As I have been thinking about the visions in my life, I began to think about one evening when we had a local author, Mary Grace, here to talk about her book Communion of Saints: Talking with God and Grandma. One of the things she talked about was asking for a sign from those who have transcended. I remember asking for a sign of my mother’s presence as she is one of the people I miss most in my life.
What happened the next 24 hours was nothing short of the presence of the Divine. I was looking at the front cover of the book and all I could see were my mother’s rugelach where the candles were. That night I woke up several times during the night smelling cinnamon coming out of the oven. I would wake up and walk down the hallway thinking I had left the oven on, but it was off. I checked all my candle warmers thinking I had put cinnamon melts in my warmers, but I had not. So I came to the realization it was you sending something I would recognize as my mom letting me know she was with me. So thank you.
There have been other times, I have experienced your presence, not necessarily in something I saw but just knew. Like the day I was sitting at the computer and I felt all the blood drain out of my body. I knew that Hutch had just died. I called Jeanette and she said I knew you would know.
I remember when I was house sitting for Lu and I could hear her writing in her journal while she was on the beach, hundreds of miles away. I also remember the look on her face when I told her what I had heard.
I know that when I stop and am open to visions, signs and symbols they will come. So help me to continue to be present that I might experience your guidance and direction in every step of my walk.
