I dreamed that I was in a very large gathering of many people. And we had all brought large square patches to put in a quilt that would represent our present life. And I saw an angel that sat at a large table who was sewing those quilt patches together to make a huge quilt. We all put our patches in a large pile, and as the angel took the patches to sew, I noticed that my patch looked ragged and empty and it was filled with large holes that represented the difficult challenges and temptations that I had endured in the past. I turned and looked around and I did not see the patches of others that looked so ugly. They only had tiny holes and they had bright rich colors that represented their world fortunes and success. I felt disheartened, I knew the angel would sew my ragged patch with the beautiful ones of others and it would look thread bare and empty.Then the time came when each person had to present their patch to represent their past life.The others rose and held their patches to the light to show what their life had been. Some were beautiful and held with pride. Then the angel turned to me and motioned for me to rise. My gaze dropped to the ground in shame. The others had shown many earthly fortunes, but mine had only a red heart labeled LOVE and happiness. It also showed trials of illness and lack of wealth and the many temptations, and false accusations that I had endured. I realized anew how often I wanted to quit, but sincere prayer had always asked the LORD for help; which came every time. But now I had to face the truth, this was my life and I had to accept it like my patch was showing it. Then an awe grasped me as I looked around at the others and saw them staring at me with widened eyes. I looked again at my patch the angel was beginning to sew. It began to light up and those ugly holes were flooded with light and they were creating an image of the face of Christ. And in the dream that became a trance the LORD was standing beside me in warmth of love and words began to appear on my patch that read, (EACH POINT OF LIGHT IN YOUR LIFE IS WHEN YOU STEPPED ASIDE AND LET ME SHINE THROUGH UNTIL THERE WAS MORE OF ME THAN THERE WAS OF YOU). So let me say that if you think your life is threadbare and worn, be sure you let CHRIST shine through you. I am realizing this can never mean as much to others as it does to me because my mother made lots of quilts and the entire family helped including the boys. All except Dad.
