They say love is eternal… They say love is enduring. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails…
It is one of my favorite passages in the bible. There is a quality about that kind of love that transcends our mortal understanding.
We’ve been juggling a few hard things in the background these past few months. And yesterday was one of those days where things were intense, and where I felt quite battered by life.
Late in the afternoon I jumped in my car to dash up to the Post Office, and as I was driving I reflected on some of these worries as I tried to keep a lid on my feelings.
Suddenly the car was flooded with the scent of full-blown roses. A great feeling of peace came over me. I felt a warm unseen hand on my own as it rested on the steering wheel. A golden river of light infused me.
Then I heard a voice.
“Courage, my dear.”
Simple words, spoken as if by someone right beside me.
I know it is my Great-Aunt, who passed many years ago. She is always recognised by the scent of roses. She looks out for the women in my family, and yesterday she looked out for me.
This morning I am buoyed by this wonderful energy, love and connection. I am reminded of my own strength, and the strength of my family line, and I am shown, once again, that love and connection are eternal – stretching well beyond our own lifetimes. We’ll get through this. These ebbs and flows of the worries of life are nothing in the end.
Sometimes comfort and support come from the most unexpected places.
I hope you know that you too are loved by unseen guardians, ancestors and dear friends and family. We are never alone, and these loved ones find ways to bring that message to us right when we need it most.
Has that ever happened to you? I’d love to hear your stories.
Love, gratitude and a sprinkle of happy tears, Nicole xx
