My wife's sweet Mama lay very sick in her hospital bed. The had family gathered around her to say we loved her and "goodbye".
We couldn't tell if she could hear or understand our words of prayer and praise.
Finally, it was time for me to leave the family there and drive home for that night.
As I walked out of the hospital building, rain started coming down - so I hurried to my car.
As I got inside, I noticed a small tree near by covered with pink flowers - my Mom-in-law's favorite color.
I quickly opened the car's side window to point my telephoto camera at the tree blossoms and I took a quick series of photos.
Later at my home, I noticed in the photos that the rain had made falling "tears" on the flowers and branches of that tree.
I suddenly knew she had died. I believed she was immediately receiving her heavenly rewards for being a faithful Christian woman, wife, mother, and grandmother.
I peacefully felt that I was truly looking at pink flower tree tears, not of devastating sorrow, but of Great Joy!
