What do you make of this unusual cloud I saw today?

Today, at about 4:45 p.m. ET, while on my daily 5-mile walk, I had just finished praying the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel at the conclusion of praying the sorrowful mysteries of the rosary. I tucked my rosary into my pocket, wiped the sweat from my brow, and I looked up to the heavens. This is what I saw in the sky above me . . .

  7. Patrick, I showed this to my son and the first thing he says is, "It looks like some sort of impending bird of doom". :) I burst out laughing, only because I was thinking of the Holy Spirit, dove, etc. Kids and their imagination.

  8. I know you think it looks like St. Michael, and it does; but it's the second cloud you've taken that reminds me of the Holy Spirit. It looks to me just like a dove looking down on you.

  9. Interesting, Patrick. I can't tell you how many times the Lord has sent rain on a day when I needed His consolation. (Rain is a happy thing here in the desert.) I think He's telling you not to worry, He can handle things.
