our earthly way to depict them. But is it true? (There are some prophetic visions in the Bible in which heavenly beings have wings.) Whatever the case, if they do, I’d expect the wings to be large—on a powerful supernatural being. After all, many times in the Bible when an angel appeared to someone, that person fell to the ground at the mere sight. 

Neither did I think the wings were on Mom herself. People often talk of someone who has died as now being an “angel in heaven.” That’s not biblical. People do not become angels. Humans and angels are two distinct creations.

So I did not understand the small flutter I heard. 

All of these sensations flooded me at once—Mom’s youth, her smile, the chiffon-like material, the gentle wing flutter. Emotion surged within me. I rose up in bed, my throat tight, and cried, “Mommy!” 

The sound of my own voice jarred me. Woke me up. Mom vanished.

What? This was a dream?

I lay in bed, heart pounding. Amazed. I looked at the clock. Four-thirty-two in the morning. It was 7:32 Kentucky time. I knew two things, deep in the core of me. One, this wasn’t an ordinary dream. This was real. We've all had dreams that seemed very real at the time. But when you wake up, you realize it wasn't. You simply think, "Wow. That seemed so real in the moment." This dream was not like that. It was a supernatural, true event. The kind that shakes you deep in your soul. This kind of dream/vision is biblical. As one example, Joseph, legal father of Jesus, had four separate dreams in which an angel appeared and told him what to do about Jesus' birth and how to protect Jesus after He was born. So, yes, I knew Mom had indeed been present. Yet—two, I sensed Mom had not physically died at that moment. That she was still alive. I can’t explain how I knew that. But I did. 

How did these two things fit together? I could not understand. But I have seen God’s supernatural hand numerous times. I have experienced His power and heard His voice. And I knew what I’d seen was not of this world.

All the next day the dream enveloped me. I kept seeing Mom’s face. Everything I’d seen and heard remained so clear.  So real to me. In a phone call I told my husband what had happened.

Two things occurred that day as I prepared to leave town. First, I happened to see the trailer for the just-released movie Heaven is For Real. In the trailer the little boy who visited heaven tells his dad how he saw his grandfather there—the grandfather he never knew on earth.  When shown a picture of the grandfather in his older years, the little boy said that wasn’t him. “Everyone in heaven is young.” When shown a picture of his grandfather at a much younger age, the boy said, “Yup. That’s Pop.”

Second, I wrote an update on Facebook that I was going to see my mom the next day. That she would not last much longer, and I needed to be with her. In a comment one friend wrote, “When I lost my mom a few years ago, I knew when she'd passed because she appeared in the upper corner of the room I slept in, with a soft smile on her face, and ‘touched’ me on her way. She looked her physical age when she appeared, and in the few seconds as she passed, her appearance changed back to her young self, when she first married my dad. It was a rare experience, I know, and it meant the world to me that she took a moment on her journey for that touch.” I responded, “What a story! I have told Mom numerous times that if she happened to go when I wasn't with her, she had to stop by and say goodbye. And to hear this really happened to you!”

The next day as I flew across the country, making two stops along the way, I called one of my sisters after the first flight. “Mom’s going,” my sister said. She didn’t think I would make it in time. I was stunned. I began berating myself. Why hadn’t I left the day before, no matter how difficult it would have been for me? I’d thought I had time. Why had I believed that? Now I may not.

When the plane landed on my second stop two long hours later, I called my sister the minute the wheels touched down. 

Mom was gone.

I could hardly believe it. I’d been so sure I’d get there in time. My first thought was one of pure selfishness. I’d looked forward to Mom going to heaven for her sake, knowing she would be starting her new, wonderful life in eternity. But at that moment I only thought of myself. All my sisters had been there at Mom’s side. And I’d missed it. Missed it.

I stopped in the jetway to call my husband. “I didn’t make it,” I said. I could hardly talk. Mark replied, “But don’t forget, you had the dream.”

That’s when it hit me. When it all came together—the sight of Mom so young, and the two messages the next day of restored youth in heaven. God had been telling me something. What I’d seen indeed wasn’t just a dream. It was a prophetic vision—the sneak peek—of Mom on her way to heaven. God in His mercy had given me this amazing gift. He knew I wouldn’t make it to Mom’s bedside in time. He knew the moment of her passing I wouldn’t be in my own home. I’d be halfway to her in an airplane, surrounded by people I didn’t know. Not exactly the best circumstances in which to see a supernatural sight that would overwhelm me and cause me to cry out. So God sent me the dream one day early—as a vision of what was to come. Mom in her youth—that is true. That’s what she looks like now.

As I hurried to catch my final plane, all these things became clear to me. My sadness disappeared. I was filled with elation—for Mom, and for myself, because I’d seen her. My sisters had the privilege of being with her when she died. I had the privilege of seeing how she looks now—happy and free. Like a bride.

I must admit I’m still puzzled by the flutter of wings I heard. Some day, when I’m on my own journey to heaven, I supposed I’ll learn what that’s all about.

I will never forget that vision. Mom’s face, so clear to me. Her smile. My calling out to her. Not, “Mom.” But—“Mommy!” The sight of her face remains with me. It sustains me now as we plan for all the family to arrive for her memorial service. As I and my sisters clean out her assisted living apartment. I’d pictured having to do that in the past and thought, “How will I ever stand it?” I and my sisters had been so close to our mother. I called her “The Best Mom in the World.” And she was. But now, with the vision of her so filling my head, my heart, I’m not sad. I’m happy for her. I rejoice with her. I’ve seen her perfected and whole. Young.

I’ve seen a glimpse of heaven in my mother’s restored face. 
------------------
Update: At my mother's memorial service (an amazing celebration of her life!) a few days after I wrote this post, I walked into the church--and saw a picture of Mom just as I'd seen her in the dream/vision. One of my sisters had gone through old albums and pulled out this picture. It was one I'd never seen before. Mom was 20, a few years before her wedding. I was stunned. I stopped in my tracks and pointed. "That's her! That's what she looked like!" When my sisters and I divided up photos later, of course I wanted this one. It's now hanging on the wall in my office.
------------------
Update 2: When I first had this dream, I thought God had given me a vision of what was to come. Now I believe a little differently. I think Mom was actually on her way to heaven at that moment--even though her heart was still beating. I base this on the fact that my mother had fallen into a coma about two hours before I had the dream/vision. She never woke up, and died the next morning. God allowed her physical body to die naturally. But who's to say, when someone is unconscious, when He takes the spirit? I've spoken with numerous people about this, including a Bible scholar who has studied about heaven, and they agree that this could be possible. One Christian friend of mine told me about her husband's death. (He was a strong Christian.) He, too, had been in a coma. She was with him when he died, yet she strongly sensed that his spirit was already gone. So perhaps this is what actually happened. Whichever it was--a vision of what was to come, or a visitation in the moment--it remains a miracle and tremendous encouragement to me.

