I know this is Wordless Wednesday, but I felt like the pictures required a bit of an explanation.
For awhile now I have been asking the Lord to give me a thing that is just Emily's. For instance some people think about their baby when they see a frog or a butterfly. I did not have this for Emily and really wanted something, but did not just want to come up with something. Well, today I got that thing.
It was inside the house. just walking on the window. And there was really no way it could have gotten in the house, so I know it was a God Thing.
Just after I got off the phone with both of my friends (see the previous post) it started to rain here. It seemed kind of fitting to me that it was raining today after the horrible news of the afternoon. But after dinner tonight guess what was in the sky? That's right a rainbow, and not just one rainbow, there were two. Rainbows are an amazing occurrence. I am in awe of them each time I see them.
I believe God uses nature and friends to bless and minister to us. Today besides that lady bug and the rainbows, I also received a visit from a friend. She brought me such a beautiful gift. I am so thankful for her thoughtfulness. I was so touched by this simple gesture. And I love the gift.
The round one with the stones is Emily's birthstone (the ruby), the next piece says faith on it, and the third piece is a mother holding a baby.
God shows us mercy and grace when we need it most. Today He knew I was going to need comfort and encouragement, and I know that He already had these "God Things" in place before the events of the day unfolded.
Despite how sad I am over the events of the day, I have an amazing peace.
