Dream 436 – A Tiny Elephant visits while we wait

Received on Sunday, October 4, 2020

The 2nd day of Sukkot.  Sukkot is also commonly called the Feast of Tabernacles, the Festival of Shelters or the Feast of Ingathering.


Dear Father,

Thank You for another day!  Thank You for Your love.  Thank You for my family and friends.  Thank You for the beauty surrounding our home.  This is truly a blessing.  Father, You are good in all things.  You know every good thing.  You also know the bad things, things surrounding us that seek to destroy us.

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 marked my 8th year anniversary of hearing from You, Father.  Wednesday, October 7, 2020 marks my 8th year anniversary of first having a conversation with You.  Sunday, October 7, 2012 was the 7th day of Sukkot.  In comparison, this coming Friday, October 9, 2020 will be the 7th day of Sukkot.

While my husband and I were at prayer night on Wednesday, September 30, 2020, a neighbor captured a photo of a double rainbow over our home.  While this was encouraging, I still find myself struggling at times.  My heart is breaking for so many people.  Local auctioneers have been busy lately as people are unloading their possessions and liquifying their estates to have money to survive.

We have been having trouble with a different set of neighbors these days.  They are building a structure that could result in damage to our side of the property.  There are rules in place to keep them from doing this, but they are ignoring them, hoping the home owner’s association won’t notice.  Unfortunately for them, they have since received a notice.  In the meantime, Father, we pray that You continue to protect our property.

Based on news articles we have been seeing, it appears that the governments are preparing for a second round of the plague to hit the USA and elsewhere.  In reality, they have never recovered from the first round.  Please, Father, remove this sickness before it crosses the lands again.  Please heal those who have contracted this.  Please protect the vulnerable among us.  Please heal President Trump and the First Lady.

During the Ten Days of Awe this year, I looked back at the last five years.  I am still unable to fully let go of the loss of my parents, but especially my mom.  I miss the ability to talk with my mom…here on Earth, that is.  In reality though, she is in Heaven and so much happier than she ever was on Earth.

Father, when will You turn and heal us?  Please show us Your mercy.  I have been in a type of holding pattern.  I am holding onto Your promises.  I am trying to be a normal human being with normal activities, but my heart is breaking.  I am overwhelmed.  I need help.  I need Your help.  I had a dream last night…

Sub-dream 1 “Jesus calms the storm” begins…

I was a small child playing in our yard.  I could see a great storm approaching.  The skies turned dark and the winds were increasing.  They blew so hard, I was almost picked up off of my feet.  I was clinging to something.  I turned to see what I was holding onto and there You were.  You were there with me in the storm.  You reached for my right hand and the storm immediately calmed.  I leaned over and hugged You tightly.

Sub-dream 1 over…

Father, I love You.  However, I am struggling with all of these storms.  There are so many people that are hurting that need You.  There are not enough hours in the day for all of our and their prayer needs.  Father, please help all of us!

Jesus:  “Erin, come up.”

I was outside on our lawn.  There were fall leaves on the ground.  There were so many animals and birds out.

Me:  “Father, I am thankful for these times with You.  I am sorry that I am so sad right now.  Please help me.”

I looked down and there was the little red squirrel who lost half of his tail.  The part of his tail that remained was bushy, but bent to the right.  I always spot him because he looks like he came through a great battle.  I wished that I was able to heal him.  He took a nut from me and he ran across the rocks.  I followed him.  I was hoping to see Jesus, the large rock or the bridge.  None of these were there.  I sat in one of our chairs that exist in real life.  Just like in reality, it was battered from three years of weather.

Me:  “Lord, why does everything get old?  Time continues to go by.  Things break and become old.  Nothings lasts.  Thank You for Heaven and the promise of brand new all of the time.  Thank You for all that You have done for me and my family.  I am thankful!”

I heard something moving behind me.  When I turned, I saw Jesus standing there smiling at me.  I jumped out of my chair and hugged Him.  My tears fell on His robe.

Jesus:  “Erin, I am here.”

Me:  “Lord, so many people are putting curses on our leaders and the President.  They are wishing death upon him and his family.  It is awful.”  I began to cry.  “Will You not soon strengthen us, Lord?  My body is wearing out just like this chair.  I am broken, but I am not alone in this.  So many people long to see healing.  So many long to see their businesses repaired.  So many long for financial miracles.  Please help all of us, Lord.”

Jesus:  “I am here, Erin.  I see and know all things.  You are never removed from Me.  I am with you.  I love you.”  He smiled as He nudged me.  “Erin, does it not seem like just yesterday when you gave Me that three-month deadline to be used by Me for My purposes or you would be done with Me?”

