Without a doubt, the incident that has moved me the most in life was birth.
The event that most moved me was being born. It moved me from one side of the veil to this side. The next big event will be moving back again...from mortality to immortality.
you can't say anything more profound than that!
Perspycacious, If I'm not mistaken I think you mean getting free from the cycle of reincarnation. I think most of us want immortality after death in this sense. I'm with you on this.
By far the pregnancy and birth of my children. My entrance into motherhood opened up my world in so many ways. It was at this time in my life that I felt the hand of God more than ever before..
Other than my conversion to Christianity, getting hit by a car Dec. 24, 1960 during a snowball fight. It's given me a Daredevil like radar for hearing cars as I now look BOTH ways before crossing streets!
Becoming a Christian is the single event that has had the most significant impact on my life. Every day it affects my thoughts, actions and reactions to the world around me. Outside of that, I would have to say my divorce was the one event that changed me and my life. I became more intentional in every decision I made. If I had made a more careful decision regarding marriage, I would have saved myself and my children a lot of pain.
The most life changing event so far has been the attacks on 9/11 - without a doubt. Delivering my children was amazing and moving and beautiful but the loss of human life on that horrible day was more tragic and sad than anything I have ever experienced.
What has probably moved me the most probably would be when my Mother was close to death. She had been a true lover of nature and had tended to plants of all kinds all of her life. If you ever needed to find her she was in the fields working on her vegetable garden on in the yard tending to acres of flowering plants.
She passed along this love of plants and growing things to my sisters, many of her grandchildren and to me.
By the time this happened she was very fragile and unable to speak. My daughter who was 19 at the time said to her...'It's ok Grandma, you can go on now. We will take care of the plants for you.' I will always remember the day. The sparkle in Mother's eye clearly let us know she understood.
There are so many moving replies here, I guess the death of my mother moved me the most, if only I had realized what was happening and she did deserve to live longer, and nowadays certainly would have. I loved my mother very much and still do, I just wish my children loved me as much.
being alive and savoring the sight of my eldest granddaughter, Alexis, being baptised into the Body of Christ.
I would have said the birth of my three children, until my daughter went through a divorce. Nothing moves you as much as seeing one of your children hurting.
There are many with the same and bigger hurts. Christ himself was betrayed, mocked, and spit upon. It doesn't get much worse...unless they crucify you, too.
Kathleen, divorce is a terrible thing to go through and more painful if one's child has to go through it. I can understand how difficult it must have been for you.
The unexpected death of a son. While he was a young adult, to me, nothing is more tragic than a parent having to bury a child.
Most joyfull without a doubt the birth of my children. Most heartbreaking, so many desaters around the world that have have taken so many lives.
Both ends of the spectrum.
Holding my daughter for the first time was definitely a huge event for me. Before that it was getting married to my wife. Everyday, I experience something new with my child and family. They're new memories i'll treasure always.

How do you make the decision to move?Moving is difficult, time- and energy-consuming, and often expensive. What kinds of things prompt you to buckle down and do it? What kinds of things do you try to overlook?
