Carolyn M's ADC

Experience description:  

  Let me give background. Darryl suffered terrible in his 43 years. Raped at 12, then the anxiety attacks so severe he would pass out. Terrible depressions throughout his life then. He was probably Bi-Polar but never diagnosed. Doctors just gave him pills that seemed to help for a while but always let him down again.   In the first weeks and months after Darryl's death. I prayed constantly to God to understand how Darryl suffered and couldn't help himself. Darryl was so loving and kind he even carried spiders outside rather than kill them.

  It was the end of the day, I was on the computer looking at his pictures as I always did. But this time one of the pictures looked funny. It was taken at night so the background was black. I have the capability to magnify a picture or part of a picture so I enlarged part of the picture to 400%. There was a perfect drawing of a sheep. It was perfectly drawn as with a charcoal and was right over Darryl's head. Since Jesus called his followers sheep, I understood then that Jesus had welcomed Darryl home as one of his own.

  In the morning, I was in a rush to get on the computer and see the picture again. But it was gone. I understood then that it was given to me  just that once to let me know Darryl was with Jesus.
