The Four Feathers

Jan 29, 2012 | Moments of Grace

I first started to notice the feathers a couple of years ago. I was going through a particularly stressful time, and suddenly they were there: falling from nowhere in our pantry; waiting on my doorstep when I got home from work; on the air conditioner vent outside our WECO building in the middle of a long CreateAthon night.

I believe each feather is sent to me by the angels, a reminder from God that I am loved.

It has been a long time now since I last found one. Weeks. No, months. Then I woke up early Friday morning, and enticed by the deep blue of a morning after the storm sky, took my camera to the back yard for the sunrise.

Not so spectacular after all, that particular sky. And then I looked down.


A feather. White and soft and delicate against the brown of our winter yard. And not just one. Two feathers, there at my feet.



Today I get these posts on my Facebook wall from my friend (and Chief CreateAthon Evangelist) Peyton Rowe, who has been in town for a few days of focused CreateAthon planning. She and her crew headed to Edisto this morning for an impromptu beach overnight.

Thank you, my sweet angels. My heart is happy.

This is a blog about writing, creative living, and grace in the everyday. It’s my hope this little spot on the internet will be for you a place of quiet and reflection, a source for inspiration, and a reminder there’s beauty all around—we simply need to keep our hearts open to see it. Thank you for being here with me.
