I was raised in a Catholic family that expressed importance of the Bible. So, when I was little, I had a picture Bible, and in the stories a ray of sunlight was used to show God was talking to someone. So when were driving and you could see the sunlight beaming through the clouds, I would say to my mom, “look! God is talking to someone!” She would laugh. I’ve gone through some tough times, but even going through everything, I would still think about what I thought were childish thoughts. I had an epiphany on May 9, 2012. Now I’m not sure why my mom laughed at my comment because now I have realized all this time God was talking to someone. He was talking to me. He used the picture Bible and sunlight on those car rides to gain my trust. I know this because no matter how far I got astray, when I would see the sunlight through the clouds, I would think of Him.
