Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If
anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will
come in and eat with him, and he with me. To
him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit
with me on my throne, just as I overcame and
sat down with my Father on his throne.
As we stood visiting for a few minutes after Grandpa’s funeral, I was struck by a gentleman’s tie who was standing right behind me. On the tie you can see Jesus knocking at the door. I felt such peace when I saw this image so strategically placed right beside Grandpa, as if Jesus were saying, “I’m here!”
But before I even saw the tie, I had been given a big smile by none other than Nick!!!
Nick loved Batman. I have so many pictures of him in Batman shirts, ball caps, and jammies! When we turned into the cemetery, my sister said, “Look, there’s Batman!” And I couldn’t believe it! Almost perfectly in line with Grandpa’s gravesite was this tombstone!!!
I felt embraced by God and Nick at Grandpa’s funeral! And during all of this, I was receiving texts from a friend back home who was on a walk and was finding a new penny each time she did a lap around the college campus where our husbands work!!! She ended up finding three pennies on one walk!!!
Nick was making us all smile that day!
Thankful for a Father who is creative enough to use a tie ,a tombstone, and three pennies to say “all is well,”
