I went through some old belongings of my father's tonight. One of the things I came across was a Book of Common Prayer and Hymns A & B that belonged to my great grandmother. The inscription was from my great great grandmother to her daughter, Christmas 1893. I unwrapped it from its cellophane and opened it and the page it fell open to was the Collects for Good Friday. I felt a wave of emotion and almost started crying. Coincidence or the Divine? I don't know, but whatever it might be, I felt the embrace of family and of God.

Well, whether it's G-d or just a coincidence, that's a pretty cool find.

It doesn't matter what it is. What really matters is: it makes you happy, it make you feel warm and loved.
Whatever way you look at it, it's a blessing.
*hugs you*

OK, and now I have a catch in my throat, too. I've experienced a few of these types of things--not a lot, but each one has given me the knowing that God and His angels are connecting me to family. How awesome for you!

I believe in ghosts so as far as I'm concerned, someone was letting you know they were there and are watching over you.
