A Rare and Beautiful Moment
Some may know that I fully believe in Angels & that they can appear in your life at any time & be in many different forms. Well this morning I had a rare & beautiful encounter. My hubby & I went to our city's big English Garden as it was nice. I took my prayer journal & he took his paper & we sat on a bench in this lush garden, just totally away fr everyday life. There were a few people & familys etc that would come & go but basically it was very quiet. After abt an hr we were getting ready to go back to reality when I looked up & a distance fr us I saw an elderly man standing & whistling. I then noticed that he had a hand held out & little birds were landing on his hand & flying away. I told hubby to look, look at the man. We both were just in awe & watched this man with the little birds. The only thing we could think was - wow, look at that, he's so wonderful, thats so beautiful, etc. etc. He started to stroll & then looked our way & headed over. When he got nearer he looked at me & asked if I wanted to try it. He looked at me & said "you can do it, I've been trying to get someone to try & nobody will". I was almost I don't know, speechless, caught in the moment I don't know what to say, but I stood up & he came over & put some seed in my hand. He told me to stand with my hand out, go over a bit to the plants & trees & wait for a few minutes. Within minutes I had chickadees eating in my hand, flying away, coming back, sitting, eating, etc. etc. It felt so incredible. I turned to address him & he was gone. I think it was then that I all of a sudden felt that he was not just an ordinary everyday senior citizen. There had been such a peaceful loving aura abt him. When we were walking back to our car I did notice him again off in the distance in another area of the garden, feeding little birds from his hand. I just couldn't wait to share this with folks that I think might really appreciate such an encounter. When I'd look at the little birds in my hand, it was like here were gods precious little creatures, totally having faith in me, pure simple faith, none of the baggage of todays world, just me & them. I can tell you it really elevated my whole day today.
