Lost Keys and Angels

A woman told me this today: “I left my keys on a shelf in a big department store. I was in a panic and worrying about what to do. I looked up and down every aisle. Suddenly this woman appears out of nowhere, hands me my keys and says ‘You need to have more faith,’ and then she disappears.”

She told her story very sweetly, but I wonder if she missed a magic moment. Maybe we used to pay more attention to things like this – small miracles or angels or visions who give us important messages.

Things like this used to change lives.

Imagine the angels and miracles and visions, frustrated, scrambling around, trying to get our attention, trying to reach us while we hurry past. They say, Stop, look, I can show you the way.

    Thank you thank you thank you for reminding me to listen to those cues, wherever they come from. What a beautiful ending sentence. It actually made me snuffle.

    So very true. How many times have I stopped, breathed, and THEN found something (usually through an “inside voice”)…after that moment of deep-rooted panic? Now to just remain in that state of calm… 🙂
