What a beautiful day! The sun is shining and the weather is a very pleasant 84 degrees. It couldn't get much closer to perfect...
I can only imagine the past few days that Annabelle has had in Heaven. I am sure she has been one busy little girl...meeting two new friends and showing them around the glorious place that was prepared especially for them by the One who loves them more than anyone. A few days ago, she welcomed one precious little girl that I had the honor of meeting twice at MUSC and just feel in love with (afterall, her name is Bella...I know, great princess name!). Another beautiful little angel, Amazing Gracie, joined them this morning. My mind drifts back to our trip to Disney last month and walking into the Princess Room at the World of Disney store...I had never seen such a dolled up, glammed up, more perfect girly girl palace in my life including the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique. I told Scott that walking through that "room" (which was about 5000 square feet) was definitely the closest to little girl heaven that I would ever experience on this earth. That was a little piece of heaven and the JOY experienced there...
God blesses us every single day with Pieces of Heaven...
~Hearing my son's contagious giggle that makes me smile before I am even aware
~Sitting on the couch listening to the birds welcoming in another day as the sun rises
~Staring at a picture of my daughter and embracing it closely
~Watching butterflies dance in the air
~Seeing the same little bird return to my back porch handrail and chirp with a mighty purpose
~A gentle breeze blowing through the screen door
~Holding my loving husband and beautiful son close in our regular "Family Hugs"...and remembering those precious family hugs with Annabelle right in the middle
I believe that God blesses us with these precious moments to remind us just how close He and those we love are to us at every moment of the day. He cares so much for His children and gives us Pieces of Heaven to hold onto until we see Him and experience His full glory.
What Pieces of Heaven has He given you?
