From Natalie: “Cardinals have a special meaning for me that relates to my dad. Dad died from cancer at age thirty-seven. My grandmother was convinced that he visited her as a cardinal. At the time, this was an out-there idea for Mom and I to believe in, but a pattern of cardinal sightings began to emerge. Especially during milestones or other significant days of high emotion, a cardinal would appear seemingly out of nowhere. I began to think of cardinal sightings as Dad letting me know he sees our joys and pain. His spirit lives on, and love is forever. I hear from many people that they too have experienced a spiritual connection with cardinals that brings comfort and peace, relating to the loss of a loved one.”

Revelation 21:4
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
