Is this a sign?

At 7:00 this evening I went out to the front of my house, and my grandparents drove home. While I was still there saying goodbye, I looked up, and I saw sitting on a wire, a huge white dove. I stood looking at it and it was staring at me.

I walked into the middle of my road and held my hand up to it. It started to get ready to fly down to me, but my dad spoke and it stopped. We went inside and, as I went in, the dove took off and flew directly over my house. Is this some kind of sign? I have been having a lot of problems with religion and God, so I don’t know if it is a sign.

It could have been, but it doesn’t have to have been. Why not simply think of it as a lovely occurrence that lifted up your thoughts to God?
