(I finally took the time to write this on Good Friday, Marcy 25, 2005)
Dear Friends and Family,
I want to share with you another Divine Mercy Vision in our home. It was in December 8th*, early a.m.
I was awoken by a sharp pain on my right side. I flew out of bed and grabbed my right side. I was woken more when I saw red and white light brightly flooding our bedroom I shouted to Rick who was sound asleep. There was a loud noise like wind, but silent at the same time. Very hard to explain this. I shouted Rick's name over and over but he did not wake. I don't think Rick could hear me over the sound, & I could not hear my own voice. I finally just stood and watched until it ended. When it ended the room grew quiet and dark, and I was exhausted. I was not scared. I knew right away that it was the same light that I see in the picture in my living room, from St. Faustian. I was afraid I would fall asleep and forget that this happened. So I noticed that the little green light on my laptop was on which meant that it was not shut down, so I proceeded to shut it down and I arranged something's on my laptop table to prove to myself that I did not dream it. I know this is sort of silly, why didn't I just write myself a note, but at that hour of the morning I was so tired, I wasn't thinking straight.
When I woke up the next morning I saw my rearranged laptop table, and I told Rick everything. We both talked a bit about our thoughts on why it happened. It happened that I was going to see my surgeon for a follow up on this day. So, Rick thought the vision meant that I had more difficulties to follow, I thought it meant that whatever was ahead of me, Jesus would be there to see me through.
As it turned out we were both right. I went to my follow up appointment and was entered back into the hospital. You all know the rest of the story so I will end it here. I did not relay the story right away because I literally went into the hospital that day. When I came home I was busy recovering from surgery and I kept putting it off. This week I have had this nagging inner voice to share this, to put it into writing.
I wanted to draw a picture of what I saw so I could share it. But I never did. I wish I had a camera to take the picture. But since I've done neither I will try to relay exactly what I saw. I have 3 windows, I was facing 2 of them when I flew out of bed. The shades were closed. The top half of the window had bright red light flooding through it, sending it all about the room, the lower half of the window had white light flooding through it as well. Just to let you know, these windows face a dark back yard and not a street. I hope that explains it well. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I am not sure why the light was not side by side like the picture but that is how I saw it.
** Later I realized I was laying on my side when I saw the light, which would put it side by side **
I also wanted to get this message out by today because today, Good Friday, is the First day of the Divine Mercy Novena. http://www.ewtn.com/Devotionals/mercy/novena.htm
This ends on Divine Mercy Sunday.
*The Immacualte Conception is celebrated on December 8th.
