At 85 Years Old It’s Not Too Late to See a Dream Realized: the Kenneth Shaw Story
by Blondie L. Clayton
“One day Joseph had a dream, and he went to go tell his brothers. He said, "Guess what? Last night I had a strange dream. We were tying up bunches of grain out in the field when suddenly my bunch stood up, while all of yours gathered around and bowed to me." The brothers looked at each other in disgust, but Joseph continued. "Then I had another dream that the sun, moon, and eleven stars bowed down to me."
Is there any truth to Dreams? We read about them in the Bible but in our personal lives we discount them. By the time we wake up in the morning they dissipate, never to be remembered or thought of again.
Is it possible that the dreams we ignore mean something?
There is one dream that has remained with Kenneth Shaw year after year and has bothered him to the point of hiring a writer to help him to tell the story. According to Shaw, in this dream the earth opened up and he, like everyone else, ran in fear until something stopped him and turned him back to the opening. What he saw and heard in that dream has remained etched in his heart.
Jamaican born Shaw retired from his profession as a “Finisher” to live a comfortable life but there was always something he felt he needed to do. At 85 years old, the dreams and strange happenings Shaw once experienced still can’t be put to rest even today.
“It seemed so real. At first it was frightening, then once I got closer it was beautiful, alluring. And then I heard this voice say, ‘Warn the people’,” said Shaw.
Unusual happenings have followed Shaw much of his life but two miracles are still in his possession to this day.
“I had been sanding the table for sometime and it was time for a lunch break. I put the sandpaper down and took my lunch. When I returned I picked up the piece of sandpaper I had been using and to my amazement I noticed an outline of a lady kneeling,” recounts Shaw.
So amazed at the sight, Shaw shared it with co-workers. Each one that saw it proclaimed, “It’s an angel. It’s an angel.” At their encouragement Shaw took the miracle to a Catholic photographer. The photographer told Shaw to take it to the local newspaper but nothing ever came of it. Just as the angel appeared, Shaw watched it fade away years later from the sandpaper canvas but he has kept the photo all these years.
This miracle photograph still sits among Shaw’s prized possessions.
“None of my co-workers had ever seem anything like that and neither had I,” said Shaw.
That wasn’t the end, exactly seven years later a cat appeared the same way, in the sandpaper he was working with, except this time it stayed and has been retained by Shaw in its original form.
Shaw has waited over 50 years to chronicle these strange happenings in a memoir titled I Was Judged by God and Found Guilty. His goal at 85 years old is to reach one million people with his story. Looking through Shaw’s documentation of some of these strange occurrences will quickly dispel any doubt one might have.
“I have been waiting for 50 years to do this and now the dream has been realized. I have done what I have been told to do and my soul is at peace,” said Shaw. Read more at www.JudgedByGod.Com or email Shaw at kenwshaw.bellsouth.net.