I have rarely had something touch me so deeply as this post. God bless you for posting it. Your mother is absolutely beautiful! And you favor her. My mother is turning 97 in one month. We are so blessed to have had her in our lives this long. I hope for more years. But she knows the Lord and is ready to go at any time. Thank you again for this precious post. I will treasure it and your story.

Dr. Todd is a sweet and kind man. He knows his craft very well.

Almost two weeks ago Dr. Todd did the Sex Enchantment Spell for me because I was missing my ex-boyfriend who is the world to me. I forgot to do the Negative Releasing Spell which prevented the spell from taking root. (Please do not forget the candle spell)
Dr. Todd did the spell for me on a Saturday night. I completed the candle spell on Wednesday night and my ex-boyfriend called me on Saturday night and we got together and had the most explosive sex. Whew!!!! My ex-boyfriend continues to call me everyday and he misses me, he tells me continuously when we talk that he still loves me. I will keep you updated on the results of the other spell work that Dr. Todd is doing for me. NOTE: The sex spell is very potent! I have been approached by so many men who want to please me and satisfy me sexually. Men that I have known for years who don't have a chance with me. Thanks manifestspellcast@gmail.com OR manifestspellcast@yahoo.com

Hi My name is 'Niall Christopher' just want to share my experience with the world on how i got my love back and saved my marriage... I was married for 7years with 2kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time... it got worse at a point that she filed for divorce... I tried my best to make her change her mind & stay with me cause i loved her with all my heart and didn't want to loose her but everything just didn't work out... she moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce... I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out... I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice... He did special prayers and used roots and herbs... Within 7 days she called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our third child. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news... Just thought I should share my experience cause I strongly believe someone out there need's it... You can email him via eromosalelovespell@outlook.com Don't give up just yet, the different between 'Ordinary' & 'Extra-Ordinary' is the 'Extra' so make extra effort to save your marriage/relationship if it's truly worth it. website http://eromosalspiritualtemple.webs.com or call him with +2348161850195

I have three battery operated candles, the expensive ones that look real. I have a candle for each loved one who has passed. I put new batteries in all three candles at the same time. I left them on 24/7. Over a period of about 3 weeks, bright light flames were visible. Th flames look real. Two of the candles went dark after three weeks. The one candle that remained on was the candle to honor my mom. Since I wanted to change the batteries for all three candles at the same time, I waited for my mom's cadelight light to go out. Her candle remained lit for several weeks after the other two candles had gone dark. When I went to change the battlers in all three candles, my mom's candle did not have batteries inside. How could a battery operated candle function without batteries? How did my mom's candle remain functional for such a long period after the other two candles had gone dark? This reminds me of the story of Chanukah. I have experienced many miracles surrounded with the passing of my loved ones. My dad spoke of seeing people that no one else could see just before he passed away. I call these people/spirits "escort angles". My dad did not believe in God, or Jesus until my mom passed away. He never went to church, until my mom passed away. After my dad's funeral I was driving a rental car, and listening to classical music on the radio. On two separate nights the music changed to my dad's favorite songs, and the music immediately went back to classical. At first I was afraid, and then I realized what this meant. So many other miracles happened during the time I went home for my dad's funeral, to include "battery operated miracles at night." I believe.

A very beautiful piece. My mom died April 25. She lived with my wife and I. I took care of her as best I could. We made her living arrangements comfortable for her. There were times when she looked at me and stated " I want to go home " which saddened me greatly, but also realized that it was a genuine admission that she was ready. On April 25th, at 10am I received that phone call from my wife advising that I needed to come home " right now ". I asked is my mom gone ? My wife hesitated and replied "yes". I calmly drove home. Seeing her laying on her bed, lookin.looking into her open eyes,, I gently kissed her on the forehead and stated very fervently " I will see you again " I notified family members of her passing, and one day later my brother called me. I always asked my mom to somehow come back and let me know that she was ok, after her death to which she would reply " if I can ". During my conversation with my brother, he explained that while standing and looking in the bathroom mirror in sadness, he heard in a very low volume soft voice our mom say to him " I can't wait for you to see this place ". My mom did what I asked. Perhaps she went to him because he needed that more so than i. I felt much relief from his experience. " just thought I would share my story "

More than two years later I'm reading this and rejoicing that I had the privilege of knowing Ruth Seamands. I was on staff at Good News and she was our typesetter. I made many visits to her home to deliver or retrieve articles. She was precise in her work. Once I gave her my written assignment from Dorothy Rains, a fiction piece. Ruth took the time to critique it and told me to "stick to non-fiction." I valued that advice and followed it. Besides our work relationship, she was a dear friend and Christian example of an honest and diligent servant.

My mom and dad came back to visit me together after they both passed away. They also looked young again. They tried to tell me to straighten up my life. But I didn't do what they told me to do and I served a 3 year prison term because I didn't take their warning. I would really love to talk to you.

Brandilyn, a very well respected theologian, on a bus in Jerusalem, told me a story about heaven that may explain your mother's youth in heaven. Granted, it's just his theory. There's nothing in the Bible about this. So, we can't take it as fact. But, it does make some sense. He claims we'll be 30 to 33 years old. Jesus was 33 when he went back to heaven. We'll be able to run like the wind, never tire, in essence, be in our prime. Those children younger than the age of accountability will grow to age 30 or so, then stop. It's just a theory.

I am so delighted to hear this testimony of the power of a mother's and Jesus' love. I, too, was allowed such a Gift when my best friend, my mom, passed. I was on the interstate as I got a call from my sister to "hurry." It was the first day that I had not been there as I thought I might work a bit when I felt an absolute conviction in my Being to "Go!" I began to pray, "Please, God! Wait! Mom! Wait!" I felt so strongly that I had to be there with her...but God in His omniscience knew of a greater blessing. As I took the exit...the only way I can explain it is that it was as if the world went away...kind of (corny) like on the Wizard of Oz when the house is in the clouds...driving but not aware that I was...I saw in my Spirit...in the Sky surrounded by White...my precious mother; arms outstretched, gazing up up up...and I knew....she was at the foot of the Cross. As I gazed (driving still but not), a translucent stream of blood ( I guess) began to come from Up there. As it touched her head (so ravished by illness those last weeks), it became Water. And I heard God say, "The Living Water!" And I knew that I had just bore witness to her ascension as her precious Soul began to Transform...growing newer and younger and Well as she soared to her King! Panicked, I hit my CD player and "I will cling to the old rugged Cross" began to play! And I gasped, "Lord, why?? Why couldn't I be there? Why didn't she even turn to say good bye?" And He said..."All the cares of the world went away as she came to Me. If she had looked back, she could not have left you." He knew that I could not have stood to only remember her fragile frame in death....so kind is our Beloved. From the time frame of my taking the exit and getting to her bedside, we realized it was precisely the moment when our dear one passed. All praise be to God.

