the bee.








i’d been lying in bed for a long time, 

focused on my pain

and where my body might be taking me 

next.

i’d been lying in bed for a very long time —

and then i saw the bee.

it was just outside the window, hovering,

like a tiny alien spacecraft 

suspended between earth and sky.

it was only a bee.

but it was also a miracle,

i could see that. 

and as it zipped away, i remembered 

to believe

Isn't it amazing how God gives us little glimmers of hope at just the right moment. I am sorry you are not feeling well; I am praying for you….

That is so wonderful that such little things give you strength. Hope you'll feel better soon my friend.

To bee is to believe... I LOVE that! ;o) It's moments like that, when we're laid low, literally, that so many small things become big things--miracles. It's the little things that mean a lot, and often, what can give us a lot of strength. Be taking good care... ((LOVE & HUGS))

Lifting your name, with so much love, to the Father above

with huge hope for comfort and healing in every place that pain has settled.
You are much loved, dearheart.

hope lies in the smallest of gifts.
it is up to us to perceive it.
thank heavens for the bee!
