I sent a text to a friend. I wanted to encourage her and so I said, "I hope God shows you today how much He loves you and that he sees you. I hope you see a feather as a reminder." She wished the same back to me. I prayed silently to God, show my friend that you see her and you haven't forgotten her.
A couple of hours later, she sent me this text...
Feathers and Y's have been showing up everywhere! After a hard day. After a disappointing day. After a downright no- good- day-let-me-throw-in-the-towel-day.
Why they Y's you ask? What do they mean? Well, Jennifer Dukes Lee, started me on the Y's. Y is for Yahweh-God.
A few years back she started noticing the Y's. In trees, on signs, sticks, roads. You name it and she saw it. It was like God's way of reminding her that He was with her.
I picked this up on a morning walk in the woods with Trey. Yep, he thought I was crazy for picking up a stick and then even crazier after I explained what it was for. But I would not let him get rid of it! :) It now sits proudly on the window sill of our condo.
Here's just a few of the feathers I've found since this text with my friend.
God is with us, and sees us (El Roi). I hope this encourages you today to keep believing! There have been so many more feather sightings, but I stopped taking pictures of them :)
When I see them I feel like we are being surrounded and protected by angel armies, just the thought gives me chills.
