Angels never cease to amaze me. Today, I was invited to luncheon with friends, and, as usual, the topic quickly turned to intuition and synchronicity. One woman, Dawn, shared that she had been living in the past for much of her life. She stated this matter-of-factly, indicating by her voice and manner that she accepted living in the past and really saw no reason to change her outlook. One day, perhaps two years ago, Dawn said that she was sitting and interacting with a group of children when a little seven-year-old girl sat down beside her.

“I have a gift for you,” said the little girl to Dawn.
“A gift?”
“Yes, I have a present,” repeated the little girl, “yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is to come. The present is now.”

As Dawn was digesting these words of wisdom from a little girl who had no idea that Dawn habitually lived in the past, the little girl told Dawn a story: “God has a great big barrel in Heaven where He lives. Each request goes onto a piece of paper and gets dropped into this great, big barrel. Then, God puts His hand all the way down to the bottom of the barrel, and pulls out a request. When God reads your request, you will get your wish.”

As we sat the table and heard these incredible words, goosebumps ran all around. How could a little girl know these things and state them so confidently, with complete assurance that the message was meant for Dawn? And that her words would echo down the years and the miles to us, as we were sitting at that table, four comparative strangers? For, as Dawn relayed the story of the barrell, I suddenly knew that the dearest request of my heart had been read and that it would be soon forthcoming. So, my dear readers, write your dearest requests on that slip of paper, surround it with Light, drop it into the barrel, and hang on when it is granted!

Yesterday is history
Tomorrow is a mystery
Today is a gift, that’s why they call it the present
