My Daughter, My Heart
My Heavenly Cardinal Visit
My daughter,Jody,was murdered by her boyfriend on June 3, 2007 at the age of 23. As anyone would assume, my life was forever changed from the moment I received the phone call. Jody was my little girl. I have suffered so much since that day asking God over and over why he let this happen to my daughter.

Daily life is very hard just dealing with the different emotions that come up. I have shed so many tears wondering if I could ever smile again. I have 2 other children which I love very much but are suffering too with the loss of their sister. Its like time stopped that day and we have never moved forward.

I've prayed many, many times for God to send me a sign letting me know that Jody is ok. Last night, March 2, 2014, we had about 3-4 inches of thunder sleet, which I had never seen before. When I opened the door to see what was going on outside, a cardinal flew in. I have never had a bird in my house before. He flew through the entire house landing on different things. He finally landed on the blinds covering my sliding glass door. I was so worried about getting him out safely.

It was not until this morning that I learned of the cardinal experience. I read that the cardinal represents hope! That brought tears to my eyes. I don't know that I really totally understand what I experienced, but I do know that God finally answered my prayer. He let me know that my precious Jody was just fine with him!