Hi, My mom 80 years old and has vascular dementia. I share caregiver responsibilities with my brother. A couple of months ago I saw a vision or figure going to my moms bedroom. I wasn't scared nor did I sense any evil. I immediately prayed for my mom and told the Lord I wasn't ready. The next vision was when my mom fell. She had a beautiful glorious glow about her. Again, I ask the Lord to not take my mom. Yesterday morning and this morning I felt my mom's presence at the foot of the bed. However, today was different in that I sensed her presence in waking me up. I'm not sure what to make of it since my mom is still alive and under doctor's care. Because I don't know, I've been seeking the Lord and praying for my mom. I too have told my mom not to leave before saying good bye to me. I have also prayed that when the Lord takes her she is with me. Blessings and thanks for sharing.

My son,Chris, was 14 and dying from leukemia. As he came in and out of a coma he said, "Mom, Jesus is going to call me soon, and I'm ready to go. And you know what? In heaven there's even more flavors of soda than you could ever imagine." We had a huge soda bar at his service, and I ended up writing my first book "Christopher's Journey" a couple of years later.I believe God let Chris glimpse heaven then tell us about it. He sent us other special messages too.

I forgot to mention that my grandmother, unbeknownst to me was dying during my vision. My dad texted all of us a few moments later to say that she had just passed. So, my vision happened during her final moments. I even texted my sisters right after to tell them. Moments later when we all heard she was gone we were all amazed by the Power of God!

This very thing happened to me only 2 months ago during my precious grandmother's passing. It WAS a vision. I saw my grandfather waiting at the end of a river for her. Both of them were smiling and she, too was enveloped in this white, yellow-timted light. I could smell fresh flowers and see the sparkles coming off the water. She was floating toward him. It lasted only a few seconds. But, I will never forget it.

Brandylin I am not having the greatest day today and with this come missing my Mom..I googled in stating the words I miss my Mom but she is in heaven..this is what appeared your story and I want to tell you I had the same experience. I was my mother's caregiver for 8 months while she battled cancer. on the last days of her life we my 4 sister's and myself were with my mom during her passing. The night before her funeral I had a vision, I was being pulled to the skies and I could feel the wind and could see the clouds and all the surroundings and I knew I was with mom as I was speaking to her..as we were traveling the was a sense of letting go..in the morning I came to the realization that it was my mom ascending to Heaven there is nothing that can make me feel any different. I felt my mom's peace and it has been 13 yrs and though I miss her everyday I know that she is somewhere that is beautiful and she is with her family that she too has missed so much..may you have continued peace as do I...thank you for your message it has made me feel blessed today

INCREDIBLE story! Such a blessing. Reminds me a bit of when my dad died unexpectedly at 54. We'd been slightly estranged. But I felt so led to write him a letter to let him know I loved him. I mailed it. Then got the news he'd died. I was so glad I'd written and said the only things worth saying. Don't ask me how I knew. But I just knew. That I'd hear back from him. Sure enough, I came home from his funeral and immediately went to the mailbox. In it was a letter from him postmarked the day he died. He'd mailed it just hours before he took his last breath. It was SUCH a comfort to me. Still is.

I heard a Th.D. professor, whom I admire, once say he believes we'll all be in our early 30s (remember, Jesus was 33 when he ascended back to heaven. Neither was Adam created as a baby, or an old guy). Children? He believes they'll grow up to be 30 or so and then stop there ... for eternity. Of course, the Bible doesn't delve into this subject so it's kinda dangerous to go around espousing this sort of wishful thinking. I'm not saying any of this is true. The Bible does say that we won't marry or be married in heaven. Maybe that's because we might all be the same age as our parents, our grandparents, our great-grandparents, back to Adam. Wouldn't that be a hoot?

I know of numerous Christians who have been visited by loved ones in their dreams. As Daniel said in the Old Testament, "Dreams belong to God." If God has a reason--often for comfort--to allow someone here on earth to see a loved one in heaven in a dream, I imagine He will do just that.

My mother went to Heaven in the early hours of Jan 23,2007. We were with mom. However it was either that afternoon or the next day before she was buried. I was taking a nap. It was in the afternoon. My mother always called me by my middle name Alvina. I know without a doubt my mother called me that afternoon. She was at the foot of my bed. I did not see what she looked like. Before my died she was unable to talk. But she woke me up "Alvina" in the most peaceful, sweet, beautiful voice. I know she was telling me it was real and would see me in Heaven. I have always treasured that visit that God allowed. It gave me peace and assurance that God was real!

I had been praying for peace about the choices that were gonna have to be made. I kept telling God.... I dont know hiw your going to do it... But please God I cant do this with no peace. This is Your job. It should be Your choice nit mine. I wasnt giving up. The things that stood out in your story (were just like mine) mom was young again, beautiful,,,, the BIGGEST SMILE I HAD EVER SEEN ON MOMMAS FACE.... She was so young, happy (the happiness you couldnt help but be enveloped by it) and beautiful. Momma was always beautiful. But there was a beauty that I couldnt/cant explain. And the PEACE that came from that vision.... I cant explain. Yes, there was saddness for myself and my family having to say goodbye. But thats different than peace.... God gave me that peace that surpasses all understanding.

I still wonder what made him come to that conclusion!!

