I had my conversion experience at my Confirmation when I was 16. It was the best day of my life, and my life has been forever changed because of if. Beforehand, I was ready to leave the Church, but then I did a complete 180 after the Holy Spirit helped me that day.
So, here’s the part that I’m wondering about:
Before my Confirmation (at home), I had smelled the smell of fresh flowers, even though there weren’t any around. I strongly associate the smell of flowers with my late grandmother’s wake and funeral. Usually that smell makes me sad, but this time the smell just made me remember her. I took note of this because my grandmother was the reason I was even ever Baptized in the first place. - Confirmation would never have happened without her.
So… I just made the shocking realization that I was Confirmed on the same day as my grandmother’s wake (where the flowers were), only 7 years later.
Is this just a coincidence? Could the smell of flowers have been my imagination? Could this mean my grandmother is in Heaven? Am I just being superstitious?
