I am a young woman in my earlier thirties, and have never had been married. A couple of days ago, I made a simple statement to the universe that I will see a red cardinal, as a sign from heaven that good things will soon take place. Well, to my surprise, two days later, as I sat in the dining room eating my breakfast, I witnessed a red cardinal fly by and land on a nearby tree branch in our yard. I could not believe my eyes, and quickly grabbed my camera for a picture. I believe my Christmas miracle had come true! As I am typing this message, my first encounter with the red cardinal was on the back of someone’s car license plate, just a day before I witnessed a real cardinal! How’s that for the power of intention!
