From Winston Salem, North Carolina “Overall View”


In this post, we look at a prophetic dream recently submitted by Lisa  in North Carolina


This dream came from a mother who relayed a dream her daughter received while the daughter was engaged to be married or while ending that engagement.

“My daughter who was engaged (engagement is ending) dreamed that she was dressing her fiancé in red overalls and a Christmas sweater, for a date with another woman.”


Here’s my take:

This dream is most likely bringing divine insight concerning your daughter’s fiancé.


Overalls are defined in the Cambridge Dictionary as “a piece of clothing that covers both the upper and lower parts of the body and is worn especially over other clothes to protect them”. The type of overalls which are a fashion garment most likely revert to the same symbolism as the original garment.

OVERALLS in dreams, then, represent PROTECTION from dirt, grime, grease, stains. So, this represents “a covering for sin and the consequences of sin.” This “protection” can be coming from an individual person OR from God.

That your daughter was dressing her fiancé in “overalls” reveals that she is somehow graciously facilitating his forgiveness or supplying a covering for him.


Your daughter dreaming that the overalls were RED may clarify that God was speaking in the overalls symbolism of the “blood of Jesus” covering the sins of the young man.

Alternatively, red speaks of battle or power. Should the color red represent one of these, the “covering of protection” might be connected to a battle, power, or the struggle for power.


CHRISTMAS-TIME in dreams often has to do with a time of joy and the coming of a gift or gifts.

So this element could speak of a “time of joy”, which in this case, could be eluding to the upcoming wedding. The dreamer has given permission for a marriage to take place.

Christmas could even speak of your daughter “giving herself” to the fiancé. Truly, a woman who marries provides a great gift to the husband.

On the other hand, Christmas can have to do with “the giving and receiving of a gift or gifts”. This could speak of a gift from God, such as mercy. Or it could speak of your daughter giving the young man the gift of forgiveness or “covering”.


That Christmas is tied to a sweater is as significant as the other dream elements. Shirts, blouses and sweaters peak of “experience”, something which has been experienced by someone.

Since sweaters are knitted, they often speak of something which was developed and experienced over a good deal of time… such as a relationship.


The date with another woman carries 2 possibilities as I see it.

One could be that the forgiveness she bestows on him will lead him to a time of fellowship with the Holy Spirit. And when we connect to the Holy Spirit, we are connecting with ultimate wisdom and perspective.

But the other possibility is that she has been “enabling” him by covering for him in hopes that his “cheating with another woman” turns out to be a one-time thing that he repents for.


The date with another woman carries 2 possibilities as I see it.

You will have a better sense about it than I will because you know detail concerning the REAL-LIFE BACKGROUND. You also know the TIMING of the dream, which can make all the difference!

#1- Unless the engagement was ending because the young man was cheating, God is saying that your daughter’s actions and words will result in his having a date with the Holy Spirit. I’ve seen this type of symbolism used many times (where the other woman was the Holy Spirit, or other man was Jesus).

#2- On the other hand, this dream seems to be a reminder to her that she is “covering for him” (red overalls) in order to save the relationship, the wedding, and to redeem all the time spent on it (Christmas sweater). In this case, it’s like God is holding up a mirror and showing her what she’s doing, and asking her to evaluate it that is the best choice.
