Speaking to my heart

Today was the first time since my surgery that I took Argyle out for his morning walk
The past ten days have been difficult for me spiritually, emotionally, and physically. I find myself worrying about our future, family, finances, where I fit in the grand scheme of things and often, the tears flow.

But leave it to our Lord to allow only a smattering of self-loathing before He intervenes–sometimes it is the small things that wake us up, a smile from a stranger, a kind word from a friend, a surprise in the mail, and other times, like this morning–it only required me going outside and paying attention.

I could not help but remember St. Faustina when I saw the rainbow coming straight down from a cloud onto the snow below. It was in the field across the street, I stood and stared and knew, it was Him. Deep within my spirit, I heard His voice saying, “I have great plans for you. All is well.”

After I hobbled in to get the camera, I heard the voice again and remembered the passage from Jeremiah 29:11. Immediately, I was filled with hope, anticipation and comfort. Thanks be to God

“For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare, not for woe! plans to give you a future full of hope.”

  1. Those winter rainbows are amazing, aren't they? I believe they are called 'snow dogs'. Kind of an ugly name for something so incredibly beautiful, so clearly a sign of God's presence and His deep love. Maybe we could change the letters positions and come up with something new, like 'God now'?

    Anyway, all the best to you in your recovery. Thank you for sharing this uplifting experience and for the wonderful pictures! And, thanks for all that you do to support the MPRP!


  2. Thanks so much Anne, I thought that's what they were called, but this was the first time I had seen one that traveled all the way to the ground, it was amazing! You are right God now, sounds much better! Thanks for your encouragement and congratulations on your new position with Roses for Our Lady! God bless all that you do
