Notre Dame Apparition + Green Orb + Angels In Disquise...

About two years ago I went to Notre Dame here in N Indiana with my Grandchildren, their Mother and their other Grandmother. We went to mass and afterwards visited the grotto behind the church built like the one in France. I took several pictures and on the last photo I saw a flash of light come down in the picture. I have never before or since seen this happen with my camera. If you open the picture and look closely you can see an apparition with hands
clasped, and you can make out clothing like a nuns or bible time clothes. She appears to be looking down at my granddaughter who is lighting a candle. I will always treasure this picture and have made an eight by ten and have in on display in my lawyers cabinet. It was only one of the times in my life that I felt the presence of something Holy visiting me or my family...

When my oldest grandchild was about 4-5 months old she had spent the night with us so Mom and Dad could have some alone time. We had fixed up a little pink bedroom for her and found a really nice crib at a garage sale. I needed all this because I babysat her everyday.

We lived out in the country and it was a beautiful fall day. Baby had done just fine and had a wonderful evening being spoiled by Mamaw and Papaw. I got her ready for bed and it was to be her first time in the crib in a room by herself. I felt panicky but knew it would be better for all of us if she moved into her own little room for the night.

It was just about daylight and I jolted awake and sprang up and ran down the hall to the baby's room. Just as I entered her room the sun was just starting to light up the sky and there on the wall above the side of her crib was an emerald green orb. It was about the size of a small apple. She was awake and smiling and cooing at the orb and did not notice me at all. As I looked at the orb the most euphoric feeling came over me. It was the most joy I have ever experienced in my life. To this day I can't get past how wonderful I felt. Sadly the orb faded away and disappeared all the way. I looked all over that room to see what could have possible made the orb. Nothing could I ever find. Baby and I went on with our day and I never saw the orb again. 

 About two years after that she was finally starting to talk pretty good and I took her to the mall. As I put her in her stroller she wanted to know why I was belting her in. I told her I didn't want anybody to steal her. She told me she was alright because her lights were in front of her. I asked her tell me about her lights. She said, don't you see them? They are always there....

One day when I still worked as a nurse I was coming home from work and taking the back country roads home. I came up on a car with two elderly people driving about 20 miles an hour. No matter how hard I tried I could not get around them. The man driving would pull right out in front of me when I tried to go around.  I was getting pretty stressed but finally gave up, It was about a six mile ride at about 20 miles an hour... As I rode along I started to think about this and that. Up ahead I saw police lights and a tow truck. As I got closer I saw a car in a ditch and it was on my side of the road heading the wrong way. The police were not letting the cars go through till the car was pulled from the ditch. As I sat there I realized the car in front of me was gone, just gone, vanished... It had not turned off and it had been right in front of me. The first thing I thought of was that it had been angels, slowing me down so that the car would not hit me head on, it was not my time...

  1. Hi Gwen, I so look forward to reading your posts!, the first photo is amazing. me and my now husband got married 6 years ago, sadly the year before we married, my father in law died of cancer. We got married had a lovely day, tinged with he was not there with us, such a lovely man. When we had the photo's developed, there is one photo of us both, just after we said 'I do', there is a massive orb in the photograph.... I think he was there with us.
    Just because we cannot explain something scientifically, does not mean it is not happening does it? xx have a good week
