In my ancestry, I have so many people who were devout Bible-believing Christians. I am so grateful that God, my Heavenly Father, invested all that faith into me. My parents were not Christians; I was not raised in a Christian home. I knew absolutely nothing about my ancestry until the late 1980s when I began my research. Now my lineage is well-documented and I have Quakers, Mennonites, and Old German Baptist Brethren (and LDS but I ignore that branch of the tree).
…but I’ve “got a tiger by the tail and can’t let go.”
I found a new branch of the tree. When I saw “Lydia Macy” in my “Frantz tree,” I wanted to see if she connected to the Macy’s in my “Coffin tree.” Yes, indeed, I traced her family back to Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. See my Thanksgiving Day blog message for links to my history of those families. This is so fascinating; I can’t walk away!!
It was so real, I’m still trembling (5:20 AM)!! I was in the back seat of the car; a man and woman were in the front seat. We were “in the country” —and no traffic. The driver, the man, approached an intersection and did not stop for the stop sign. The car almost hit a horse and rider (on the crossroad). I can see the horror on the face of the equestrian (but I don’t know if it was a man, woman, or child). We were inches from a terrible accident.
Why would I have such a dream? Why am I remembering it? Is this an alternate scenario from the horrible tragedy in Waukesha, Wisconsin, where a man drove into the Christmas parade, killing and injuring many people? ~~ This is an alarming start to my Sunday morning. However: “Let not my heart be troubled…”
In response to two of my recent blog messages, a cousin sent this extremely valuable (to me) information. My answer: “No.”
