I woke about 4 am and then finally went back to sleep. I started to dream and had a very strong sensation of being lifted under my arms and being pulled up into the sky. I was being moved very rapidly (something or someone was moving me, I wasn't moving myself) and I could look down and see a bridge down below until I crossed water and then I could see a small island and a lighthouse below. This scene suddenly closed and I felt the sensation that I was dropped down and then the next scene was the shoreline. The wind was blowing but it was warm. I was right at the shoreline and there were other people in front of me (about 50 I think, young, old, etc.). A woman touched my shoulder and smiled and said something in another language, but then I turned around and my husband was behind me and he greeted me. He didn't look old and sick, he looked the same age as when I met him (about 45 yrs). I then woke up but I was very exhausted from this encounter and it took me some time to feel normal. I checked the clock and it was 5 am when I woke up. This was very strong and vivid, especially the part about being transported and I strongly believe I had an ADC with my husband. I think the people on the shore were those who had "crossed over" with him and were awaiting another place to be (maybe Heaven).
