Last night, I had a strange dream. I walked into a home and two children were waiting. They were crying.
I asked them, “Are you hurt?”
They replied, “No”
“Then, what’s wrong?”
“He’s in pain. He needs your help.”
As soon as I woke up, I knew what the message meant. I hurried downstairs in the dark.
I opened the door to the living room and there he was. My “friend” was writhing in pain on the sofa and he could barely walk. I got him some ice and pain medication. Then, I sat with him until he felt a little better. I’m glad I listened to the message from above voice and followed my instincts.
