Well here's my story
December of 2013 myself and my husband decided we wanted to follow Christ... to walk his path as best as we could (we both decided internally at the same time w/o saying anything to the other so obviously we were on the same wavelength :-)
We stopped smoking (we were light smokers), stopped drinking (maybe twice a year a Beam and coke and margarita respectively LOL), threw out our porn, no more swearing, no more passing judgement (we are still working hard on this), attend church and pray several times daily.
We also will be helping the unfortunate (though we ourselves are basically poor and I am disabled in a wheelchair we still have more than others).
Boils down to we want Christ as our whole lives, we want to walk his path how he wants us to. About 2 to 2 1/2 mos ago I started asking for an angel to guard and protect us and our home (and those of our families) and my husband during his deep prayer time (in the mornings) he also asks for an angel.
Not soon afterwards our cat started jumping on the chair you see in the picture and just stare very hard at the opposite wall of where he is looking at in the pic (to the left). He would just stare. No bugs, webs, hair, shadows, etc... we checked, wiped, etc. So we put it as God heard my prayer and sent us an angel because our cat does this almost every single night.
Then about 1 1/2 mos ago we purchased the picture of Christ you see there in the pic. Not soon after our cat jumped on the chair and just stares at Christ's face. He is not looking at the glass or the frame or any shadows... the only reflection he could see (my husband checked lol) is the white of our ceiling. The thing is is he STARES! Some nights he switches sides, he will stare at the Angel in the opposing corner and then at Christ.
Now here is the strange thing! Cat does this EVERY SINGLE NIGHT during the same time frame (1015-11p) which coincides w/my deep prayer time. I head to the bathroom (because it's a half bath and thus small and I close the door and it's dark and very quiet and peaceful there) He goes to the chair and does his staring when I am done w/my praying EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!
Last night was the strangest. When I headed into the bathroom to pray he was sitting in his box sleeping. When I came out he was up and standing by the couch. He turned and looked at me and headed to that chair. My husband said as soon as I went into the bathroom for prayers cat went under the picture on the floor this time and stared up at it and did his whining meow.
I rolled over to the bed (I'm disabled) and the cat jumped on the bed by me. We have a beautiful cross on our wall that says 'as for me and my house we will serve the Lord" Our cat has never paid it any mind but tonight he comes and sits next to me (I'm still in my wheelchair because he is sitting on my side of the bed) He is staring at the cross. Then his eyes keep flitting all over the place. They come back to the cross and he stares then eyes flit all over. He does this for a couple of minutes and then goes to the end of the bed and plops down and stretches out. I climb into bed and I start commenting to my husband how cute the cat looks
stretched out there (he's a gorgeous blond Maine Coon) we are still just amazed at what we have been seeing. I can't remember what I say but all of a sudden the cat's head springs up and he stares at the cross, next thing we know he is jumping up and leaps to the couch and heads straight for the chair where he jumps up there and starts staring at Christ's face again
He never just randomly heads there...No sniffing around or wandering... he always goes w/a purpose, especially last night.
My friend from church says he is praying but my husband wonders if he can see a spiritual warfare going on and is watching it. We don't know but I do know that should the day he stops doing that I will get worried. I feel like the Lord has blessed us. We have tried getting video but because it only happens at night it's dark in that corner so my husband is going to put a gaming camera (w/infrared) there tonight to see if that will capture it. My husband has said he's woken up at 4-430a on some nights and the cat is still on that chair staring. We don't know if he got off at any time up to that point but he is apparently there periodically into the early morning hours.
What are your thoughts? I get scared when husband mentions spiritual warfare because I feel like it might be for me as it's always after I pray and sometimes randomly I get very irritable w/o any sign.
(and btw we were going to weeknight service last night and I was trying to get ready and just ready to scream at the drop of a hat because my hair wasnt' going right, my shoes were being butts. Kept telling my husband maybe God doesn't want me to go to church. I go to the door and open it to wheel myself out on the ramp. My husband comes out to get me down the ramp and closes the door behind him. I'm down the ramp and he goes to get the keyes to the car and the keys are locked in the house. We have no way of getting back in the house. Neither of us turned the little lock on the doorknob (I know I especially didn't) so we had to miss church while he drilled off the
knob to get us back into the house and then change the lock out. by the time this is all done we are welllllllll past the start of the service :-( and it takes 25 mins to get there)
(I need help on how to post the pic of the cat and the pic of Christ.. can anyone help?)