I anticipate seeing my mother (aged 48 at death) and little brother (aged 6). What a day that will be! And having Jesus in the center of everything will make the celebration complete! James

My boyfriend died 5 years ago when I was 17. It has been really hard because I had never experienced a loss this close to me. I was at his house night before, and I woke up the next morning to hear he had died. He went out with a couple of friends and had gotten in an accident and died. My heart still hurts when I think about it, the pain is so deep its no longer emotional but physical. I feel like I've been punched in the stomach when I think about him. Everyone sort of expected me to get over it fast, because we were young and it couldn't possible have been 'that serious' but I haven't, because it was for me and I still get the most random crying spells ever, at the most random times in the most random places. I started drinking on his one year anniversary and I have spiralled out of control. I used to pray for his soul, and that God would keep him around to watch me. I would cry so hard till my head hurt and I couldn't breathe and I'd be sure that was the last of my tears but then something would remind me of him and it would happen again. I have a couple of friends who apparently are 'gifted', and can see what the normal eye can't. One happened to be around when the accident occurred and she said she saw the moment when he left his body. He was missing a shoe and looked really lost. Another says he came to her in a dream, to say goodbye. The last, and my favourite, was one of my close friends, who said on the 40th day, she saw his spirit being led away by an angel. She said he came to my bedside to say goodbye, and he told her how much he really loved me. I cried so hard that day I was sure I would never stop. I literally felt my heart break. I was alone one day and told God that if he wanted to take me that day I wouldn't mind. I would go without fight. All I really wanted was a chance to say goodbye. Or one last day with him. Everytime I cry I get this image of him sitting opposite me in the dark, holding my hands and crying with me. It doesn't stop the tears but it calms me down. i don't know how real it is, but it helps. I feel like he was my match, and I lost him. I don't know how to get past it.

I wanted to share something with you because I had a similar experience when my own mother died.

My mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and she fought really hard for 18 months but chemo and complications really caught up with her so she began to slow down. We brought her home Jan 813th, 2014 with 6 months. She went to the hospice home Jan 13th and never came home, dying Jan 20th.

One night after visiting her I was very upset. How could I live without my mom? I couldn't do it, I have a young daughter who adored her grandma (she was 4 at the time) and didn't understand what was going on. I stood in the kitchen just sobbing, talking her not to leave me, begging her not to go, I needed her. I fell asleep on the couch that night, I was too upset to go upstairs and sleep in my own bed with my husband. This was the couch my mom had to sleep on, her bed was too uncomfortable and she kept her feet up.

So - I'm sleeping. All of a sudden I am woken up and the,living room is basking in bright light. I look down and here is my mom sitting on the end of the couch. She is beautiful, younger, just as I remember her growing up. I could tell she wasn't sick anymore. She smiled at me and said, "Its okay, you're going to be okay. Everything is okay." I immediately woke up and she was gone. I can't tell you how I felt at that moment. Not sad, but calm, almost serene. It was her way of telling me that I would be okay. For a few days after that I smelled her perfume throughout the house.

I haven't had a dream of her coming to me anymore, except that one. But it is one I will treasure forever.

Beautiful story, Brandilyn. Thank you so much for sharing it. After my father died, I had a "dream" of him coming to tell me that the sinner's prayer I wrote to him to say had worked. I was terribly frightened from the image of him just out and above me, and he sensed that and said he would not come again. I have held onto that memory to reassure me he was not lost. Oh, the mysteries of those things that are beyond our knowledge! Praise God for His great love and mercy.

I lost My Mom on 4th April Morning around 5. 45.while she was on bed .

I would want The Lord to let Me see her as Young n At Solace with Him .I would like her to speak to Me saying I am alright here with The Lord . I m distressed I am feeling guilty that perhaps she could have lived more time n years if I took a serious focus on her seemingly never so major ailment n cared with more agility .

It makes Me in great dilemma n vexation why The Lord allowed it this way ..It was Yesterday n Today its Easter ..Is there any connection of her death n Jesus' Death n Resurrection, days through week end n beginning ?

Did God willed it on this occasion to have her as a Chosen one ? She had a vision at her 23 years n in 1983 about A Great Light n Jesus beckoning her with His eyes ..She was not in Religion of Christianity ..Her faith was in Christ as she was called back ..

O Death, Where is Thy Sting ?
O Grave Where is Thy Victory ?

With a contrite heart n vexed spirit I await The Lord to give Me an answer along with her by the side that everything is Fine n I can do the best things for her as she wants in The Lord n for my dad n sister who are in Eternal Abode ..

Raj, it's amazing to hear how Christ showed Himself to your mom when she wasn't even a Christian. Knowing that she died while having faith in Christ, you can be encouraged that she is in heaven--and is well taken care of in Christ's arms.

I still cannot grasp that she's gone, I have 5 sisters and all got to see her after her death, I must say she looked so peaceful, my gosh we miss her. My dad married to her for 58 years is lost.

To Shari and Brandilyn, I lost my mom and dad, and my ex-husband (first and father of my sons) within months of each other. It was probably a year before the veil of sadness and grief lifted just a bit. Everyone is different, right? However, I write this note only to say be patient with yourself. Try to remember all the good things and believe they are with Him. May God bless and comfort you in your grief.

Precious Shari, The Lord knows All things, and with Jesus in your heart, you have the Holy Spirit living in you who comforts, and leads you to know all truth. Ask the Lord to show you by His Spirit the question you have. He will supernaturally work in your life and in His immeasurable ways to confirm that in your heart. Also know, His peace which only He gives surpasses all our finite understanding. He is a loving Father and He will not withhold what you ask in faith. Talk to Him, be specific..even though He already knows our thoughts, His greatest desire is for us to trust Him, believe in, and receive His beloved Son Jesus as our Savior.
Trust me, God has no limits and nothing is impossible for Our God to do. I have a similar story, that I may share when my only brother passed. I have an actual picture of the angels carrying him to heaven which includes Abraham smiling to welcome him to the gates of heaven and God produced a double rainbow that morning. I thought I was taking pictures of the most beautiful ominous rainbow, but later that day looking at the photos was my brother, larger than life, held by the huge angel.
My brother had lived a life apart from the Lord, just days before he passed, he did accept Jesus in his heart. Long story later, but rest assured that God made sure I saw what I needed to see, and the Rainbow? Is a sign of Gods eternal covenant, all this took place inside the rainbow.
Ask , listen for His voice, not necessarily audibly, but by perhaps an angel, or dream, vision, you don't have to figure it out, just leave it to the Lord. God bless you

I lost my mom two weeks ago, and it has been a very painful process with a lot of questions. My mom was a Christian and so am I. She actually brought me to christ at 18 and I am now 31. She died peacefully with no fear. She was sick for a long time and I had prepared myself for the day, but it hit me like a ton of bricks. The next day as I lay down, I saw her face: she was in her thirties and gorgeous! I have had many dreams of her too. A couple of days ago my sister saw her too, and she looked just liked I described her, but one thing I did not mention to her was a flower in her hair. My sister told me she saw that and it gave me joy! I miss her dearly. God makes us grieve to heal, and I know that. I have been thinking about heaven a lot, I want to know she is ok. Thank you for sharing your testimony. It helped my heart.

