I was dreaming in that place between sleep and awake, where I still remember dreams and where I always communicate with Patricia. What a beautiful dream! It was like a vision of Heaven and the place Patricia is preparing for us.
Even though I could hear this morning’s rain outside the window, it was a sunny beautiful day in my dream. I was in a garden packed with lilacs in full bloom off in the distance was a Victorian farm house. I’ve never seen lilac bushes so fully packed with blooms. The scene was like the Lilac Dell in the Royal Ontario Botanical Gardens but much closer together bushes and much fuller blooms.
Though a gap I saw Patricia and I standing in front of our parents who were welcoming us. Our parents were not really in focus and soon vanished from the scene as did the brick farm house. Pat and I were glowing and she was beautiful, wearing that lilac blue sweater with the white doves on it she so loved. I was also kind of handsome. We looked as we did in our early 30ths but more mature and radiant. We nuzzled the lilacs and moved closer together. Then we kissed.
That kiss exploded through my soul! It filled my whole body right to the toes and finger tips. It was both intense and passionate but somehow very gentle. I felt our LOVE had somehow enveloped us more fully and made us more ONE. I also felt great peace and calm. Yes, it was like the Peace that passeth all understanding was dwelling in us.
I somehow knew that garden was ours. Pat had prepared it for us, we were joined and meant to live in this garden. It was our mansion in the Kingdom of Heaven that Christ had promised. I was so happy and wanted to stay there with Pat forever. The green, the light blue lilacs, the warmth, the sunlight, and Pat – it was much more than I could ever have imagined.
The dream, Pat, the Peace – I did not want to wake up. Now that was a beautiful dream. Thank you dream master for it.

Know it well, love was his meaning.

What did he reveal to you?
Why does he reveal it to you?
Remain in this and you will know more of the same.
Rest assured. All will be well. All manner of things shall be well.”
