I must preface whatever else I say by saying this: Should an Atheist read this article their feelings might be "No Way". Should an Agnostic read this article their feelings may also be:"No Way" However, I lived it and yes some way.
It was November 1996 and at the time both my parents were hospitalized. I don't know how many of my fellow Viners are familiar with Brooklyn New York, but my Mother was in Brookdale Hospital, and my Father was a patient at Kingsbrooke Hospital. Their proximity is separated by approximately 2 miles.
At the time my Father was the ripe old age of 88, and my mother was 86, needless to say I wanted them to live forever, unfortunately that wasn't my call.
During their stay at the facilities I would go to work each day and each evening I would visit them religiously, disregarding the fact I had to be at work at 3.00 am. I don't know of anyone who would allow that to be a deterrent when speaking of parents. Be that as it may if memory serves me correctly each night when in bed I would pray for their recovery and a return to their normal lives. There was one night in particular I prayed so hard until tears came to my eyes then while laying there with tears oozing down my cheeks a very heavy voice said to me:"easy stop"(I chose to not use my given name)Any word I use to describe what I felt at the time would be a understatement, but I do know it was the Almighty speaking to me saying: easy don't worry any more I got them. And I don't believe I prayed any more after that night because I was told to stop.
Perhaps two weeks later my Father passed away, and maybe three months after that my Mother passed on.
I am not the very religious type by any stretch, but I do believe in him, because he spoke to me in what I considered no uncertain terms. Having said that my question to all out there is: Has any of you experienced anything similar? Similar to the extent God spoke to you.
