How could this child ever lose faith in her lifetime? She had the pictures to prove that God listened and answered her prayers. I decided I wanted a cow with a “D” on it so I would always be firm in my faith. I wanted tangible proof of answered prayers and God’s miracles. Then I realized I had my “D,” just in different forms.
The birth of each of my children is and was a miracle and a reflection of God’s infinite power and grace. Every spring when the world wakes up and moves from gray to green, I see miracles unfolding. Each breath is an answered prayer. Each song that moves me, verse that enlightens me, voice that inspires me is a “D” in my life.
God is here answering, loving, guiding. We want a “J” or a “D” or an “S” to prove it, not realizing he is spelling our name out with every heartbeat.
I have decided to add a “D” to my inspiration wall as a reminder that I have my cow, my tangible proof, my answered prayer. Much easier than taking care of a real calf, I might add.
