Archives For the other side

Do people speak from the other side?

Well, I never thought so.

Missy and Jamie Caulk But, I want to share with you this incident that happened to me a few months after Jamie died. For those that know me in real life, face to face they will tell you I am not a mystical type of person. Far from it.

But, this happened so I want to tell you about it.

One day a few months after Jamie died, a friend I had not seen or talked to in 30 years called me. Her son had died a year before.

I was sitting in my car talking to her because we have five dogs, and I knew if I opened the garage door they would all start barking and I didn’t want to interrupt the conversation since it had been so many years since we had spoken.

In the course of the conversation, I mentioned, “I just wish I could talk to Jamie one more time.”

She told me she went to a medium to talk to her son and if I wanted she would give me her number so I could call her.

I was silent.

I said, “Listen, I don’t judge you at all, we all have to do what we have to do to cope. But, I believe if God wants Jamie to speak to me he will.

We finished our conversation 30 minutes later and agreed to stay in touch.

February Ann Arbor, Michigan, is freezing cold and when I walk into my house, I walk in via the garage, through the kitchen and to the front coat closet and hang my coat up. (I do not my kids)

I walked back into the kitchen and heard “Hi Mom”.

Andrew and Jamie CaulkI called out to my son Andrew, “Andrew, I didn’t know you were home,” as I walked over to the couch in the Great room to talk to him.


Andrew wasn’t on the couch, so I then walked back to the basement door and called Andrew’s name.

He wasn’t there.

Andrew was not home.

“JAMIE, it’s you isn’t it?”

I stood there frozen. I had cold chills running all over my body.

I knew it Jamie, it was an audible voice, I heard it with my ears and not in my heart.

No one was home.

I had prayed to have a dream about Jamie, many of my friends and Jamie’s friends had dreams but I had not. I still have not had one dream. As I said I am not a mystical person.

Jamie of course is not really in the grave, he is more alive than ever in heaven. His body lies in the grave, asleep waiting for the Resurrection of dead. On that day everyone who has gone before us, will arise and meet the Lord in the air. (1 Cor 15:13, “But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.”

Some people rise to everlasting life and some to eternal damnation. The resurrection of the dead will be simultaneous both of the just and the unjust (Dan. 12:2; John 5:28, 29; Rom. 2:6-16; 2 Thess. 1:6-10).

Have you ever had anything similar to this happen to you?
