I'm not a superstitious person. I don't believe in wacky, ghostly stuff. I don't summon spirits or delve in the macabre.
But something happened to me that makes me wonder. Last night, my sis and I were watching back 2 back episodes of Extreme Makeover she taped. After she fed the baby, she burped her and she spit up. I told her that I'd go get Savahn a change of clothes. I rounded the corner and proceeded down the long hallway. At the end of the hallway is my mom and dad's old bedroom. The light was on. As I rounded the corner, I caught a glimpse of a shadowy figure moving swiftly from right to left. I got cold chills. I am not fearful of spirits because I know that I'm washed in the blood of the Lamb and nothing can harm me. I went down the hallway and peeked into the room to see if there was anything abnormal in there. The two big dogs were in there lying on their pillows fast asleep. I wonder if my Dad's spirit still lingers there? Do people immediately go to Heaven when they die or do they just hang out until Jesus comes back to get us all? Anyway, I told my sister of the experience and she also got cold chills. Then I remembered that my mom told me of a similar experience she had. My sis ran to the grocery store for something. Mom was alone at the house. She heard a noise, turned and looked and saw a shadowy figure. She started calling out to my sister, thinking it was her she had seen. But my sister had not yet returned from the store.
I had forgotten all about Mom's story until last night when that happened to me. It's not like my sis and I had been talking about it and the recent conversation led me to imagine that I saw something. No, I know what I saw. It was really strange. I was so close to my dad. If it was him, then I'm happy that he's still near.
Has anything otherworldly ever happened to you?? What are your thoughts? This would have been more fitting a couple weeks ago during Halloween. Hee hee...
