Hello. I found this post when looking into a comment made by my daughter last night.
You see, a few days ago we took her to a specialist after having made a couple of trips to our general doctor for complaints of pain in her shoulder.
The pain was worsening to the point where we no longer thought it was a sprain, bursitis or something she kept reinjuring.
The specialist ordered an MRI and we found out that the humerus bone in her shoulder was completely infiltrated with a tumor. It is speculated this
this was a very rare type of bone tumor that may or may not be a malignancy.
She has a twin sister. No other siblings than the twin. Our family is small and we were all rocked by this finding.
We are currently gathering diagnostic information and will be visiting yet another specialist in a couple of days.
Last night, out of the blue, she says: "I dunno what's up with these feathers! I have been finding random white feathers on me and out of nowhere
just appearing just in my hand, everywhere I go. It's got me kinda weirded out."
Mind you this child is 17 and has been such a trooper with this so far. She has handled it with such dignity and confidence with a positive attitude
while the rest of us are secretly falling apart at the seams with fear.
So I find this article. And a couple more that mention these feathers coming from Angels.
I am Wiccan and have formal education in theology. I don't view angels as a Christian would but I believe in the existance of spirit guides and
spirits that protect us. I am open-minded. I have been having ceremonial prayer every single day since we found this out.
In light of our situation, and the circumstances, I'll tell you what I believe:
I believe that it doesn't matter what they look like, it's how we each percieve or interpret them within ourselves and fit them into our lives.
Whether angels bear feathers, gems, skin flaps, etc....is completely irrelevant to this topic.
I belive that Spirit is with her and these feathers are signs to Her, on Her level of understanding. If the angels know that we believe they have
feathers and that is how we associate them, then that is how they will present themselves and what they will show us as a memento of their visit.
-In addition, I feel that the post that started the argument over feathers or not feathers was most disrespectful to the original poster. If you want
to speak of that, open another topic altogether or just offer your best opinion, educated or not, and let the original poster get answers and posts
from people with something compatible to it and have something to offer besides a blatant challenge to their integrity and interpretation.
