A lady was getting ready for bed and she noticed a small fluffy peacock feather on her pillow. She thought a tuft of air some time that day made it flutter there from her feather collection near the bed. Placing the feather back in its proper place, she reaches for an inspirational book thinking to read a few stories before going to sleep.
Upon opening the book the title of the story astounded but comforted her. It was titled "Feather Light". It talks of a young girl in school learning about feathers from her teacher; how feathers, no matter how small, were an inspiration of hope to sailors, how Da Vinci studied feathers for aerodynamics and how birds are special creatures in creation.
The most striking thing in the story is a passage from the Bible: "He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."
The lady, now nearing tears, realized the message sent to her heart. She knew that throughout life she has been lifted, guided and protected in times of difficult circumstances. She knows that in times to come, His wings will lift her up and provide strength and comfort. His feathers will keep her safe no matter what life will bring her way.
In her heart, there is content and peace, an inner strength of knowing that even the smallest things can be his messengers. The Feather on her pillow is a gift from spirit...
I would like to send the message of contentness and peace, love and healing. We are always cared for and loved more than we could ever know. His wings will lift us above trials. His wings will comfort us.
Here is hoping that you find a Feather Gift this day...and know..."He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."
Love and Light,
