Well, on January 4th, my grandfather passed away. He died from a combination of things mainly attributed to his lifelong career as a mason, and even more so, he was a smoker. He was a great man, father, brother, and grandfather. He was a devout Catholic all his life and was especially devoted to the Blessed Mother; he and my whole family have been raised that way in that my great-grandfather was visited by Her and was amazingly devoted to Her: and so here's the amazing part of the story. My grandpa was strong all his life; lived at home for 79 years and the closest he got to a hospital was going to the doctor's office. Sadly, on December 4th, 2006 he went into the Critical Care Unit of the hospital and stayed there for a month until he passed away last thursday. Well, my mother was born in Angola and her childhood was robbed from her by the civil war. The only thing she, now as an adult, has from her childhood is a statue of the Blessed Mother. A long time ago, she lost the statue and was extremely saddened. The day my grandfather passed away, my mom found her statue. It was in a completely random spot, and she just, as if compelled by something, decided to look there and found it. She called my father, and after hearing, my dad knew that was my grandpa's last day on this green earth. As very religious people we see this as a sign that the Blessed Mother herself was coming to comfort my grandpa in his dying hours. About 15 minutes before he died, my grandpa, with his 4 sons, wife, and all his sibling by his bedside, did something he never did before, and my father, holding his hand, knew my grandpa "saw the light". My grandpa opened up his eyes, and stared straight up, and was fixed on something and stared into space very diliberately. He slowly closed his eyes, and we knew it was almost time. He took his last breath about 10 minutes later. Well over 400 people came to his wake, and the funeral director said, that in his 28 years of owning that home, he's never seen so many flowers sent to our family. I love my grandfather very, very much, and am so happy for him; if this isn't proof of God's existense, i don't know what is!
im very sorry to hear about your loss, but im glad to see that he helped your mother find her statue from the other side
I didn't make it!
lm sorry to hear about your father also, but will remind you that you are highly emotional right now, and that does impear judgement. No offence, but thats not proof of anything. If it helps you get through its a good thing, if you want to start advertising, using your father as en excuse that god must be real and using him in a topic, bound for debate, , be ready for some comments you may find offencive, for it all in your opinion, and to use such a subject to drop the line 'if this isn't proof of God's existense, i don't know what is!' under a topic title, 'god works in mysterious ways' , sry dude, maybe it should have been titled, ''passed away''. What you have given us is the equivelent to a ghost story. And lm real sorry but your post has utterly failed in showing me god must be real. Sry about your father.And best wishes.
Yeah, about the whole "Proof of God" thing, you can belive whatever you want. I think it is just coincidence, but if it makes you feel better to think that it was some of magic god thing that is cool too. I have thought crazier things. One time I thought I had gone back in time, but in reality I had just gotten lost (Long story for that).
Mind can play crazy tricks on you. Whenever I am about to go to bed I go crazy and hallucinate spiders for some reason and scare myself crazy. The trama of your grandfather's death probley just made you go temperaly insane. My reccomendation to you is to get plenty of rest, your probley a bit delusional right now.
I also find it funny how your post assigns so much praise to the "Blessed Mother". You are freaking Christian, where is the god praising (Only that last part is). I am sorry, I just don't get the whole Catholic thing where they all worship jesus's mom like she was some kind of magic or something.
Just when I think I understand Catholics something like pops up. I guess I will neve know...

God doesn't exist.

How incredibly objective and scientific. You should be proud of being a moron. :o

Yeah, that isn't proving the existance of God at all. The human mind works in mysterious ways. Sorry about your loss.
