Jesus Smiled At Me

On October 31 of 2000 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was so scared. I didn't want to die, the first things I thought about were my children and Grand children.

At one time I told Jesus that when my time came I wouldn't be afraid if he was there with me. I prayed to God to please see me through this. The day before my surgery I called the Pastor at my church and told him I was going into surgery. I was at work at the Time. He told me to be at the Church at 2 pm. He gave me confession and communion and the anointing of the oils. It made Me feel a lot calmer.

The next day I went into surgery. I guess it took about 2 hours and after a while I was released. Still in a lot of pain. That night I was in so much pain, I thought I hope I'll be able to sleep. While I was asleep I dreamed I was seated in this large area. There were people all around but not next to me. They seemed to me that they were waiting for something. I couldn't see any of their faces. They all had their heads turned.

Then I looked in front of me. There was a man sitting in a chair just looking at me. It wasn't that he was looking at me, it was the WAY that he was looking at me. It was like a side smile as if to say well finally we meet or well here I am. He had shoulder length hair and he was very handsome. He was sitting in a large chair made of wood with large arm rest. He said nothing, just kept that smile on his face and I was speechless.

The next morning I woke up and I never felt so good. I had forgotten I had surgery, but when I started to get up I remembered. Then I remembered the dream. Even now 9 months later I still try to think of what that smile meant.
