I was awestruck at his presence. We don't have these little creatures around our house very often. It seemed that his little green body with wings at full speed, had just been released from the hand of the Master, so that my attention should be roused and my awe of Him restored.
The timing was impeccable. I had just returned home after many errands and he arrived at the same exact moment.
I really believe that little wonder of God had a message for me. He was redirecting my sights. He spoke without words.
Once again my heart felt it's redemption.
Wonder replaced worry.
My little friend has not returned. My eye will be more attentive now. Expectations are stirred with hope that he will. He might be one of those amazing acquaintances of life that are so brief that they are barely there at all. They seem like a phantom, or perhaps a vision, or dream, however the imprint they leave behind remains with us long after their departure.
The Lord did this for me. Today, He blew me a kiss from the palm of his hand and it came to me in the form of a humming bird.
So I returned the gesture as best I could ,with gratitude, for His compassions are great. His love is generous. His Spirit is kind. And because of who He is, my heart is completely filled with awe.
