Topic: Heaven

Sunday I received a booklet by Randy Alcorn called Heaven.  Lately I have been questioning my faith, I know there is a God, dearly believe in heaven, but I have had question.  This book tells of heaven in the present day, what would heaven be like, will there be animals in heaven, what won't be in heaven, can whoever is heaven know what's going on on earth, and will we be reunited with and recognize our loved ones in heaven, and much more this book is wonderful.  My copy is only 60 pages long, but the orginal is 468 pages, I'll be glad when I can get that one.  I recommend this book to everyone on this web site.

Love to my Wayne for 36 years
I'm not a widow, I am a wife
We are only apart for heaven's sake
You are waiting for me at heaven's gate

Re: Heaven

You know I am a firm believer! I would love to reiterate some personal moments I have witnessed and others can decide for themselves.

1. Dad passed 6 years ago at 93 yrs. old. He didn't believe in anything he couldn't understand or have proof of. Day before he passed we could not wake him up. Called Paramedica and they couldn't wake him. Finally used the old breast bone rub and he bounced awake. The first thing he said was that he saw heaven and it was beautiful. He passed the next day.

2. When Teddy was passing over he was reaching out to people from beyond. He would hold his arms out then encircle them like a hug then pursed his lips like he was kissing them. Only name he mentioned was "oh, Mama". She passed about 40 years ago. This went on for about 2 hours.

3. When I think Teddy came to visit me about a month after he passed:
I was sitting in Teddy's recliner. I looked at the couch and saw a strange object. I looked away and looked back and the object started to bounce around on the sofa pillow.  I said,

Re: Heaven

Hi,

I want to add that like Lainy, I believe.  Part of me questions why good people have to suffer so much, and why would a God put people and their families through so much pain BUT believing there is a Heaven is helping me.

Before Dad passed away he too was having conversations with loved ones that had passed.  2 hours before he passed away he sat upright desperate to get to the corner of the room.  After that he said "I'm coming" previously he had been saying "I'm not ready yet".  From the Wednesday before he passed on the Saturday, Mom and I had been experiencing periods of coldness, like we were being wrapped in a blanket of coldness.  This got stronger from the Friday and we really do believe that it was the presence of relatives that had passed away.

On the morning of Dads funeral I smelt his aftershave whilst washing up in the kitchen, it was so strong, almost as though he was standing next to me.

A few days after Dads funeral, I saw an orb on the upstairs landing outside my sons bedroom, I like to think this was my Dad watching out for my son who has been having a difficult time lately.

I like to think Dad is now with relatives and friends who have passed away, catching up on old times and looking over us until we are all together again.

Devoted Daughter to the most wonderful Dad a girl could ask for.  Sadly lost his battle on 19.02.11, peacefully in the arms of Mom and I.  As requested by Dad "we will keep on smiling".

Re: Heaven

Andie, can you tell me what the orb looked like? I have seen many orbs but only in photographs.

Perhaps orb was the wrong word to use but it was like a ball of light, hovering on the ground outside my sons bedroom door.  The landing was in darkness, as I didn't want to wake my husband and son by putting  the lights on.  All doors were shut so nothing could have reflected to cause this light.  For a second I froze on the spot and felt my heart racing, after a few second it went.  My son had been having a really hard time with Dads death and I like to think it was Dad paying him a visit.

Re: Heaven

Andie, that is just what it was. An orb is generally light but almost clear or at least a little foggy looking for want of a better word. And round. If you take pictures start watching them closely as you may see orbs in the picture as well.
The way Teddy appeared on the couch was really weird. Golden in color and about 3" x 2" and looked almost like an ink blot. If I had to say exactly I would say an ink blot that looked like a mini pagoda. When it touched my hand, by the way, there was no feeling from it at all. It just moved down and sat there. Isn't this all so exciting? To even feel a little bit that we are connecting to the beyond? I feel so priviledged, comfortable and loved!

Re: Heaven

Lainy, it really took my breathe away when I saw it.  I haven't had anything like it since but will definatley look out for objects in our future photos.

My Mom often used to see 1 star in the sky, which she said was my Grandad, and she said to my Dad, when you reach your next journey let me know you are there by shining in the sky.  A few nights ago when Mom was looking out the window 2 stars were shining bright next to each other.  She hasn't seen it since.

Also on 3 occasions when Mom hasn't locked up properly she has heard a noise which has made her go downstairs, hence discovering a door is unlocked. I'm convinced this is also my Dad telling her to lock up properly. as he was always worried she wouldn't when he was in hospital!  Luckily it's not the main door she is forgetting to lock but still a door enough to worry Dad.

My husband keeps finding 5 pences in the strangest of places (pity it is not

Re: Heaven

Yes, Andie, this is all your dad. Even the pence. Actually they are known here for leaving pennies all around. I haven't found any yet. Keep watching, keep an open mind and keep on loving! It sure feels good, yes? I especially love the story about the unlocked door.

Re: Heaven

My daughter had a unique experience today that she says was her dad. She has a picture of her dad and me on her desk. Every time she walked in the room, the pictures were knocked over. She called her brother in the room and said, "Watch, I can hit this desk as hard as I can and the picture won't fall over." She hit the desk and nothing. But several times the picture was down. Then somehow the picture became just of her dad. She thinks Dad was playing with her and saying hi. He was such a tease.

My mother-in-law passed away on March 15, 2011 and my younger daughter was at home with her husband and her 16 month old son. About 20 minutes after Grandma passed, little Noah was staring over by the refrigerator. His dad said, "Buddy, what you are looking at? You are freakin' me out." We believe that Grandma stopped on her way out to look in on her favorite granddaughter and her great-grandson.

Keep on believing and watching for the miraculous.

Re: Heaven

Hello every one,

I'm thinking about the days when I was running to this website for support and have been almost afraid to come back to it for all the memories. It is my moms 2 year memorial April 14 and my dads 2 year memorial was Feb 28.

I feel full of word and speechless at the same time. I often want to talk about my parents as I'm sure you all relate. They never will be forgotten, all our loved ones.

The last week of my moms life I was pregnant and didn't know. We now have a beautiful , baby girl of 15 months and having her immediately after loosing both parents has been the greatest gift ever. 

I hadn't been sure about having kids and a dietician who was tending my mom at the hospital and who had seen me go through my dads sudden death and my moms 4 month stay at the hospital, convince me that it was time to start my own family and to not ask too many questions. My loving partner has always been ready but never pushed. I gues in my open vulnerable state she got through to me and immediately after experiencing the greatest pain I had known, I experienced the greatest joy. We  have decided to get married this June and you are all invited!!;)  I'm so grateful for all of you and this board and send so much love and care and blessings to everyone, including our dear ones on the other side. Mama, Baba sas agapo polh kai then sas xehnaw pote. (Mom and dad I love you very much and will never forget you.)

Thanks again for having suppported me throughthis and now, that I finally have the strength to come back here , I hope I can be of help to some one as well.

Mom and dad forever in my heart.  I love you always. April 14 2009 mom passed and March 1 2009 dad passed. As my mom said to me 'What ever happens, be strong.'

Re: Heaven

Congratulations! What an encouragement. Yes, we carry our loved ones in our hearts and those memories bring us comfort and strength.

Re: Heaven

Wow, Natasha, what Miracles you have been experiencing. Having a baby, a wedding soon, reminds us all of the Circle of Life. I am sure your Mom and Dad are so happy and now they are watching over their Granddaughter. Wouldn't you be surprised if we all showed up for the wedding?
