I am wondering what experiences others have had with odd happenings in any dwellings they ever lived in. Thus the name of this post is have you ever lived in a haunted house? Well many years ago my X and I our 2 children and newborn Son...lived in a really small town of Lodge SC. We had been living in Summerville a sweet sleepy town in SC. Well we got the hair brained idea to answer an ad to rent a house way out in the country I guess bc we had horses. We went to look at the house and it was so very old and fell in love with it! This house was in the middle of No wheres really. Sometimes I look back and wonder why'd did we do some of thing's we did! We moved our kids Kitty's and horses out there. Lodge was really a beautiful place outside the more thriving town of Walterboro. The house had big old pecan trees in the backyard. This house was made of heart pine, heart pine nowadays is illegal to use bc it is a wood made from the heart of the pine tree and highly flammable. My then husband told me if you were to put a lighter to the house it would immediately start (slowly) to take the flame. The house was darkly stained probably from weathering. It was so old the house had to be at least 125 years old. The kitchen was separated by a small bridge from the rest of the house back then I'm sure to keep the heat from the main house. Al tho the house had No secret things ie passages it was quite a majestic large old home. The house was on a corner in the middle of no wheres and I guess you could say the crows in the fall were some of our only friends when the pecans started falling! I remember how noisy they were!
But getting back to being haunted. We had been living there several months and after I would get my young kids off to school I would lie down to briefly rest bf I officially get up. My dog Cindy an Aussie stayed in the house with us. But funny how she had never barked one time. One day and this was very early in the mornings I heard the kitchen cabinet's banging as if someone was in the kitchen and was cleaning up and slammed a few cabinets shut. The sound was un mistakenly of cabinet's slamming and it was pretty creepy. And this would go on about 3 days a week. I would run as fast as I could down to the kitchen but no Nothing was ever a miss! My Daughter had been home several times and she too remembers the noise.
I had a a very close elderly Christian woman at the time tell me Janet you must anoint the doors front and back and all the door frames inside with oil and announce to "whatever" was in the house that this is "The house of the Lord and in His name I order you to get out". So I did this and stood on some Bible verses and after that the the goings on stopped. I was thankful to the Lord it stopped! Halloween is one of my most favourite holidays But for me and my house I did not want any "entity" inside of it!
Finally my husband was able to obtain work in the Charleston area again and as sweet as that old house was...it was time to leave. This is the only time I have ever lived with "something" amiss in my house!
