inside dreams




Where do people go to when they die?

Somewhere down below or in the sky?
'I can't be sure,' said Grandad, 'but it seems
They simply set up home inside our dreams.'

  5. Oh, makes me miss my grandpa. He was so special. I never thought about it until I was an adult, how I'd always find shiny coins on the ground each time we went out for a stroll together, and how he must have placed them there when I wasn't looking. I just thought I was lucky when we were together. Well, that's grandpa love.

  6. 'In my father's house are many rooms;if it were not so I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you,I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am'
    John 14:2-3