My heart goes out to you with the greatest empathy and the Love of Jesus in my heart. You are not alone ever...in fact you are surrounded by the angels of the Lord. She is more than ok, in fact she's been smiling and dancing in the company of Jesus. I don't know why I said ,dancing, but it came up in my heart. We haven't lost our loved ones, because we know where they are!!
This world is not as real as heaven is, not by any means. All that we see? Was created by what is not seen. God spoke all creation into the physical ( what is seen) I know our love ones have the purest form of love in heaven, they actually love us more perfectly now, because they have now seen perfected love, the moment they saw Jesus!! There is no distance or time that can ever separate us from the love we have for each other. I look at 1John4:17 As He is..so are we in this world. Now, can you imagine with that being said that God would give our love ones in heaven? Any less? No, that would be anything but His love and grace toward us here on the earth as well as our love ones in heaven. They haven't changed their feelings for us, their laugh, their character and all that makes them who they were here? Is still who they are there. The only thing different? They are younger and from my biblical understanding as well as seeing my love ones, they are young like 33 ,and will forever, eternally stay young. I lost a baby girl from a car accident in my 2nd trimester, but babies ( no matter what stage of growth in the womb, it's a human life at the split second of conception) babies that die on this earth go back to heaven, and they continue to grow up in heaven, and if you have love ones there, they nuture and care for them along with the angels. As they grow and learn the oracles of God, they also know their earthly mother and dad. They anticipate the day their mother , dad will embrace them and they are praying for us as well. I'm here to tell you that I've seen my daughter , Maybell Anne, she is now 31 in heaven, and I've seen her hanging on to my dad's arm, all smiles and beautiful. These were in visions . Just know our loving heavenly Father longs to have a personal relationship with you, He longs to share so many things with you. After Father God allowed His own Precious Beloved Son Jesus to die in our place, take the punishment for our sin, enduring the scourging of the 39 stripes His Beloved Son took for our healing of every sickness and disease,to be stripped of His clothes and dignity, to endure the piercing of the crown of thorns, for the chastisement of our peace and to have a sound mind. Every aspect of what Jesus lovingly endured , could you allow your child to go through this? This is how much God loves the whole world, This is how much Jesus loves every person. Even the movie " The Passion " by Mel Gibson as hard as it was to watch through the tears , I doubt it was even close to the actual horrible details of the crucifixion. So..what would our Lord withhold or deny us after giving Us His own Precious beloved Son Jesus?
Absolutely nothing !!
God doesn't take our love ones, or cause sickness, diseases, accidents, earthquakes, tidal waves or anything else that is of death. Jesus came to take what we deserved to give us what He deserves . Jesus said, It is Finished" at the cross. He rose from the grave on the 3rd day, and He ascended after 40 days alive and well straight up into the clouds as many, many watched and He is seated at the Fathers right hand in All His Glory, we are also seated in Christ Jesus, with His Authority, His living unchanging word full of power over All the enemy Luke 10:19, we have the same power as a born again , blood bought believer as Jesus to heal the sick, speak His word , His promises to the problems that come and your problems will go!
All the bad things that happen comes from satan! If your love one is a believer and has confessed Jesus as Lord?
They were received lovingly into the arms of Jesus.
Not all Christians understand or Just were not taught that healing belongs to them, it's part of your salvation, just like protection, deliverance, God's favor, His Grace to provide everything you need .
My dad received Jesus as Lord, but great fear gripped him with the diagnosis of lung cancer, and no matter how many healing Scriptures were boldly confessed over him, hands were laid on him by many that anointed him with oil, he believed in devine healing, but fear and the doctors report was his focus, bless his heart and like so many without a renewed mind or boldly determining that God would heal him and he would recover, he made his own personal choice to not fight the good fight of faith, and receive His healing. Sometimes it's a person's choice and they just want to go be with the Lord, and most of the time it's unbelief or lack of knowing what the word says. Some people get mad when they hear this, but God has completely exceeded everything we need to live and have life, and have it abundantly through Jesus and His precious sacrifice. It is up to us to take it, its up to us to receive it and not doubt or waver. Meaning, don't say, I have cancer, sign for the package, own it, and then turn right around and profess that you're healed in the name of Jesus.
It's one or the other. God cannot answer a prayer for something He has already done!
I'm dealing with a family right now that has a 9 yr old little girl that the doctors have given no hope for recovery from brain tumor. Yes, they are Christians, but instead of planning for her funeral, they should be confessing healing over her. There are many Scriptures on healing such as by His stripes we are healed peter2:24, He sent His word and delivers us out of all our destruction. If you believe it in your heart...Speak to the problem, sickness by the word of God which is mighty and sharper than any two edged sword, what you see, hear, feel from the 5 senses are a temporal fact that is subject to change when you stand on the truth.
Facts change, truth can change any fact, but no fact can change The TRUTH.
Again, I have lost my dad, my only brother, my husband, all in heaven, praise God!!
But they didn't have to go, they didn't know they could have fed their faith , and starved the fears. God didn't say, well your numbers up, time to leave.
No. Through Jesus and His New Covenant from which Grace and Truth came, we who believe upon Jesus have been redeemed from all the curses under the law.
I believe Jesus is at the brink of returning to snatch us out of here. Called the rapture. Our loving Father will send Jesus and we'll be out of here in a split second before the tribulation. And it's already cooking and lining up for such a time. Be ready, meaning, if you don't know Jesus?
Don't wait..the only thing you'll miss..is hell, and hell on earth as well. If people only knew how much God loves them, and because it has to be a choice you make, otherwise that wouldn't be love, I wouldn't take the chance of falling asleep knowing that you haven't made that decision to accept Jesus as Lord, He is the only way to heaven, to see your love ones that received Jesus before they left the earth, to know you will with them eternally in heaven, because your last breath here? Will be followed by your next breath in the eternity you get to choose here only. There are no gray areas, it's heaven or its hell.
I apologize to all here for getting off the original subject, but there are so many people who have been greatly blinded by satan, and have rejected the Son of God, the forgiveness of sin and by their own choice will be among many that will be in Hell .
I don't want to see anyone go there, and I'm sure my brothers and sisters in Christ feel the same urgency to warn as many as possible to ask Jesus to come into your heart, forgive me of all sin and I believe you died for me, paid my sin debt and for rejecting you, I believe you rose from the dead on the 3rd day,ascended into heaven and you now sit at God's right hand as my King and My Lord from this moment forward, I am a child of God, my name was just written in the Lambs book of Life for All eternity, and All of heaven is rejoicing because I have been made the righteousness of God, by Christ Jesus Amen!

