I absolutely believe that God gives us signs of his presence in our lives. I have blogged about the night Eli was born and the thunderstorm that came up after he passed away. I also blogged about tulips and their meaning. Winks...Signs...call them what you will. I think they are from God.
Weather is one of those things that is not always predictable, but the weather people do a pretty good job of letting us know what to expect. This time last week, I believe, the forecast was calling for a 30 % chance of rain Sunday and Monday. As the weekend drew nearer the chances of thunderstorms increased significantly. Until there was a 100 % chance on Sunday night into Monday. You might ask, "why on earth is she talking about rain chances in the past?" Well, you probably know that I went back to work this week and I was really stressed about it. As the week went on I became more and more worried about it. Sunday night was very tense around my house and guess what? The thunderstorms rolled in about 4:00 Monday morning. It rained all day Monday. My sweet sister sent and email to me at work. She said that while she was driving in to work amidst all the rain she imagined that Eli was smiling down at me and letting me know that he was with me. That is how I felt also. I felt God's presence with me yesterday and Eli's also. The rain was such a sweet reminder.
The rain ended late yesterday afternoon and the sun actually peeked out from the clouds around the time it was to set. My little Lucie Rose drew our attention to the amazing sunset. It was absolutely stunning.
