*Remembering Joey group at Facebook has a section called "Dreams". I got this post of Karen from there. This was posted on August 25, 2008:
I finally had my first dream about Joey, early yesterday morning. I dreamed he was in our house and he was hugging me by the entry table. Joe and his two sisters were there, too, just busy around the house. I could hear him talking while he was hugging me and feel his voice resonating in his chest. I told him, "I am trying to memorize the sound of your voice and your laugh, so I have it when you leave". He just smiled at that and chuckled a bit.
I woke up so happy...like I had just actually been with him. I hope I have another dream about him soon.
This post reminds me of another dream story called "Footprints In The Sand". There's a video created inspired by it and I am posting it here for Karen and Joe:
I dreamed I was walking
along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life.
This really bothered me and
I questioned the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you would walk with me all the way,
but I have noticed that during
the most troublesome times in my life
there is only one set of footprints.
"I don't understand why in times
when I needed you most,
you should leave me."
The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never, never leave you
during your times of trial and suffering.
"When you saw only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."
