Hi Sled, I was looking for the post you referenced as being on pg. 70, haven't found it yet, but did get rather 'caught up' in reading some of the
others....My, you have been rather 'busy' over the years!!
One exchange caught my interest....you and another poster were wondering about what might be 'common denominators' for folks that have multiple
experiences...We may have some in common.
I grew up in the foothills of the Appalachian Mts, in N GA. My paternal Grandmother was from just a couple of counties further north....We both have
a bit of Cherokee blood, she a bit more than I, of course, being that she was closer to the source, my GreatGreatGreat Grandfather, then there's Irish
and German on both sides.
She was a 'believer' and often shared stories of her experiences and the experiences of other family members with me when I was a child. When
'things' began to happen for me, she was so calmly matter-of-fact about them (where my Mother was not), that I was not so very 'scared' by some
things, or could at least cope with any fear that I did feel. She never doubted that what I was being truthful, and would offer cautionary advise
about revealing my experiences to other people...or dealing with a 'haint'....
She lived in a very old log house that seemed to be 'haunted' by an old man that walked the attic, what would have been the sleeping loft in his
time...He would pace across the living room ceiling, and circle the opening to the loft...a trap door in the dining room. One evening, after he'd
interrupted her Bible reading several times, she went and waited under the trapdoor with her Bible in hand.
As the foot steps approached, she demanded in a strong voice, " In the name of God, What do you want?" (She had always heard this would make a ghost
either answer truthfully, or leave .....and she'd gotten tired enough of him disturbing her to risk hearing him actually answer!~) She held her breath
as the footsteps faltered, and stopped above her head....
The next morning she told me with an almost sorrowful shake of her head, "I think I ran old Matthew off last night!"
I had hoped I'd get to see or hear him one day, but that was the last time anyone heard from him!
..Back to reading!
