I'll go against the crowd. I don't know that it was a sign that she is in heaven. I think God was trying to comfort her, but I don't see how the girls bringing flowers shows that her sister is in heaven I think people want to see signs from God, but that doesn't mean that it is a sign. It could be, but not necessarily.

I call those little moments of peace, joy and comfort "God mail" meaning that he is the sender of peace, hope, comfort and love when we need it the most.

Coincidence or a sign????

I was only about 6 or 7 when this happened and I remember it like it was yesterday. I can remember every single detail about it. I think that's odd in itslef because its not easy to remember things that happened when you were a young child.
That is a very sweet story.

I have had some "signs" of my own along the way. I just COULD NOT explain them no matter how hard I tried. I analyzed, and pondered, and scrunched my face up, but sometimes they would "DOUBLE" up, and then...........

I believe "something" is out there. It picks up on whatever may be going on around us and influences strangers to do things they would not normally do. And, maybe not just human strangers.

I don't doubt that it was an answer to prayer. Such a lovely story.

No, it wasn't a sign. I used to do goofy stuff like that all the time as a
kid, just to see what reaction people would have.

Obviously no one will ever be able to conclusively prove it, but I think you know it was a sign.

In my personal experience, God communicates with us in mundane ways. Not to say he can't or won't communicate with us in extraordinary ways, but most of the time it's not that way.
