The Gift, by Dana Claire.
God came to visit a woman one night in her dreams.
He told her
"I am giving you a gift"
When the woman woke she was confused and dismissed the dream.
The next day, the woman went to the doctors for a mysterious pain she was experiencing throughout her body.
After some tests, the doctor informed the woman, "You have cancer."
The woman was devastated. She cried with her family and prayed for a miracle.
After a year of fighting with all her might, the woman could feel death near.
One night before bed, she prayed to the Lord,
"I have fought hard and long. I'm not sure how much more I can endure."
Later that night the Lord came to her in her dreams and said,
"I gave you a gift. I allowed you to see the vast effect you have had on all those that know you. I have showed you on earth the positive impact your life has meant to so many. By your example, others will fight harder and live fuller lives. I have given you a gift. You have suffered on earth but you will remain an angel in heaven for eternity."
That morning the woman did not wake. But her spirit lives on in all of us who refuse to give up. She gave us all a gift. She gave us strength.
