It never ceases to amaze me how many excellent analogies are out there awaiting our notice, and how timely some of them can be.
Once again something landed in my inbox and for the umpteenth time I thought, I have to share this! And here it is:
Sometimes when we purchase a few apples and we take them home to enjoy we may find that one of the apples does not look the same as the other apples. Our first bet is to throw it out, basing it on it’s bruises. But if we only take a moment to cut it open we would realize how perfect the inside is. You see, we are all so different in our outside appearances, but most times we need to look through our hearts, and not through our eyes.
One of my great-granddaughters loves owls so whenever I come across one of these wise old birds I take notice. But is an owl really that wise? It appears that he lags behind other birds, particularly ravens, in having the smarts, but the message today sounds wise to me. Happy Saturday.
On Thursday I picked up a library book, Memories of Heaven, by Dr. Wayne Dyer (one of my favorite authors) and Dee Garnes, who was his assistant at one time. It is a collection of short stories about very young children remembering where they were before they were born. It is a fascinating and easy read.
Many of the related memories are of being with God and choosing the parents they wanted to be born to. Some are of being here for a short time in another life and deciding to leave at an early age, (child deaths). Some related to changing their minds in the womb and not completing their journey, (miscarriages).
Because I have an open mind about so many things it is easy for me to read this book and consider the possibilities of these tiny testimonies. Besides, when my youngest son was just over two years old, he suddenly stated during a nap time, “I died you know, Mommy.”
I had had a miscarriage three years before he was born.
It makes it easy to wonder where am I from? Happy Saturday.
There are so many things on the face of this earth that are unexplainable, unbelievable, and out of the ordinary. I love when I stumble on one of them like this beauty. This is the caption that accompanied it: Can you believe how beautiful this bird is – God does good work!!! If God cares this much about a bird, can you only imagine how much he loves us. Just look at those colors! Happy Saturday.
