I had a dream it was my birthday and I was doing my Random Acts of Kindness with my friend. I was at the store and helped an elderly lady put her groceries in the car (because it was December, cold, and raining). She was more than happy to let us help but insisted to give us twenty dollars as payment. I kindly explained to her my Random Acts of Kindness tradition where I do “X” number amount of kind deeds, depending on how old I turn that year (which was 22 in the dream) she said well, “if you won’t accept then I will just drop it on the ground, and finders keepers goes into play. Then you can use it on your quest and can bless others.” She then got in her car and drove away.
So my friend and I picked up the money and went to get some dinner. While there we saw an adorable elderly couple. They were holding hands as they ate their food. Something just drew my attention to them so I asked our waitress to use the $20 to cover their meal and to keep whatever was left over. She cheerfully took the money and told the couple about the anonymous payment. He shared with the waitress what a blessing it was, as they were celebrating his wife’s 82nd birthday that very evening.
As they were walking out, the husband came over to us (not knowing it was us who picked up their tab) and blessed us. Saying “God has been laying this on my heart to tell y’all this. I don’t know what it means, but I have learned over the years, when God tells you to do something, you just do it, no questions asked. So God wanted me to tell y’all to continue doing you’re good works. Continue to grow closer to Him and you will grow closer together along the way” Then he turned to walk away, only to turn back around and look me in the eyes and simply said “Yes.” and went back to his wife and they left the restaurant.
My friend and I looked at each other in total amazement. Then our waitress returned… but this time it was different one. She said “Oh, I’m sorry I missed y’all. But I see someone got you’re drinks already.” I told her how Mary Beth had taken our orders. She looked at me confusedly and said, “… We don’t have a Mary Beth that works here.” We went on to describe the waitress and she replied, “There is no one here who fits that description.”
We explained to her about how the waitress got our drinks and we also told her about the elderly couple sitting at the back corner booth. The lady then replied saying that she had been working for the past four hours and no one has even sat at that booth all day.
By this point, the lady thought we were crazy, took our food orders, and quickly walked away. My date and I were trying to process what just happened. Then we came to the crazy conclusion that the waitress Mary was actually an angel. And that the elderly couple we saw was actually US in the future. God placed them there to guide us and help us see we were on the right track. And the “Yes” was answering a question I have been asking God for a long time now.
So yeah… that was my crazy dream….
What do you do when you have dreams like this? haha Do you share it with those involved? lol… awkward… but seriously?
