marvelling in the beautifully warm day that God has given to us.
it began with some rain showers
today while I was outside I heard the sound of a Blue Jay
and saw it ~ the first Blue Jay sighting on this land this spring
Blue Jays are "kisses" from God to me
just like the little fuzzy yellow caterpillars are also little blessings in disguise.
God is like that
I believe anyhow - that He loves to give us little glimpses of himself through creation
and I am thankful.
this past week has been a week deep in reflection.
it began with my coffee with Jo
and our discussion about life - about gifts/blessings - about hard stuff
Josie lets me go there alot with her
and I appreciate that we can still talk to others about our journey these past 2.5 years.
while drinking coffee at Tim Horton's
a little boy came over to our window
a cute little guy
and when I asked his mom how old he was
I was right .... he was the age our little Jay would have been
I watched him and felt our loss deeply
the other day I reflected on losing my mom 15 years ago
and how the thought of her being in heaven with our Jay brought me comfort
the constant tension of heaven and earth
plays out often in my thoughts
and my imagination
this song that I share with you today
has resonated with my heart since the first time I heard it
I think you will know why,
if you read the lyrics
song written and sung by Laura Story
