Tonight I just got done sitting out back, just staring up at the bright, brilliant stars, listening to the night, and feeling an occasional gentle breeze. So peaceful and calming to experience this. I sat outside for awhile just enjoying this and also praying to God and talking to our sweet Avelyn. When I decided to go in, I turned toward the door and something caught my eye, so I turned back around. One lightning bug flew across our backyard, every couple seconds lighting up as if to say 'hi' each time. The whole time I had sat outside I hadn't seen one lightning bug anywhere until that moment. I saw this particular one light up probably 10 times as it flew across our yard and flew away into the night. After it left, I blew a couple kisses (to my baby girl) into the night sky. So thankful for moments like this.
If you haven't ever taken the time to enjoy God's night like this...to feel His presence, or if you haven't done it recently, I highly encourage you to do so.--So peaceful and comforting.--Tonight I felt so aware of God's presence and also of our sweet angel Avelyn. Praise God for this.
