Sometimes our guardian angels get creative, and our headstrong cat delivers messages if I pay attention. A few nights ago, Hei-Hei jumped up on the nightstand, and swatted something to the floor, in hopes I'd get up and feed him before dawn.
"There goes my eyeglasses." I thought, rolling over and letting it be what it is.
The next morning, I laughed at the spectacles perfect landing...positioned on an angel hatbox filled with postcards from around the world. A touch of heavenly humor...the cherub's eye was magnified through only one lens of my eyeglasses. It seemed like an angel reminder. See the world through a single lens of divine love. A magnification of God's celestial presence.
Hei-Hei was on a streak. Last week, while I was writing at my computer, focused on the screen, he tapped my shoulder several times at noon. I didn't pay attention until I heard a THUD. He swatted a rock off the windowsill, and was rolling it around the office floor.
That did it. I smiled at what caused the THUD. A yellow hand-painted HOPE rock. It had been a special "find" underneath the picnic table at the lake in 2020. HOPE. The hungry cat's HOPE was soon fulfilled. I thanked him for the HOPE angel reminder, and fed him lunch.
Later, I turned HOPE over. Psalm 31:24 was on the back. I looked up the verse. The timing seemed important.
"Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord."
Hei-Hei's name means Window. That was his name when we adopted him from the shelter four years ago.
I realized how sometimes the angels create a THUD to get my attention. A sign I could be more attentive to their helpful whispers throughout the day.
Love and peace,
