You’ve heard the saying “We should have seen the signs”? Well, I happen to believe that the signs are out there. Sometimes, we’re too busy to notice them. Or we see them, but just don’t understand them. Or we don’t believe in them.
I’m sure we’ve all thought of someone right before the phone rings and it’s that person. Or your “gut” tells you what to do. Maybe there’s a vivid dream the night before something similar happens. In my opinion, there are signs leading up to all of these events. Sometimes we can pinpoint them, sometimes not.
I recently found out that a family member is having some issues with his heart. He is going to have a procedure tomorrow to hopefully determine what is going on and how extensive the issue may be. He has been on my mind a lot. He lives far away and I can’t be with the family during this time. So of course, my prayers and good thoughts are being sent to them.
Today, while sitting on the porch watching the early morning activities this family member was on my mind again. At that moment, my husband and I saw one bright ray of sun peek through the clouds above. That beam of light was bright as bright could be and happened to be shaped like a beautiful heart.
Call me silly, but I took this as an encouraging sign. A sign that his heart will still shine bright. A sign that he will be just fine. We had sat on that porch a million times and never has there been a ray of light like that one. And I doubt that there ever will be again.
Being aware of what is going on around you can not only open your world, but maybe, just maybe you’ll “see the signs” that surround you. Even if you don’t believe in signs, the awareness can certainly bring some beautiful things to your life. Free your mind and open your heart to the possibilities.
