A friend posited the following question to her social media followers:
So quick poll:
Do you believe in ghosts or spirits?
I’ve had some really weird stuff happen to me that’s been witnessed by friends so I know something is out there but not sure what.
I’d love to hear your opinions!

I’m a cat guy. I’ve always been a cat guy. I’ve cared for dogs, turtles and fish, and I enjoyed loving all of them, but my heart is squarely inclined to the feline for my primary living companions.

I believe in Jesus. I’m not ashamed of the Gospel. I also believe in freedom of choice and agency. I make it a point never to force my beliefs on anyone. I hate “in your face” proselytization.

We reviewed some of the more recent ones, discussing them in detail, and he challenged me to pick one and not only do it, but to blog about it, explaining my choices. After much deliberation, I have. It definitely will make for an interesting series of articles. While I’m at it, I’ll also pass the challenge along to you.

Several times in my life I have experienced the situation in which I have been in love with a woman to the point that we exchanged a mutual commitment to pursue a relationship yet she changed her mind. Whether it was an old flame coming back into her life, her wanting to pursue someone else because they had history before finally “moving on” from that person or her finding a “better for her” soulmate, the pain that I experienced was intense. In several cases, the scar from the loss is still present and sensitive.
