There is a church song I love – “A Beautiful Life”. I love the first verse of this song – “Each day I’ll do a golden deed. By helping those who are in need. My life on earth is but a span. And so I’ll do the best I can.” The sunrise this morning was beautiful and as I stood outside I sang this song to myself.
A buzzard flew over, landed in a tree to watch me. A little rabbit bounded by and went on his way. He was too fast to capture his picture.
I looked at this cloud and thought I saw a Teddy Bear laying on his back, watching me, as he drifted slowly by. His front paws were on his chest and his back leg was raised to wave at me.
These wavy clouds drifted by – as if they were waving a greeting to me. What a beautiful world God gave us to enjoy.
I can still see that Teddy Bear raise his head to look at me. As he drifts along on his fluffy, soft bed of clouds, high up in that beautiful sky.
The last verse of the song . . . “While going down life’s weary road. I’ll try to lift some traveler’s load. I’ll try to turn the night to day. Make flowers bloom along the way.”
My husband and I did just that last week for a stranded 60 year old lady. Her car broke down and she had little money to continue her journey home (500 miles). She had been sleeping in her car for 3 nights. It was a blessing for us to help someone who told us the truth. Someone who truly needed help. She said, “God sent her 2 guardian angels.” She had taken a wrong turn and ended up in our area. We told her God sent her our way so we could help. A wonderful christian mechanic, we know, fixed the mechanical problems with her car and did not charge a fee. This lady sent us an email when she arrived safely home. It makes me think of the verse in the Bible – Hebrews 13:2 “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”
