Pennies From Heaven
Pennies From Heaven
Pennies on the sidewalk in the street, look … there’s another one right at my feet. They leave a trail, I know not where.
I’ll never go broke, these pennies are mounting up. It’s funny it’s silly, a grown woman picking up pennies. Lord, what are you trying to tell me? Is the meaning hidden somewhere in these pennies?
So many pennies all stored in a jar; some shiny some dull, some tarnished, I can see them all. They all look so different but their value is the same. They’re still just pennies, pennies that don’t look the same.
They remind me of the people I’ve met on my journey in this universe. Lord, is that the answer to it all? They’re people not pennies in that jar.
White and black, young and old; some have money, others are pretty needy. Each touched my life in some small way. Good or bad, it made me the person I am today. We’re all God’s children. We don’t look the same. Just like those pennies, our value is the same.
God speaks to us through the people we meet. He delivers messages that way. When you meet a stranger who gives you a helping hand one day or when you talk to people who suddenly supply the answers that you seek. And others who finish your very thought before you can even speak. They’re angels in disguise, performing blessing right before your very eyes.
Pennies from heaven, they are angels in disguise. They don’t stay long, they’re just passing on. They were never meant to stay; they’re in and out of our lives every day. They stop and interact, dropping off a blessing which sometimes turns into a lesson.
So don’t throw away those pennies you find each and every day. By the grace of God, who knows, they may come in handy someday.
“For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
And in their hands, they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.” – Luke 4: 10, 11
I love your piece of writing. I feel like it is symbolic and touches upon many of my beliefs as well. I am a spiritual person and I always say that people that we meet in life always have something to teach us. They either serve as teaching us a lesson to learn or to serve as a blessing, even if they do not stay in our lives forever. I especially love the metaphor you chose to describe people as pennies. I am a teacher and in our school we use the analogy of eggs: Eggs come in different colors on the outside but once you crack them open, we are all the same inside. I feel a strong connection to the universe and when you went on writing about pennies it makes me think of pennies being a good omen. If we cross our path and see a penny, I believe it is a sign from the universe reassuring us that everything will be okay. Some other people believe it is a sign from angels. Very interesting read, thank you.
Love & light,
