I Dreamt Of My Father-In-Law

I don't know why I get vivid dreams of people who are close to me and it pains me that I don't know if I should give meaning to the dream or to just brush it off. I always dream of people either they are in a coffin or I am mourning for them or they are in the hospital and recuperating.

My dream about my father-in-law just took place in the morning before I woke up. It was so clear, so colored and yet very confusing to me. The dream has parallel connections to reality because my father-in-law is already being supported by a full face respirator which is helping him to breathe properly. He already had a cardiac arrest last Thursday after being in coma for the past few weeks.

I know he is not well. The doctors already informed the family back home but in my dream, he got better. He woke up from his coma, I was standing there and he even asked where he was and why was he there. And then I woke up.

I called my husband who flew to Manila last Thursday who was there in the hospital with my mom-in-law and just making sure that my father-in-law is not alone. I spoke to my husband and told him about the dream. I asked to speak to my mom-in-law and also told her about the dream. My mom-in-law said that my father-in-law might be saying goodbye in my dream. The doctors already informed them that the machine is the only thing that is prolonging his life. So, I asked her if she can put the phone next to my father-in-law's ear just so I can thank him for all the good things that he has done for his family and us. I told him that we love him.

My mother-in-law said that my father-in-law had tears in his eyes. And it only meant that he heard me. I still have the burning hope in me that he will come out of this. I am praying for that miracle to happen if the Lord will allow it.

All of these reminds me of the pain and anguish I had felt when my dad passed away few years ago. I didn't get to say goodbye. But I am hoping for a miracle. I hope the dream signifies hope or a miracle.


  1. Oh I hope so too Ria. I will pray for him. I am so glad you were able to speak to him and I know he heard you. My husband is from the Philippines too. Take care.

    1. Thanks for your comment Lisa and the prayer offering. It means a lot to me and my family. I still hope for the miracle to happen.

      Oh, where in the Philippines is your husband from? So, have you visited my country already?

  2. Hi sis, I do hope and pray that your dream will come true and that your FIL will get better.

  3. Isn't it comforting sis to know that you are able to say what your heart wants to say before everything is too late. Not so many people are given such a chance. You are indeed blessed! God bless your family!

  4. Thanks to all your comforting words sis Ana and Rose. I am hoping for a miracle and I won't stop believing for the miracle to come. He's still not out of the woods. He will be operated tomorrow to put a hole on his throat for better breathing and we are praying for miracles. Thanks a lot.
