Riley2112-Wow-Someone with some sense and intelligence and polite too-how refreshing! Thanks! Just when I had given up hope.
Greybeard-You strike me as being very pompous. It is very evident you are much better educated than I so there is no sense trying to debate you. You can argue until you are blue in the face and you will never change how I believe. What I believe comes from my heart. I was never taught religion. My parents did not go to church nor did they send me. I went on my own when I was old enough although did not attend regularly.
I have prayed and not all of prayers have come true, some have.
I have talked with a medium, several times, even though it is frowned upon in the bible, and she (only knowing my first name, over the telephone) told me things for an hour that no one else could have possibly known except my beloved husband ,who died 6 months earlier. I did not feed her answers..all she allowed were yes and no answers, nothing else. She told me that a father, father in law and husband (all deceased)were there and proceeded to give me their names-correctly! She went on to describe my husband, how he died, what he did for a living, our life together, his monument I had designed,a mirror I had just hung the day before, Christmas bonuses I had just paid the men who had worked for him,what we did for hobbies, the first picture we had taken together, a Mayor's trophy we won in a parade I had forgotten all about (she said they do this to prove she is not reading my mind),about his two rings I had on while we were speaking and on and on for the entire conversation. I have the tape of the call. I have spoken with her twice since. I also saw John Edward, live and I believe my husband came through then but I did not pick up on it until too late. Now if there is nothing after we die can someone explain all of this to me? I was not thinking of any of this while she was talking, I was too busy crying.
He said he no longer hurt and that we were supposed to die together but something happened to change that. He also said he would wait for me. He also told her to tell me I was right. We used to argue about life after death and I used to tell him he could not prove it did not exist the same as I could not prove it did but I believed in it and that was what he meant by my being right. When I explained that to her she laughed and said yes, he was laughing too and said yes that was what he meant.
There are other things that make me believe but do not want to make this a book.
