Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday

Okay, so much for wordless. How about a Wordy Wednesday? My 84 year old mom had to have emergency surgery a couple of Saturdays ago. My husband and I left SC to drive the three hours to get to the hospital in NC. The doctor prepped my dad and mom that anything could happen in surgery. Let's just say several of us in the family were scared.

Mom was already in surgery before we got to the hospital. The surgery was to take a couple of hours. We had talked to daddy who reported they had found the problem. We breathed a sigh of relief. But she still wasn't done with surgery. We pulled into the hospital parking lot and started walking across it. A hawk flew directly over us. Its huge shadow made me look up to follow it. Straight into the sun. As I shielded my eyes from the direct sun to keep watching the bird, I saw a rainbow around the sun. There was only a haze and I was floored. Of course, I had my camera in hand and took this shot.

But, oh the peace I had. I knew mom would be okay. And an hour later, she emerged from surgery, ready to start her recovery!

That rainbow was a reminder of God's love. And now I share it with you.

  3. God does communicate with us through various signs and wonders. All we have to do is take notice in the little things around us. I'm so glad you were attentive and noticing. God is good! I hope and pray that your mother continues to recover well.

  6. Amazing how He uses His creation to get His message across. Glad you slowed down a moment and saw it. I can't help but wonder how many "signs" I miss because I'm so into my own worries/stress/concerns. Glad your mom is doing well.

  7. Think about it Karen. God had to send a hawk and his shadow to catch my attention (ADOS - AD ohh shiny!)to have me look straight up into the sun...to see the rainbow. And mom is going home in a couple of days!!! God is good.
