Q: What is your earliest memory? Why do you remember it?
At age six, I was sitting in church with my mother on Easter. A light ray shined on me through the window and I heard a voice, which I knew was God, say, “No matter what, you are loved.” Frightened, I turned to my mother and asked, “Did you see that?” to which she replied, “I didn’t see anything.” For years I wondered if it had really happened or if it was just my imagination. Thirty-six years later, at church for my son’s Confirmation, I found myself watching a hand-shaped cloud that had suddenly appeared in one of the skylights above the sanctuary. As I watched, the “hand” opened, shining a ray of light on me that was so bright, I had to close my eyes. Again, I heard the words, “You are loved.” Crying, I turned to my husband and asked, “Did you see that?” to which he answered, “Yes.” There was no denying the experience this time, and being able to share it with my husband made it even more meaningful.
Q: Anything else?
A: Spiritual growth is about the journey. There are plenty of signs from God on the path to enlightenment: “Stay on Path,” “Yield” to God, know when to “Stop” and rethink your direction, “Proceed When Clear,” and always remember that when “Help (is) Wanted,” you simply need to “Inquire Within.”
