One of the ways in which the ether tells you that it is time to wake up is by singing to you. You don't realize that the ether is singing, you just know that you wake up happy. On Wednesday morning this past week, I woke up happy because God Almighty told my spirit to "Wake up strong." I don't know why I needed to hear that, but I did notice that my will was on the dresser table next to me. I had never placed it there because a will is something you keep in a safe place. Someone knew where it was, and decided to make life easy for my relatives. Perhaps they intended to make it seem as though I had committed suicide.
I do know that when I awakened I had skin burns all over my body. I was later told that they looked suspiciously like radiation burns, but also could signal drug overdose. I don't do drugs, and never have because I am a devout Christian, and a Catholic priest. I live alone, but not in a rectory, so the only people who would have been calling to inquire are my family. I thank God that they have been spared the shame of thinking that I had committed suicide, or overdosed on drugs. I thank God for life, in Jesus' name. I thank God for hope and love and faith. I thank God for Jesus, who has made life bearable.