I am so glad that I found this. I have been searching for a story like this for almost a year. I lost my 87 year old father February 28, 2014. I was the only family member at his bedside (along with his nurse). As soon as he took his last breath, I saw him. It was a clear vision of him as a much younger man, with a huge smile. The vision quickly vanished. But, I knew at that moment that he was okay! When I tell people what I experienced, I feel as though no one believes me. This has been a tough week for me since it is coming up on the first anniversary of his passing. Reading your story had me in tears. I'm glad you were able to experience that same comfort of seeing your mother young, healthy and happy!

I enjoyed reading your story about your mother. I had a similar experience. I was with my mother in hospice for 1 week. I wanted to spend every minute with her. My brothers & sisters also visited. But I stayed there w/her. After a week, my family decided that we all are going to leave. So I wasn't there for the remaining 2 days. I had to pick up some things from her room at her nursing home. It was on a Tuesday morning......I was still in bed. I don't remember if I was sleeping or awake, but my eyes were closed. At that moment b4 I opened my eyes, i received a vision of my mother opening her eyes. When I went to see her at the hospice, her eyes were exactly as I had envisioned. I believe she was sending me a message, saying goodbye.

When my mother passed I felt a presence in the room other than my sister and husband, and children. Someone was there that I could not see guiding her to heaven and Jesus' feet. That night as I lay in bed on my stomach with heels of my feet pointing up one of my heels suddenly felt extremely cold. The other very warm. I knew my mother was at the foot of my bed touching my foot one last time. I had no doubt. God is so good He gives us that last moment.

That was lovely to read. I had a dream of visiting my mom in heaven.. impossible for the living.. but not for God to arrange, so I believe that I actually did go there to say goodbye to my mom who passed away alone. When I was there in Heaven, a man escorted me through tight security, of which I had to remove many many coats before being let through. I did not look at the man but heard his voice next to me reply 'this is how it is here' when I said it felt like I was visiting the Queen. When I gotto my mom and said what I needed to say, I was quickly pulled back to my body and cried out 'nooo' then woke up in a fit of tears. Later when I told a friend of mine about it, he said it was Jesus escorting me there but I wasnt to know that at the time so I never looked at him...I also never heard my mom's reply but knew it was her. I was only allowed to say what I said, thats all. God knows what he's doing, if it were more, if it were more it might have been too hard on me. :)

Thanks very much for sharing your vision with us. This vision of yours really brings a lot of comfort to me, too. I will pray that I will get visions of my mum, too and hopefully, soon! Here, I would really like to know if anyone out there has had the same experience as I did. I am a Christian and did not know and would not have believed this 40 day-visitation of the soul until my mum passed away in December last year. The first week or during the 9 days after her passing, there were signs that she came to visit me by unmistakable smells and fragrance. The first one was the unmistakable smell of my mother with her skin moisturizer; the second one was the same smell plus fragrance of a flower which I did not really know what kind of flower it was. The third time which lasted the longest, about 6 to 8 seconds was totally the fragrance of the flower which was a strong fragrance. The next day I went to my friend's house and his friend who was staying with him got to know about this and went to my friend's garden and brought back some flowers which is JASMINE and it was exactly 100% the fragrance I experienced the night before. After that, I am a total believer in this 40 day-visitation. My church actually forbids us to believe in all this and told us that the soul sleeps after death until resurrection day but now I Know this is not true - the soul does visit their loved-ones and give signs to try to comfort them. I am comforted by the signs but I am still in great agony because the loss is real in a physical sense where I could not see her physically anymore and I do not have the chance anymore to care for her, cook for her, wash her laundry, buy her favourite foods, etc.. And now that she is gone, I only realized that it was a privilege and enjoyment to serve her while she was alive because we enjoyed talking to each other very much and she was always there for me no matter what! And I will always remember that My Mother is the only person in the world that truly loves me unconditionally.

I'm so sorry for your mom's passing, Brandilynn. I know you miss her very much. And,yes, she is young and healthy once more. I saw my father at his funeral service. He was once again young and smiling as I remembered him many years earlier. I'm the firstborn. With one hand looped through Jesus' arm, he waved at me. God is so merciful, comforting you as he did, and me too. The difference being, my papa passed away twenty years ago in April.

And I do remember your dear mom from the earlier ACFW (ACRW) conferences. Lovely, spirited woman of God.

I'd like to add my humble confirmation to the reality of your experience with your Mother. My Mother and I were alone when I was born in an unused chicken coop during WPA days. She and I had talked about it being just the two of us, and I had prayed many times as her time came to leave her earthly existence behind: "Lord, let it be just the two of us when she leaves." The nurse had tended to her needs and was back at the nurses' station when I leaned over Mother and told her it was okay for to leave if that's what she wanted to do. With that, she drew in a deep breath. What happened next causes me to look forward to my turn to go! Her eyes opened wide, her mouth took on the shape of a young child who had just unwrapped a much-hoped-for Christmas gift, and she uttered a single word. "OH!!!" as though she had seen something cherished and longed-for. She never breathed out, and she was gone. What did she see that caused such a wonderful reaction? I wait patiently for the answer to my question.

Too many experiences to list here, except these two: first, my infant son appeared to me twice in the months after his one day on earth, standing beside me in a form that I can only describe as spiritually mature. A beautiful young man who I was allowed to see as he would have looked in the flesh of our humanity, smiling a beautiful smile which said many things to me. Hello, Mother! I am well. I love you. Second, A man who had lived a sinful life and had caused life-long damage to many people appeared twice to me after his death, both times saying the same thing - "I know. I know." The interpretation was clear to me. He had learned after death what he did not know in this life.

God is so good to allow us a fleeting glimpse of His realm through these dreams and visions he sends to us. Thank you for sharing your wonderful experiences with us, and providing space for others to share theirs. Thank You, Jesus. Glory be to God our Father. Amen.

What amazing stories, Margaret. I'm hearing more and more of these. God does use these visions to comfort us here on earth--and to give us a glimpse of the glory we await. He's a terrific God!

Oh Brandilyn, I can't believe how similar our experiences when losing our mothers. My mom also died while I was in an airplane from Montana to California. When I got there she had been put on life support and never woke up, although her heart was still beating. I cried so hard when I read your story. Since you are one of the few people who have a copy of my book A Higher Plane - you can read so many appearances experiences in that last chapter. I love you sweetie. God bless you.

God gave me a vision of two of my grandchildren as young adults in His service. But they did not live to be adults. They went home early in a tragic event. But I still see them - fully formed - young adults - praising the Lord. It is difficult to explain how God lets us glimpse the future in eternity, but He does. It is a great comfort to me. I'm so glad He gave you the vision of your mother as she was leaving for home.

Hi Brandilyn, I know I've already commented, but a few hours after reading your experience a thought was brought to mind. The refrain "His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me" ran through my mind and gave me goosebumps. The fluttering wing sound you heard could have been any number of things, but it reminded me of the scripture in Luke 12 that reminds us that "Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows."

