My dad loved hummingbirds. And I love flowers. Both are a reminder that God sees, God cares, and God provides. He never leaves us without hope. He has promised to never abandon us.💞 my dad used to ask God to show him a hummingbird as a reminder of hope. I could give you countless examples of times that my dad would get excited and share: like the time sitting in the office and he prayed quickly for a little reminder of hope and then picked up a magazine with a hummingbird on the cover, or when my stepmom was putting up new cameras in the house and the camera logo was a hummingbird, or the movie my dad and I watched and saw a camera decoy disguised as a metal hummingbird. Then there were the real ones, the little tiny hummingbirds that would visit my parents backyard and the hum of their wings, their tiny little sporadic visits would bring hope. Between dad and God, those hummingbirds were a tangible reminder to cling to hope. To know he was never forgotten, always seen and always in the capable hands of a Good Father with a greater plan for his healing. Dad's physical healing didn't come in the way I had hoped and prayed, but it did come. Death ended his suffering and was the beginning of his new life in Eternity. My dad is in heaven, at total rest and enjoying every possible joy that I'm convinced we can't even begin to conceive. So my tattoo is my little reminder that HOPE remains. God sees me, just as God saw my dad. The Father's eye is ever watchful. He may not answer my every request as I desire, but I will call to mind 1 Corinthians 13:13 and now these three remain: Faith, Hope and Love, and the greatest of these is LOVE ❤
I love you dad. I miss you more every day. And Lord I trust you, carry me through, create in me a new level of faith and help me to love others so deeply and compassionately that they see more of YOU in me.
