In 2008 I was in a prayer meeting at a local non-denominational mega church, you know with a band playing, (for those of you who don't believe, please hang in here with me). I was deeply in prayer when a vision began in my mind. It started with swirling light blue smoke and resolved into me standing in a large room that looked like a high school gym dance with a disco ball shining sparkly lights on the wall. I could still hear the music the band was playing. As I watched, the walls faded and I realized the stars were real and that I was looking through huge viewing windows out into space. I was stunned at the beauty of the massive pink, orange and yellow clouds, and how the stars in the distance shown through the clouds. It was so real I can't describe how overwhelming it was. As it faded, I saw 3 pink roses being slid across a surface towards me, and suddenly I'm back in my body kneeling in thar prayer service. Several weeks later I was in a major bookstore that we all know and love, and I was browsing through large coffee table books and picked up one on astronomy. As I was flipping through it, I stopped in shock on a double page spread of exactly what I'd seen. When I checked the caption it said that it was a photo of Orion. I started researching Orion and several months later on a Saturday was flipping channels and found an AA program on and the subtitle was Orion. Thinking that was bizzarre, I sat down and watched it and was completely blown away. I've been trying to reconcile my faith and unwavering belief in God through my experience of Him. Orion is significant to God and mankind. Why? Is that place a link to him? Is it a link to our past? Is God over all things, even beings more powerful than we are? How does all of history and religion and God fit together? All I know is I'm certain it does.
