I received a text from a dear friend today. She shared a picture with me. It was an artistic tile her daughter made for a recent school project. Her daughter created the tile from her interpretation of my book, Little Blue. Her daughter said the reason she chose Little Blue as a piece for her project was that “Her mom's friend wrote the book”, and she liked how “Little Blue was kindly helped by the children."
These are the simple moments that validate me on my way. I meet God in these moments. In fact, that is exactly what this is/was, a God moment.
You know these moments too. Those palpable stand still times where God gives us glimpse into the divine mystery of it all. Those profoundly simple times that make us pause, reflect and see that God is right here and now, revealing and reminding, so that we remember, know, and share, and keep moving forward. Brief periods in time that remind us there is no before or after, only right here and now. I love these moments. I float free in them and let the universe take me to the next place where God and Spirit will keep revealing and guiding.
They are little whiles of prominence that get lost in translation when we attempt to share or write them down. But it doesn’t keep me from trying. When Spirit is revealed, I want to share with others. It’s a need, right next to food, shelter, and clothing. So I tell the story and I write it down.
“I'm a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.” ~ Mother Teresa
God shows up in our story daily. Little Blue, for me, is a continuing God Moment. And my dear friend’s daughter reminded me of this today.
