Not my time

Location: melbourne vic australia

By: FIONA MALONEY

Around June 2000, i had been quite ill my heart felt like it was pounding out of my chest i was faint, tired. I put it down to having a new born and 6 other children to raise. I was not one for seeing the local doctor every time i was unwell. This particular night i fell into a deep sleep i woke up to see grey bulging clouds out side my bedroom window they were rolling and it looked like a tornado was forming This circular rotation of the clouds grew faster and i notice it starting to open, like a whirlpool opening, white light was trying to break thru>there was silence i couldnt hear then doves flew out of the opening but all i could hear was the sound of their wings flapping. I was amazed, i then began to hear music but nothing like I\'ve heard before. The opening in the clouds grew bigger and bright whit light broke thru and then a person was floating down slowly i realised who it was it was jesus he has his hands open with white light coming out of his palms and heart area of his body. i wanted to be with him so terribly the ache was unbearable i tried to jump up as if to run to him but i was stuck somehow, i turned and i saw my body I looked asleep i turned back to jesus and tried to go to him> When my nana who died 2 years earlier stood infront of me and told me it was not my time. With that i woke in my bed, with mixed emotions. I knew i had to see a doctoR. I went the next morning explained how i was feeling i had blood tests and found out i had pernicious anemia and that my count was so low i could of died of heart failure or gone into a coma.So i believe i had that beautiful experience, and it saved my life.
