N is for Neon

This is an experience my mother had, early on in our journey in the LDS Church. She had taken my sister out to Utah to attend BYU and then went on to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City to look up some genealogy information for me.  She had been looking unsuccessfully for quite a while, getting motion sickness from the microfilm readers (a family curse!) She said a prayer for help and immediately she saw as if in neon lettering, the words: VERMONT! VERMONT! VERMONT! flashing in her mind. She had been looking in Massachusetts and now realized that these people had originated in Vermont. She went to the Vermont stacks where she found all the people she had been looking for.

    I love how God cares about the small things in our lives.
    (and I must confess… I’m now very curious what entry you will post for the letter V … this one was perfect) 🙂

    The sign being there is one thing, seeing is another; So many folk are amazingly blind to signs! YAM xx

  3. Interesting!. Intuition experiences or signals whatever you call them, sometimes these thoughts just trigger in the mind and make so much sense, leaving us speechless and clueless about how these happened. Thank you for visiting my blog Gail. Warm wishes, Somali

    Sometimes we just don’t see the ‘signs’ do we and I think that is because we are being mindful in the moment. xx

      Mom says she needs the Spirit to shout and bop her over the head sometimes for her to get it. I guess that’s why this message was all caps and neon, haha!

    When the inspiration comes, we must be ready for it–anticipate its arrival.
