"To Mary Anna Re Grandma"
I have never done a study on Angels. But
since I have a past in the occult, where 'ghosts' were thought to
sometimes 'stay around' either voluntarily or by some fluke of
happenstance that kept them 'earth bound'...I have been very reluctant
to think that loved ones do that in any way.
I personally do not
believe that any living person, once dead, can come back, influence or
somehow 'watch over' the living. But, that being said, I can not say
that the Angels that DO 'guard' us, that DO 'watch over' us, do so with
the knowledge of what those we love want for us.
We also can not
disregard the knowledge that God has given us...the incredible 'ultra
computer' brain that he's created in us that can store all kinds of
info even if we do not realize we have it in our minds. You said
yourself, your memories of your grandma were scripture and prayer
related. Even if you 'made yourself scarce', those words you heard,
those actions of 'getting on your knees', those prayers impacted you.
directed those words from this obviously on fire for the Lord woman.
Don't think that all that was for naught. She does not have to be an
active 'guardian angel' to be watching over you, since your memories of
her, your acquired knowledge of Scripture, and the influence she had on
your life are real, active and very much alive.
affected you in that instance, but I believe it was from the miracle of
memory, and very possibly the Angelic Spirits that surrounded her
during her life that could very well be carrying on their work with
you. These messengers of God know us...we should not be surprised when
they whisper in our ear the things that we need to know, especially
when it's about someone so dear to the heart of the Lord.
These are only my thoughts, I don't have anything Biblical to point to, just my heart talking.
guess I just want to say that a person can affect us long after they
are gone, especially when they had the love of the Lord in their
hearts. That is a testament to her faith and His love. The lessons she
gave you are still with you today. You are blessed.
And, as I
stated in another letter, I think we are all going to know each other
when we get to our mansions! We are going to be one big family at that
table. I look forward to meeting Grandma.
