every once in awhile, you see something that you know was meant to be seen. sorry if that doesn't make sense, but hang with me for a minute and it'll (hopefully) all come togetrher.
the pastor of the church i attend, lost his mother a few years ago. and, for anyone that's lost their mom, you know that mother's day can be tough. as our minister reminenced from the pulpit about his mother's potato salad, a large yellow butterfly floated back and forth across the window. you know what they say about butterflies... and with the fact that it was yellow (like potato salad), i took it as a sign that his mom was letting him know she was there.
so, i made a mental note to tell him about it after the sermon. and while during the sermon when he mentioned sitting on his mother's lap & that same butterfly appeared again... just let me tell ya, goosebumps!
you see, the minister couldn't see the window because he faces the congregation. but from where i sit, the window is straight ahead, allowing me full view of the beauty that appears on the outside. and on this day, my preacher's mother appeared not once, but twice as a delicate butterfly.
i could hardly wait til the preachin' was over because i was so excited about the butterfly. when i finally had the chance to tell him, his eyes filled with tears. for me, it was another goosebump moment.
have you ever received a sign like that? not a "here's your sign" kind of moment but, a sign that someone was somehow letting you know that they were there.
