Some years back I was going through such a difficult time. I drove to my mom's in Vermont and on the way I stopped at Stowe. I often go to the von Trapp Family Lodge just to walk the gardens and enjoy the gorgeous mountain views. The von Trapp family fled the Germany in the early 1940's and settled there. The mountains reminded them of Austria and you feel like you are in the movie The Sound of Music when you visit.

That year I had a dream before my trip that in the middle of this beautiful landscape I came upon a Cross covered in forget-me-nots. I took the sign and tried to surrender everything to the Lord. But I wasn't successful, I was losing my faith.

Walking the grounds of the Von Trapp Family Lodge I stumbled upon a patch of forget-me-nots in the shape of a heart.

Further along I came upon this beautiful little grotto and the cross. There I was walking in my dream, but this time I found my faith. I will never forget the warmth of the spirit that flooded through me.

It was the most wonderful reminder that we are never alone. I left with my faith restored and a lovely God wink that will live in my heart forever. My troubles passed and my prayers were answered and in a beautiful way.

Have a Blessed Easter. I wish you renewed faith and the blessings of God's favor.

"And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in its season; there shall be showers of blessing.

Ezekiel 34:25-27
