Today after my aunt Charlotte’s heartbreaking funeral, this appeared in the cemetery without a single roll of thunder or drop of rain:
And it’s not the first time I’ve heard of this happening. After losing his sweet mama in a car accident, a rainbow appeared over my friend Adam’s wedding just a few months later when her absence was such a new, raw ache. And he knew it was from her. And he celebrated that night, knowing her blessing was on it.
You can call me crazy, but as a believer I know that God sends us signs and comforts in incredible ways. Today I’m especially thankful for that.
