As he walked into the crowded terminal, packed with people because of the crash, he looked down at the developing pictures. Instead of finding pictures of himself, they were pictures of Joey, all radiant and beautiful. Joe was thinking how happy he was that he had gotten some new pictures of Joey, when suddenly it dawned on him that these had just been taken only minutes before. He fell to his knees sobbing, which woke him up, still sobbing.
His interpretation of the dream: the plane is life, the crash is all that goes wrong in our broken world, God has to tow us out of the crash, the drivers are angels, God's ministering servants, the towel indicates that all material things are gone, and don't matter, the pictures of Joey were a window into eternity, the reality is not this life, but the life beyond.
Good dream--good tears.
Joey is alive and well and in another place, but not so very far away.
Acts 2:17 In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.