God does not forget or miss even the smallest of details. He knows all, sees all, and longs to show us how much value we are to Him.

The sound may very well symbolize something else, but I appreciated the reminder that came with that prompt tonight and I hope it blesses you as well.

Brandilyn...I was truly touched by this vision. You are such a biblical person and I am totally on the same page with you. God gave you a glimpse of Mom because that was His way of giving you closure. Working at hospice, however, I hear bits and pieces from family members who have disclosed their dying loved ones visions of seeing other people in their room when to anyone else, no one was there. I think Mom actually came to you... I believe God allowed you to see her as He sees her. What a blessing for you. You are so good with words and God gifted you with that talent. Your Mom was good and loving you and wanting to fulfill your wish. Bless you again... Nona

Thank you for sharing your testimony, Brandilyn, it was very moving. I'm sorry for your loss, but your experience reminds me of testimony I had when my Dad passed a few years ago. God was so good to give us many assurances. One being, that the night he passed as I was drifting to sleep, I felt my dad holding my hand. He did that when he prayed for me. It was very comforting. I was also given a dream of my dad that also was an answer to prayer for my mom. I posted the testimony on my blog if you'd like to read the testimony. God Bless! http://projectinga.blogspot.com/2011/12/answers-from-heaven.html.

Brandilyn, Thank you for telling us about your vision. God often gives us dreams, visions and other people to encourage, comfort, and strengthen our faith. Your vision has strengthened my faith. I just turned 65 and my mother is almost 85 and poor in health. I hate the thoughts of losing another parent. My dad died 14 years ago and I had a terrible time adjusting to his sudden death. I have been a born again Christian for 52 years and my faith in Christ is strong. But sometimes grief overwhelms me when I think how Dad died and about losing Mom. Thank you for reminding me that we will see our love ones again and this life is not all there is. I'm praying that God comforts you and your family. Maranatha.

Just read your heavenly blessing from our Lord to ease your heart about not being there for her entering heaven. I had a similar experience when my husband passed away at age 47. He was in the hospital recuperating from surgery when I got up to one morning to get ready to go to the hospital to see him. I crawled out of bed and just stood at the closet and felt such a euphoria that I crawled back into bed and all I could say for several minutes was "I feel so good, I feel so good." Euphoria is the closest word I have to try to explain the feeling I was experiencing. This went on for about 15 minutes and then the phone rang. It was the hospital calling telling me to come right away. As soon as I got there, what I suspected was true. My husband had gone to be with Jesus. I knew at his young age God wouldn't take him, and Satan couldn't take him so the only thing left was that He chose to go. How could I be angry with one I loved seeing the face of our Lord and not want to stay here but go to Him. I was so sad that I wasn't there to be with him as he was ushered into eternity but God spoke to my heart and told me that what I had experienced in those euphoric minutes was my covenant partner entering glory! How precious this is to me. I also have heard of people seeing loved ones in heaven and they are young once again. Our Lord, Jesus left this earth at age 33 and I feel that that is probably about the age we will be in heaven. God is good! All the time!!!!!

What a beautiful, touching story. It blessed me more than you will ever know. My father died Nov 9, 1979. I didn't become a born again believer until May 9, 1980. After I did, I wondered about my dad and if he knew the Lord. I remembered my cousins saying he'd gotten saved. At the time I wasn't a Christian so I wondered...saved from what? They were all smiles at his funeral and I wanted to slap them. After all, him being dead was nothing to smile at. I cried out and asked God to please tell me if he was in heaven. I was a baby Christian, still had my Pampers on, and knew nothing of visions, but I had one. I saw my dad standing in front of the casket with is arms and legs crossed. He had his short sleeves rolled up like he always did, but he wasn't the poor pathetic man I'd visited two weeks before he died of throat cancer. The man I saw was the young, handsome version of my dad. His hair was the beautiful blue-black it was before he took sick and he was the epitomy of health. The words, "Your father isn't in that coffin. He isn't dead. He's very much alive, and that is how he looks now." I burst out crying, and joy unlike any I've ever experienced washed over me. So thank you for sharing your story, Brandilyn. It reminded me of the vision God gave to a baby Christian who needed to know the truth.

Perhaps some do and some don't. Anyway, praying for you and the family as you gather and sort and remember.

How wonderful! I am so happy for you to have that vision of your mother to hang onto. She has been an extraordinary lady for Christ all those years and I'm sure He was thrilled to perform that last miracle of the visit to her baby daughter!!! Your heart will ache but I pray the joy of her heavenly confirmation will thrill you for the rest of your life. I lost my mother when I was a teen (I'm 61 now) and the loss and yearning is still there but the joy of reuniting with her and with our LORD JESUS CHRIST is so marvelous that it surpasses all else. I'm praying for all of you girls (I've known Sandy personally since the family has been in Vassar) and I thank God for your mom. What a lasting tribute all you daughters are making every day. God Bless You warmly and carry you through the hard grieving days. Today is Easter and we have the glorious hope to meet once again! Alleluia!!!!

Oh, I, too, had a request when my brother was dying (this past November). I didn't want him to be alone. I went for hours without sleep. Not too long before he passed, he called out, "There's my mommy." He was 57, and I hadn't heard him address Mom like that since we were children. I realized then that I had worried for naught. He wasn't alone at all.

God bless you.

I'm so sorry for your loss, I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I read your post with tears in my eyes. Your story hit pretty close to home for me. I haven't lost my mother but I lost my 17 yr old daughter in 2007. A few hours prior to my daughter passing away, she awoke and told us that she saw angels all around the room and that they were waiting to take her to Heaven. I do believe that the Lord sent those angels to her to escort her to Heaven. Several months after losing her I became very ill and was only given a 20% chance to survive. It was at a critical point in that illness that my daughter appeared to me, she was so warm and truly appeared like she looked prior to having the cancer. She wanted to give me a "butterfly kiss" which was something special she and I had always shared since she was itty bitty. She gave me the kiss, gently fluttering her eyelashes on my cheek and then she told me I was going to be OK. I found out later from the doctor, who also happened to be a very strong Christian that it was at that moment I turned the corner and they then knew I would survive. I had been unconscious for a couple of weeks at that time and I remained that way for roughly another 10 days. I didn't know the whole story of course until I was sharing with my doctor about seeing my daughter, that was when the doctor filled in the rest of the story for me. God is so good!
I'm so glad that God gave you that wonderful gift of seeing your mom in that vision. Hang on to that in the coming days when you are feeling overwhelmed. Again, I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Your mama was gorgeous! Much,much better looking than Loretta Young. I am serious. She has a look of total joy on her face. I am so glad God gave you this vision. I watched my mama die and I just can't seem to get that sight out of my mind. She was in such bad shape and I didn't want to remember her that way.

