    Thoughts on my walk: Confirmation

     Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.
    Jeremiah 33:3

    My dog Mickey and I have walked the same route most weekday mornings — barring snow, sickness, and super cold days — for the past nine-point-something years. First my collie-black lab Moses accompanied us, then my shepherd-black lab Lyla came along. Since early 2016, though, it's been just Mickey and me trekking along streets and turns and corners we've traversed countless times before.

    Last week as Mickey and I walked, I was deep in thought and prayer regarding a situation one of my daughters faces. A tough spot for her and her heart as well as the hearts of her parents who simply want the best for their girl.

    Mid-walk and mid-prayer I was astounded to see the following shadow on a corner. A corner I'd turned hundreds (thousands?) of times before without ever seeing the comforting image.

    shadow cross 

    Confirmation my prayers were heard, that everything will be okay? I can't imagine how such a sight might be taken any other way. Especially considering the shadow hasn't appeared to me in the handful of walks I've taken with Mickey since then, past that very same corner.

    Yep, confirmation, I shall ever so gratefully believe.

    Wasn't that a sweet and very personal confirmation? I thank the Lord you got it and pray for the most wonderful solution, in God's mysterious way for an answer to your prayers.
