This quote always speaks to me, and might mean something to you right now too...

'Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all.'
Emily Dickinson

Praying that the hope of Christ takes rest in your soul.

Thanks, y'all.

@Susan- as Christians, we're taught in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible that the spirit of God has taken the form a dove before in history (at Jesus' baptism, etc.). The presence of the Holy Spirit is something we're promised and count on. The fact that a dove has found me at two houses now is a powerful show, to me, of the Spirit of God that lives within me, comforts me, convicts me, and calls me to place of deeper love and adoration for God. While some Christians would be kinda offended by the pagan reference you listed, I think I understand the place you're coming from. Please know I pray for you - and everyone who reads! - often....

Rejoicing with you!

Hi Brin, Thanks for the extra biblical Dove reference - I guess to me God is God, God is the trees, the babbling brook, the flowers, the weeds, the white dove, the down and out & even the despicable, God is every thing.

in my world xo Susan

Oh I am so glad that you explained. I was taking it all wrong as in that this was a discouraging time for you. Phew! I prefer moving from glory to glory. :D
