Ever since I was a girl, I've thought of sunbeams as a visible sign of God. Like He's reaching down from Heaven to touch the face of His creation.
But, I only ever see sunbeams shining down through cloud, or trees.
I sat in my car yesterday on a perfectly ordinary day, at a perfectly ordinary stop light. Everything I saw with my eyes was perfectly ordinary.
I turned on my phone. It was still on the camera function. This is what I saw.
I lowered the phone. I looked around. Nothing. I raised the phone. Sunbeams. I lowered it. Nothing. I raised it. Sunbeams.
"Whaddup, God? Message received. Thanks."
May God grant you always...
a sunbeam to warm you,
a moonbeam to charm you,
a sheltering Angel
so nothing can harm you.
Laughter to cheer you.
Faithful friends near you.
And whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you.
Just as there comes a warm sunbeam into every cottage window, so comes a love - born of God’s care for every need.
