  1. Doves always remind me of my grandparents because they would be cooing as I woke up at their house as a child. My Nana is in heaven now and the sound of a dove gives me comfort. I love how God uses the world He made to continually come into our daily world, our hearts.

  2. Yes, He speaks so much through His creation. What gifts He brings our way to help us “see” Him! I am grateful that He uses them to bring comfort to your heart!

    Thank you so much for your comment, Holley!

  3. Your post reminds me of an old song…
    “I come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses. And the voice I hear, as He draws me near, the Son of God composes. And He walks with me and He talks with me. And He tells me I am His own. And the joy we share as we tarry there, none other has ever known…”

  4. Yes! That is wonderful! Thank you for that, Jenni!

    I was a Christian for over 20 years before I started “hearing” His speaking voice ~ Now it is the treasure I love so very, very much and we are working together on my hearing Him more throughout the day ~

    God bless you!
