In this dream, I found myself dressed in 1800’s style clothing and in the town of Walnut Grove. I was Caroline Ingalls. I had received a package at the Post and I opened it. I took out a lovely book about Little House. It was wonderful, I loved it so much. But there was a surprise in the box…another book!
The second Book was packaged and covered in ashes. My heart longed for this book, and I was so excited to read both books.
I heard the townspeople gathering and talking amongst themselves. They were very impressed with the carpentry work that Charles had made on the new buildings in town. I walked over to them and said, “Remember how excited he was to start building? He kept inspecting everything, checking it for strength…” I was very proud of Charles. I was amazed at his handiwork.
I saw him approaching us. I noticed he had his old fashioned wooden carpenter’s box hanging from his shoulder. He was eating an apple and he had a HUGE smile on his face!
He came to me and said, “Hello!” ツ
- The first book and the book covered in ashes represent the Orignal Covenant and the Final Covenant. I thank God for answering my prayer to help me understand the true meaning of the Book of Ashes, because for a while I thought it might only be a reference to a poetry book by the same name.
- Charles and Caroline symbolically represent the Bridegroom and the Bride.
- The townspeople represent the holy angels and the saints who have gone before us to be with Jesus.
Joh 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, so that where I am, you may be also.

P.S. This is the second dream I’ve had with Charles and Caroline as symbolic representations of Jesus and his Bride; this is also the second dream that references the Book of Ashes. My tribute to Little House’s Charles and Caroline:
