She appeared out of nowhere.
I didn’t intend to create her.
The doodled angel
emerged for me
It was a mystery.
It was a gift.
As I thought about
and prayed for friends going through a difficult time
and about the fear and grief and anger felt by so many,
I doodled on a scrap of cardstock
and then, unexpectedly,
I was in awe of her appearance
not just because she appeared
but because she seemed to be a reminder
and reassurance of the presence of God, Holy One, Creator.
Perhaps not seen or felt or even believed in,
the presence of the Creator or something (SomeOne)
gives strength to move through a difficult time.
whether believed in
… or not
the Presence will emerge.
It is a mystery.
It is a gift.