Me:  “I can’t believe that this was way back in 2012.  I am sorry, Lord, that I was so brash as to give You a deadline.”

Jesus:  “I’m not.  I am glad.  You were finally fully honest with Me.  You didn’t hold back and you were rightfully upset.  Now, what are you feeling today?”

Me:  “Lord, I feel exhausted.  I am overwhelmed.  My children need miracles.  My husband needs miracles.  My friends need miracles.  The days, weeks, months and now even years have slipped away.  I still pray for Your promises.  I still believe.  Even in these storms, I still believe.”

Jesus:  Reaching for my hand.  “Come with Me.  You need a smile.”

The bridge suddenly appeared across our stream.  We crossed over the bridge.  We crossed directly into God’s Garden.  We were in a new place there.

Jesus:  “Do you know why I wasn’t already waiting for you when you came to look for Me in your yard?  I was delayed because I was playing with some of My small helpers.”  He then looked at some bushes and called out.   “Okay, where are you?”

I suddenly heard the giggles and laughter of little children.  Several miniature elephants ran out of the bushes.  They were only about three feet high and incredibly cute.  The elephants were then followed by some children around the age of five or so.  When the elephants and the children noticed Jesus, they stopped their play and came to Him.

I could tell that anyone in His presence has an overwhelming love for Him that defies description.  While only with us for a few minutes, I took the opportunity to pet the elephants.  The elephants then ran away again and the children took off after them.  They were playing a game of tag.

Me:  “That was amazing.  I want a baby elephant!”

Jesus:  “Well, how about you wait until you arrive Home?”

Me:  “Do the elephants stay small here?”

Jesus:  “Some do.  Some varieties remain small and ‘cuddly’.  While they look like babies, they are really older.  These look like relatives of the earthly giants.  However, they are interactive and playful here.  They can communicate.  They can even come inside your home to take nap if you invite them.  There are a lot of activities for the many children here.  There are a lot of activities for the teens as well.  All is reconciled here.  Those who lost their lives in their childhoods are able to have one here.”

Me:  “Where are all the baby animals kept?”

Jesus:  “In many places.  While there are many here in My Garden, there are miles and miles of other places to discover here.  You have many animals, some babies and some adults, waiting for you on your property.  Many birds too.  This is all here for your delight and for you to discover.  The angels have been appointed to gather information on things which delight you.  They have been doing this from the time you were very little and will continue doing this until the day you reside here permanently.

“Erin, you have only seen a small ‘sliver’ of all that I have planned for all of you here.”  He smiled.  “Just remember, Erin…My recompense is with Me…on Earth as it is in Heaven.  While every little thing that has ever brought you joy is waiting for you here, there is also so much more that you don’t know about that will also be waiting for you.  This too you will find delightful.  All is perfect here.”

Me:  Crying, but now with joy.  “I can’t wait, Lord.”

Just then, a baby elephant nudged my leg with his nose.  He came up to me and gently rubbed against the side of my leg.  He was overwhelmingly cute.

Jesus:  Smiling at me.  “Erin, he wants a hug!”

Me:  “Oh, they are just so cute.”

I hugged the little elephant and kissed his head.  He then shot water like a fountain from his small trunk towards the laughing children.  They started laughing even more as they played in the ‘new fountain’.

Jesus:  “Erin, it is so nice to see you get caught up in their fun.”  He smiled and laughed.  I have not seen this from you in a while.”

Me:  “I am sorry, Lord.  I am so sorry.”

Jesus:  “Do not worry, Erin, as I have a great plan in place.  Erin, it will bring you great joy.  Please know that I love you.  I am always here with you.  I will not abandon you.  I will heal you…on Earth as it is in Heaven.”  He smiled.

Me:  “Thank You, Lord.”

Jesus:  “You are welcome.  Now, take these days and remember the former days no more.  Erin, I am about to do a new thing.”

Tears continued to stream down my cheeks.  Just then, some tiny angels with bottles came to collect my tears.  They then flew off.

Jesus:  “Your fountains are growing here.  You are keeping them busy.”  He laughed.  “Now, Erin, take joy.  Take comfort.  I am with you.”

He walked me to the side of my yard.  I looked down and noticed that the little red squirrel was now healed.  I turned to Jesus and He was gone.

Note:  As of the time of the posting of this dream, I did not see if the little red squirrel had actually been healed or not.  This healing may be for now or perhaps for a later time instead.  I will soon find out either way.

Dream over…
