Take time to notice small things

I've been looking at this fence nearly 2 years now. And only a couple of days ago noticed this. I had been praying, my faith was feeling shaken. I happened to look at the fence, and for the first time, noticed this. A sign to me? I took it as one and felt my faith begin to strengthen. We go through life not noticing details. Maybe we notice them when we need them. Just wanted to share.

And this sunset taken from Mom's room. Beautiful.

Have a wonderful weekend.

The signs are always around us, just usually we are too busy to pay any attention, but they stay there, till we need to see them, till we need our faith to be strengthened.
Keep your faith, we are holding you in our thoughts and prayers wish we were closer so we could wrap you in a big hug,

Ben, Sue & Family xxx

Maybe it wasn't there before? There are many powers we don't understand. I feel healing strength from the picture you posted holding your mom's hand. We are thinking of you.

Some time we are so into our own thoughts that we don't notice simple things around us.
That sunset is beautiful!
Take care

I think the signs are there when we need to see them most. Here's a prayer someone sent Mommy when she was going into the hospital...

Gracious God, give us the grace we need to handle the pressures we face today, and allow those pressures to open a window to your presence with us in all things.

Lots of love,

Petey, Mica and Mommy

You never know what you will notice on any given day. There are reasons that we do not understand, but just must except.

That arrow on the fence is a sign to me that Somebody is hearing every word you say and wiping every tear you cry. Keep looking up, for his path will lead you home.
