OK --- I probably get to "upset" about white lights appearing too easily, but this one was different.
So many times in the past, I'd see white lights in my darkened bedroom -- but so many times it can be easily assumed to be the headlights of passing cars or something. Maybe.
Perhaps I've been a little paranoid, having been LDS and having stories of the angel Moroni appearing in Joseph Smith's bedroom, I don't know what the actual truth about all this is, but I've been very quick to notice white lights and lights being where lights shouldn't actually be.
So, this early morning, between 2am and 2:30am, I was laying in bed, sleepless, and prayed to God a bit about "God, what do you want for me in life? What do you want me to do?"
I eventually got out of bed, grabbed a drink from my bar fridge, and headed upstairs to make sure no one left the TV on overnight.
I drank some of my drink, and then put that in the upstairs fridge for another time. Then, surrounded in darkness, I headed back down the stairs.
I stepped down the top half of the stairs, down to our front door, and reached a landing. I turned around to head down to the basement and my bedroom.
And that's when I saw it.
A BIG BRIGHT WHITE LIGHT!!!!!! (I am not joking).
But, this big bright white light, having been discovered by me, quickly disappeared as suddenly as I discovered it, leaving me in the darkness.
I mean --- that just doesn't happen.
Most of my white light stories are when I'm laying in my darkened bedroom, but this one appeared to be white and bright and filled the downstairs landing/library with its brightness, and as soon as I realized what I was seeing it just magically vanished and disappeared.
That is so strange. Was it GOD? An angel? A Ghost? What could possibly explain that big bright light I just saw moments ago??? There were no lights turned on down here.
It was there, and then it was gone. I saw it.
It most definitely was not headlights from a passing car - that would be a probably wrong explanation here.
It was something. Very strange. Freaky. And interesting to note considering the recent deaths of two LDS apostles and how I see my own life relationship to that.
