Brigitte, of the stories I have read in this contest so far, yours is the best. It is real and based upon your experiences. This lends your story a gravitas that others lack. I have heard of such coming-back-from-the-brink-of death narratives such as yours, and yours is compelling. The central question is not only "Did you hear that?" but "Why did God bring me back?" You answer, "to continue my journey of faith walking with you."

While your true story is compelling, it has minor grammar errors.

Close the gap after the quotation marks: " We're losing her,

Add a period and a hyphen: anesthesiologist were loud and clear(,) absorbed by her mind in its drug(-)induced catatonic state.

Add a blank space: "I'm breathing and living,"( )she

Your story celebrates the joy and gratitude you felt when discovering that God granted you more life so your could continue your journey of faith.

Thank you for sharing your story. I wish you much success in the contest.

A truly wonderful story, especially because it is true or based on what happened to you at some time.

It is not untrue when we speak of raith or belief "moving a mountain".

A little correction below.

My daughter said,"Mom, you died on the table and they brought you back." I told her in no uncertain terms," God brought (me) back to you, hon."

I believe it is everyone's nightmare about being awake on the table and feeling everything and hearing the conversations. I go for surgery on 21-12-17 I hope I'm well and truly asleep the entire time. Sincerely Anne

Wow, this DOES sound like unimaginable terror and angst for your poor family, not to mention YOU lying on a hospital gurney.

Sounds like a miracle to me!

I'm sure your strong faith never wavered.

Well written with a great starting sentence!

Cheers P

Oh, my gosh. What an experience. You tell it quite well so that the reader can feel the fear and horror of not being able to physically shout out NO I'm here.
Fine work.

Hi Brigitte, it sounds as if it was a close call, but whatever or whoever was looking after you that day decided it was not time for you to depart with this world just yet. Good luck in the contest. All the best. Ulla:)))

Wow!
Only by the grace of God did you manage to make it through the surgery I'm sure, Brigitte.
I awoke during my defibrillator surgery; right in the middle of the surgeon putting it inside my chest cavity.
I could feel him pushing the thing in the pocket they'd cut in my chest wall, but I felt no pain. The operating room was all abuzz with idle banter, laughter, and chit chat.
When I spoke, saying--"Uh, excuse me, I can feel that!", it got as quiet as a church during the pastor's funeral service.
I'm sure God had something to do with that too!
Great story.
I'm glad you made it! (but not as happy as you are about it, I'm quite sure, lol).

    Yes, Dean I can " hear" the silence when you spoke. God works in mysterious ways. I think hell was probably full and the Almighty wasn't ready to deal with me ( or you) yet, lol.
    Thanks for reading and your comments. Glad we are both still here; there must still be tasks to perform and words to pen in our future.
    Blessings,
