Dream- A Bouquet of Dead Flowers

From Journal Entry 11/28/2011

A woman has a bouquet of dead flowers.  She is mourning the loss of someone dear to her.  Jesus is there with the woman.  He is crying, rejoicing this soul.  Jesus wants to buy the flowers from the woman.  The woman's loss of her dear one through death, is a new beginning for the soul.  Jesus sees it as a life to be celebrated (birthday) and thus is a joyous day.

"I have redeemed you not with corruptible things, such as gold and silver, but with the precious blood." 1 Peter 1:18-19, and I have purchased you with such great labor that I may fittingly rejoice over your salvation and be ready to pardon. 1 Peter 23-25 "Being born again not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.  For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass.  The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:  But the word of the Lord endureth forever.
