When you wake up in the morning feeling good, you know it is going to be a good day.On my drive to work at 7:30 a.m., the sun is coming up over the horizon.It is so beautiful.I thank God to be alive.
Have you ever found yourself in that spot where you have this overwhelming feeling of peace? Like you wish it would never end?I believe when we get that feeling, it is God standing beside us, to let us know that there is that peace awaiting us, if we just believe and have faith.
I was talking to my daughter one day and she was telling me how her trip to Toronto was. She said
"Mom!, I was walking down this quiet street with Alyssa; the leaves were softly falling off the trees. The wind was so warm and Alyssa was rolling around in the leaves, then all of a sudden this feeling came over me that I would like to stay in this very spot forever." She said,
"I would move there if I could feel that way all the time."
I tried to explain to her it was not the place, it was the moment. I believe that is when God is standing beside you.You have to just enjoy it and open your heart; just let the love fill you up, for however long the moment lasts.
So when you get that little touch from God, just embrace it and pray to God that he will come again.
