When life is difficult and all we can do is take one day at a time, and sometimes one step at a time. Even one moment at a time.... there is always hope.
I had such an experience a year or two ago. My family had suffered a sad, unexpected loss.
I was searching for some meaning and comfort through it all.
I happened to be wandering around the garden and looked up, and there it was a dove perched in the tree. A beautiful, peaceful bird. Never before had we been visited by such a bird. He stayed all day.
The next day he was stilll there. After a while he flew away for part of the day. For increasing periods he did this until he finally left and never returned. He was our guest for about three weeks.
