Yesterday an afternoon cloud burst opened up the sky with a sudden downpour. The curtains on the porch were closed to keep out the hot sun when I thought I heard the onset of a gush of heavy rain drops. Every day this summer has brought relief. I'm so thankful that the grass, trees and flowers are at their best without any help from me and my hose.
Later when the sun was breaking through the blue sky again, I opened the white porch curtains to take a look. What timing! As I looked up, what should be looking down at me? Perched on a high wire by the house, a young red tailed hawk met my surprised gaze. His feathers were soaked from the rain, so much so, at first glance I thought he was a fuzzy headed owl. But a closer look, with my phone camera, revealed one of my favorite nature messengers. A juvenile red hawk. "Hawk medicine teaches you to be observant ...Life is sending you signals."*
Early this morning, 7/11. more synchronicity was at play. I opened the daily inspiration for July 11 (7/11) from God Calling by Two Listeners (edited by A.J. Russell.)
What a surprise that the subject title for today is Guardian Angels!
"You are Mine. Once I have set on you My stamp and seal of ownership all my Hosts throng to serve and protect you.
Remember that you are daughters of a King.
Try to picture a bodyguard of My servitors in the Unseen waiting, longing, efficient, to do all that is necessary for your well-being.
Feel this as you go through the day. Feel this and all is well."
The timing brought a smile, that again, more is happening than I can presently understand. I am grateful for the confirmation of silently acknowledging the guardian angel of all those who cross my path. Not that I always remember, but the more I do it, the easier it becomes.
Enjoy your day with your Guardian Angel!
Love and joyful blessings,
