Last night as I was getting ready for bed, I heard a low cooing sound outside.
It was pitch black and freezing temperatures. I took my dog out the last time for the evening found out that it was two doves, talking to eachother. I then went back into my room and listened to them a bit. One had a low, stronger voice, and the other had a softer, higher voice. The low one would coo three times, then the higher one would coo back. It was such a soothing sound. I was mezmerized that the doves were having this late night conversation...maybe they were keeping eachother warm in the night and having a romantic conversation.
This lead me to thinking about Chris and I. I felt my heart open and love flowing into it, each time I would hear the doves reply to eachother. I know that the dove is an animal sign for Jesus, and what better animal to symbolize His love, especially after the celebration of His birth.
The doves were a wonderful sound to hear as I fell asleep, and a wonderful reminder of the Love that we all share, whether we feel it, recognize it or not. It is always there.
