Yesterday, I was both startled and delighted to find this beautiful visitor watching me through the window. I slowly stepped closer to him, expecting him to flutter away, but he stayed still like a little statue as he watched me move closer to the glass. His fluffed feathers smoothed instantly as soon as he saw me, and he all but posed for these snaps!
A lone mourning dove. Watching me. At the window.
I felt connected to him instantly.
A little voice inside my head whispered:
“A dove in your path is not by coincidence. Your awareness of its presence, calmness and beauty is also a gift. You were meant to see this dove to remind you to focus on the present; the peace you have in your heart; and the power that is always present all around you, and in your life.”
Some believe the mourning dove is a messenger sent by angels, spirit guides, or even God…of a loved one we lost who is watching over us…
What do you believe?
