A Fortune Cookie: An Angel Message


The angel messengers will use whatever medium they can to get our attention, often in unusual and thought provoking ways.  Last Sunday our carryout order from a favorite Chinese restaurant came with an unusual surprise .   The owner had tossed in a couple of fortune cookies. A touch of kindness as we had not ordered them.  After enjoying a delicious lunch on the patio at home, I discovered an extra "cookie" inside the brown bag. This packet was empty, no fortune cookie! Somehow it had been sealed in a pocket of air. 

Examining the puffy anomaly, I wondered what the quirky message might be?  Rather than being disappointed, an angel thought reminded me of the infinite invisible blessings fully present in each precious moment.  Love, peace, joy, and so forth.  The future is now, I thought, feeling grateful for a taste of heaven. 

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the 
evidence of things not seen.  
              Hebrews 11:1

Love and joyful blessings,
