Andre found a shiny penny last night as he was coming into our building. It was quietly waiting for him there in plain sight. He brought it to me as a treasure and we know it is because it is a reminder that my Mother who died years ago is still thinking of and praying for us.
The day of my mother’s funeral long ago, when I walked out of church, I looked down and there it was—a shiny penny and I immediately picked it up and put it in my pocket, a small symbol of my dear Mother.
I picked up that penny because I felt it was my own personal message from heaven. I had heard stories about angels sending a sign from Heaven to encourage, so I imaged my Mother as that angel sent to tell me of her love, prayers, and encouragement on the day I felt the loss of her presence most keenly.
As I was investigating this phenomenon more today, I discovered that there are a number of people who have experienced this and stories reprinted that suggest angels are responsible.
The most amazing thing about this find is that every time I have had a significant event in life, my Mother sends a shiny penny, right front of me. I didn’t intend to start a collection but I have several hundred pennies now.
A precious treasure indeed.