But your post has ministered to me in this regard. I always pictured Mama peering over the gate of Heaven watching for me and my brother. She looked the age she was at death. Now, after reading this, I am going to see her looking young!

Thank you so much for writing this. It was a blessing to me. I am so sorry for your loss. My mama has been gone for 3 years. The world just doesn't seem the same without a mama. My cousin did a dvd slide show of Mama's life with 4 beautiful songs, two of which Mama used to sing in church and that is a huge blessing.

Thanks again for sharing your heart. I am praying for you family.

I read this last night, and read it again this morning. What a beautiful gift, for you to see "beyond" at just the right time.

Seeing her over the years at the ACFW conference was always a highlight for me -- the pictures of her parasailing on her birthday (I can't remember which one), hearing her stories of her years in India. :) Well done, Mama Ruth. Well done.

What a precious gift God gave you! I, too, had said goodbye to my mother a few weeks before she slipped into the arms of Jesus, and I wasn't with her at the time. And I, too, berated myself for thinking I "had time." But God orchestrates the graduation of His saints on His timetable, and I realize I was where I was supposed to be at that time, just as you were. God gave you an experience more precious than gold.

How beautiful, Brandilyn. And thank you. Many of us have either recently lost our parents or (as in my case) know these are their last days. Your conversations with your mother were so smart, loving, and wonderful. I know now what I want to tell my parents while I have the chance. God bless you as you go through your mother's memorial service and the practical efforts of closing up her apartment. What a treasure you have forever in that vision.

Thank you for sharing this experience. I had a dream about my dad a few months before he passed, he looked the way I remembered him when I was a young child. I believe it was God showing me how he would be healed when he went home to heaven. I have also experience hearing angels wings, one morning at prayer before service at our church, I heard a loud rustling noise behind me twice, each time I turned to see what was there as the church was almost empty besides me there were only 3 others praying. I saw nothing behind me but I felt The Lord telling me there were angels with us as we prayed.

This reminds me that it will take more than one lifetime to peel back the layers of how God works, and His great mercy and mystery. To think He cares for us individually is a marvel, and now, in a tangible way, He has shown you how much He cares for you. Thank you for sharing your gift of words to tell us this story. I hope it was healing for you.

What a wonderful gift you were given, Brandilyn. When my dad died I had been for years saying, as a prayer Isaiah 40:31 asking God to heal my dad as he battled cancer. but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint

My dad truly was one who's hope was in the Lord. It took about a year but...my dad loved baseball and he'd played in college and on a town team and he'd played it a LOT with his eight children.
About a year after he died I had this vision of my dad, young, going up for a high fly ball and catching it and coming down with it, laughing.
My dad had the best laugh.
And that verse came to me along with that vision.
I didn't get the healing I'd prayed for....in this life. But Dad had been lifted up. He'd found a place he could run and not get weary, walk and not faint. My dad young and healthy in heaven. I don't think of it as a vision in the miraculous sense, just a blessing that God gave me.
Maybe the fluttering you heard was eagles wings.

Brandilyn, I am so pleased that I had the privilege to meet your mom and speak with her a few years back at the ACFW conference. In just a few minutes of conversing with her, I am truly convinced that Heaven became a sweeter place on Thursday. Praying for peace for you and your family, Rob Roush

Brandylynn, this truly touches my heart. I did not have the privilege of knowing your mother, but I know what it is to lose a mother. My mother went to be with the Lord many years ago and sometimes I still think of calling her to share some exciting thing that is happening in our family. I will miss her forever, for no one can ever take the place of a Christian mother. I will pray for your family as you rest in the peace that only God can give. May your wonderful memories hold you all close until you see her again. In His love, Ann Knowles

What an extraordinary moment for you, and such a gift. Heaven's gain has been transformed into yours as well, even though it feels like such a loss. Mama Ruth was amazing--I'm glad to have met even the few times that I did. Peace and comfort to you!

Thank you for sharing this precious experience. It reminds me that we are surrounded by that great cloud of witnesses - believers who have gone on before us. Some of them are our loved ones; and then of course there is Abraham, and Moses, the Apostle Paul, etc... When my mom passed away (also from heart failure) more than ten years ago, the hospice nurse and caregiver related the details of her passing to me. I didn't get there in time, but just a few minutes after she left here. She had spent the morning talking aloud to her mother and her grandmother and even told them she would go with them at 12:30. At at 12:30 she looked into the corner of the room and said, "Wow. Look at those beautiful angels." And that was her last breath this side of heaven. The Lord is so good to give us these comforts and glimpses of our sweet forever with Him. God bless you and your loved ones.

Brandilyn, I had to stop reading right before the last 2 paragraphs (I'll go back in a moment) because of the happy tears you just brought to my eyes. I'm so sorry for your mom's passing. I know what a joy & blessing she's been to you & the ACFW family. I think I choked up too because today would have been my mother's 72nd birthday. She wasn't a Christian when she died, but I've prayed that she is now and that she's happy with God who loves her and has freed her of her emotional anguish. Quite a few people who have had died but been medically brought back to life say that all are young and without pain. What comfort! And I think that your mom's journey to be beside God coinciding with the Easter holiday cannot be a mere coincidence.

Thank you for sharing, Brandilyn, and to others prompted to share their stories. This encourages us all in our faith. This weekend, praising God for the gift of salvation, life with God here and in heaven, we hold to the knowledge that there is a heaven and we, the children of God, will be with him and our loved ones. At the same time, we are called ever more strongly to pray for those who have not yet accepted the gift of eternal salvation with God. We earnestly desire for them to all be with us.

Thank you so much for sharing. The deaths of my parents was so beautiful and encouraging. When my dad died I pictured him flying to greet Mom who had proceeded him and they looked the age when they married. But it was a vague thing, not a vision like you had. It was the first time I had considered they were young again, in heaven. At the age of Adam and Eve at their creation? A beautiful perspective. Thanks for confirming it.

Brandilynn, what a blessing you were given. And the privilege of sharing with so many. It gives me courage to share the wonder I experienced when my father passed. I was in anothed state, quier and alone in tbe middle of tbe night when I fdlt my father's presence beside me, as real as anything. I was filled with wonder and joy. I said "It is alright to go. Thank you for coming to see me." I noted the time, in thd middle of the night and later learned that is when he passed. It is a precious gift that gives me peace that I too will be alive with him when I pass from this life.
