After the Storm: An Angel Message

 Heavy rain and thunder claps woke me up last night.  Protection prayers went out to all those little creatures caught up in stormy weather.  Rather than be fearful, I focused on the beautiful new dawn that was coming in the morning.  A special day when family will visit from out of state.  A long overdue reunion.

This morning I woke up to the sweet song of a bird outside the bedroom window.  And, later a glorious  golden-orange sunrise peeked through the trees in scintillating rays like a 4th of July sparkler.  

The storm was a distant memory.  I was not disappointed to greet the new day.

But more was to come...  

During a quiet time of reflection in the sun-room, our cat, Hei-Hei, perked up and dashed to the window.    

Curious, I took a look.

A young turkey had come calling...pecking at corn kernels on the lawn.  The first gobbler to visit this year. It's always a thrill to see a wild turkey roam free in the yard. A signal for me to give thanks for all things.   I was thankful the storm passed, and the morning was abundantly rich with the beauty of nature.

And to prove thoughts are things... no sooner did I mention missing the rabbits who haven't been around at all this spring, as if on cue, one appeared, then another, and another!  Soon there were four animated little cotton-tails hopping around the front yard.  Spring had sprung.  Renewal, rebirth, and resurrection are in the air.  Get ready. The best is yet to be.  

It's not easy to capture four rascally rabbits in action...but it goes to show there is an abundance of  hope  with our faith in Christ, the Holy Spirit and the angels. 

Love and peace,
