Dear Suzanne, thanks for replying. I believe it was from a link on this site actually. (There are other subjects to check out on the main pages). Billy's parents had written about their son and said they started experiencing these "orbs" in the pictures etc. 9 months after his accident. They then started to document these happenings and from the site you will notice that they take great comfort from this and isn't that the most important thing? I think so. It is not to worry about is it "right or wrong" but if something brings comfort to you in your grieving, then I consider that a good thing. There are so many aspects to spirituality and belief systems, and if you can draw solace from one of them, I say go ahead. I understand, some people are skeptical, I have one daughter who is actually! That is okay with me though..:)
There are also a lot of great books out there too to help along the journey to healing. I am sorry that you have to move, but I do like your thought of taking pictures of your home and pictures of your husband, I am going to try that too!
Take good care.
I am totally amazed that you know about this website. Somehow the other night I came across another website in which I requested a book by someone who I started responding with and she gave me a link to this very site. I wasn't sure whether to believe in this subject material or not but the other night this person says she believes in this. I wasn't going to tell anyone thinking everyone may think I'm crazy but I was actually considering getting a disposable camera and taking pictures of my husband's pictures because someone else told me maybe if I took pictures of my apartment (that I have to leave) at least I'll have these to remember my husband. (I don't want to move but I am being made to.) If you don't mind my asking, how did you come across this site. It really is fascinating. I am blown away by this. I don't think this is just a coincidence. There is so much awful stuff on the web, I think this is just another example of things (like the internet) can be bad, but can be good also. I'm so glad you shared this website and your thoughts. Thank you.
I have been keeping you in my prayers. Take care,
Dear Renee, that is a beautiful picture of your family, a Sweet Sixteen princess indeed, her father is so proud of her and he is right beside her, watching over her and your family. I do believe there are orbs, I have experienced something similar from my husband. While in church and having lit a candle for him, he came to me in an orb, smiling. I wish I could have taken a picture! Our loved ones are with us constantly, they are our guardian angels, loving and protecting us. There is a poem by a scottish minister written hundreds of years ago...part of it goes like this "Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well".
Henry Scott Holland, Canon of St. Pauls Cathederal, 1847-1918.
Also, there is a website, the link is www.oursonbilly.com which directly talks about orbs in pictures, from their son, who passed away in 2004. It is quite amazing, and worth a visit.
I hope you find this helpful and God Bless.
That is an amazing picture - I have seen these in pictures I have taken but never could make out a face. I can see what you are talking about though regarding the face in this picture. It is amazing! I have had many unique experiences since my husband died - I really think God must allow them to still reach out to us even though we cannot see them. I am sad to see your children are so young and without their father. I have three children as well but they are grown. I commend you for carrying on and going forward with honoring your daughter.
Keep up the good work Renee!
