And sure enough, as I got to the obituary section of the Macon newspaper, there it was the obituary of the oldest parishioner of St. Joseph Church who had died on Sunday at 99 and a half years old.
I was stunned by the coincidence, but it doesn't stop there.
The lady who died is the grandmother of another parishioner when I was there who often comments on my blog!
My urge to look at the Macon Telegraph's obituary was around the time of this lady's wake in Macon last night, meaning the "Vigil for the Deceased" or the Rosary at about 7 pm.
About 20 minutes ago as I type this post, the grandson of this parishioner called me to let me know about the death of his grandmother. The funeral is in 15 minutes at St. Joseph Church as I type this! He was outside the Church awaiting the rest of the family to gather for the Funeral Mass.
I told him, that someone beat him to the punch about informing me of his grandmother's funeral either mental telepathy or his grandmother showed me the way to find out.
I think mental telepathy might be the case, becasue the grandson last night was wondering if I knew that his grandmother had died and he was wondering it as the Vigil for the Deceased was about the begin.
How kool is that?
The grandson's guardian angel informed your guardian angel, who gave you a gentle nudge to check the obits.
Thank you, Father, for keeping the quiet necessary in your heart, to not only hear, but to also respond, to that "still small voice."
God bless you and have a happy Thanksgiving Day!
One morning when I woke up I had the sense that my father visited during the night. This was not a dream just a feeling. My father died that night...in Europe. (This is not a made up story.) He was only 72 years old and active but died of a massive stroke.
Coincidence is fairly commonplace, but when we encounter it, it always comes as a surprise. In most cases we can rule out any metaphysical explanation, however tempting that explanation might be.
On the other hand there are more things in heaven and earth ...
