I suppose this is the reason that I felt a need to drive over to the cemetery this morning....
I picked up my dad and after a small stop here and a small stop there, I headed down the road that leads to our city cemetery.
I am so thankful that I followed what my heart was leading me to do.......I pulled through the gates and as I turned the corner, and was headed toward my mom's grave, I looked up and there in front of me was a gorgeous red tree, lit up by the sun's rays. I can tell you.....there was this joyous feeling that ran all the way through me.
It was as if all of Heaven was beaming across the cemetery. This particular tree illuminated my soul. I felt a sense of warmth and Peace. It was one of those "Just Because Moments" from God.
I know that the visual scene set before me was not by accident....... God knew the range of emotions that I've been carrying around this past week.....HE knew my heart and my spirit was longing for one of my mom's big hugs........ Before she passed away, my mom would often give me one of her big ol' hugs, and her words were ALWAYS...."Everything's gonna be ok"...... Those particular words, along with the warmth of her arms being wrapped around me, made me feel as if I could conquer all things.....
There is nourishment for the soul when we feel loved!
Anyways.......I hope that somehow, my words and the expression of my morning will be a blessing to you in some kind of way.
May you see the "Just Because" messages from God......in your day!!!
