Anyone that really knows me, knows I love rainbows and butterflies. They are special signs between the Lord and me. I see them in different places…different ways…One special way he gives them to me is through greeting cards. When I lived alone, and would sometimes wish for a card from someone special, I would pick up a card from the drugstore display with a rainbow on it and say…”this is from You Lord.” It amazed me how many times what I read in the card was like it was just written for me! I haven’t done that in awhile. But about a month ago, I felt led to do it. The card I picked was this one.
I was drawn to the glittery rainbow, and the 3 trees…AND the little red bird in one of the trees. And the message on the front, “Rainbows are Love Messages From the Lord.” It was a Birthday card too!I knew it was mine!
Yesterday was my birthday, and I had a beautiful one…and in the middle of it, I took a nap…
When I woke up, I came into the den, and there was a rainbow on my floor. I have lived here for a long time, but, have never seen that before…
it was right on the carpet, the kind you get from sun going through a crystal. I took a picture of it, and then noticed there were more…and they were everywhere, all over the ceiling and walls.
The back of my house faces north, so it is rare to see sunlight through the back window…
I looked and I saw where the sun was coming from. It was reflecting off of the wings of a Swarovski Crystal Butterfly, Aurora Borealis I got last year for my birthday! I put it up there among some of my favorite things, including the card. The reflecting light was lighting up the card and putting rainbows on it. Like God was reminding me to notice it and read it again.
It was also shining on the wing of a butterfly I brought home all the way from KY the day I took my son to live there. I cried all the way home…and the light was reflecting color onto it too.
It was a glorious sight for me to see. It was very special!
God is so real and sings to us of His love all the time, if we will just stop and listen.
Stop and look…we will see His love!
