MYSTERY

Ok, so there are some weird things going on at my house. Seriously! First of all, let me say that I am not crazy. LOL. Well, for the most part anyway.

The "weird things" started a few weeks ago.  It sort of began with some random weird noises like hearing doors open, but when I would check on them, they would be closed. Whatever, that kind of thing is easily explained. However, several weeks ago, I was in my bathroom getting ready to take a shower. I turned the shower on and waited for the water to get hot. I was standing there waiting when all of a sudden the shower turned off. I mean completely off. I stood there thinking, oh my gosh! I didn't pay the water bill! So I pulled back the shower curtain to turn the knobs off, but they were off. So I turned the shower back on and it worked just fine. The actual knobs were off when I checked. Weird right?

Today, I was loading the dishwasher and I realized that one of my pots was in there that wasn't suppose to be in there. I have this pot that I use for oil to fry won ton's. Yes, we eat won ton's enough that I keep the pot of oil in the oven so it's ready when I need it. Last night, I had take the pot out of the oven so I could bake a pizza. I usually just put it on the back of the stove until I am done with the oven. Well last night, I left it on the stove.  Somehow between last night and this morning, the pot (without the oil) got put in the dishwasher. So I started asking questions - I asked Brad, the kids, my mom. No one had touched the pot, let alone knew where the oil went. I really feel if the kids had messed with it, there would have been a mess to clean up.  Brad wouldn't have known what to do with the oil, and my mom wasn't here when the debacle took place. LOL. Weird, right?

There are other instances - like I heard Julianna's bedroom door open (it creaks really bad) and I heard her walk down the hall. I got up to check on her and she was sound asleep in her bed.  Weird, right?

One more example. The other day we were preparing to leave the house. I went through turning off lights. I went in the den and turned off the one lamp we use. There are two lamps in there, but one of them never gets used. It's one of those tall halogen lamps. The kids can't reach the switch to turn it on. I went through the whole house. My house was dark when we left, except for the porch light. When we got home later, as soon as pulled in the drive way, I realized there was a light on in the den. So I came inside and it was the lamp that never gets turned on. I asked the kids about it, and they confirmed what I thought, they couldn't reach the switch. I asked Brad, but he had not been home. Weird, right?

There are a couple of possibilities: a) I am seriously losing my mind. Like full blown hallucinations. LOL. b) I am sleep walking. c) I have a ghost. HAHA.

My husband is annoyed that I am "concerned" about our recent events. LOL. It's just all so weird!!!

Oh my! You are handling this so much better than I would!! That's crazy! I would need someone with me all the time if I had turned the water on and it turned off while I was waiting for it to heat up.

I'm going with ghost.

And I don't even believe in them! :)

oooohh, I know this is an older post, but I'm playing catch-up on your blog right now.

This one is creepy! I'm not sure what it is. I don't believe in real ghosts as the world perceives them... but I do believe in spirits and that Satan uses ghosts and the supernatural to reel people into his web and even scare them. So I would absolutely take authority over these happenings and any spirits that may be lingering. I also don't know if you have any artifacts from foreign countries, masks, etc... but I heard a teaching from a world traveling missionary about how some of these artifacts are literally infused with satanic spirits and curses purposefully by the tribes or people they are made by. Scary stuff. If so, I would get them out of your house. I don't want to creep you out with my stories here either. But I do want to remind you that you have authority over the enemy and any spirits he may bring in your home. Don't take it lightly, PRAY!!! Remember that we have authority over Satan in Jesus' name and that the enemy is UNDER our feet. He HAS to leave if you cast him out. It's an 'icky' thought, I know. But I wouldn't take any chances. I would also get rid of anything (you may or may not have) that pertains to witches and wizardry. God tells us clearly in the Bible not to mess with any of this stuff. Even the seamingly innocent versions. Satan uses them to 'get in' so-to-speak. Harry Potter comes to mind, as an example. I have heard of many stories how Satan has used this avenue to enter in.

Okay, sorry to go off on you here. But this was really concerning to read, so I just wanted to help if I can!

Hang in there and know I'm praying for you, too!!

Hugs,
Tanya
