Do you believe in coincidences?
And then again I don’t.
Say what Lady G?
Ok, I’ll admit that I have mixed feelings about the term ‘coincidence.’
I find it too sterile.
Seems too scientific.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Science, it has always been one of my favorite subjects.
However, at times, I find that discipline’s lens to be a bit myopic.
Simply put, human connection, in reality, occurs on a Universal realm that is ever so complex, and thus, cannot be reliably replicated through research.
Having said that, several years ago I read a book entitled When God Winks by Squire Rushnell.
That book validated my own thoughts about ‘coincidence’ and ‘synchronicity.’
Rushnell refers to these as winks from God.
You gotta love that!
I’ve experienced MANY ‘winks’ from God relative to bloggers that I follow.
The most recent one was with Kim from “Peace, Love and Patchouli.”
Here’s how it went down.
My daughter, Lady J, was selected to act as one of the narrators for her school’s Christmas play.
Her teachers instructed us to dress her in all black so as not to be a distraction from the play actors.
Well, Lady J and I hatched a plan to jazz that thing up!
Yes, she’d wear black….but not all black!
This elementary fashionista wanted a pop of color!
The morning of the play, I went shopping for a black top with black bottoms.
Got the top.
Got the bottoms.
Done and done.
My last task was to find the perfect colored piece to accentuate her otherwise boring ensemble 😉
Well as soon as I walked into an accessory shop, I spotted a purple hat –replete with all things sparkly!
That was the HAT!
After getting back home and settling in from my shopping, I turned on my laptop to check messages on the blog and to try to catch up on some reading.
As I scrolled through my feed I happened across Kim’s post “Purple Hat.”
Now, I don’t want to spoil the plot, but I will say that it is a story of great courage!
After I read it, I knew that I had chosen the perfect hat for a little girl who would need to be brave enough to stand before an auditorium filled with people to narrate a play.
So I told Lady J the story of Kim’s purple hat and she loved it!
Fast forward some more…
Later that night Lady J ripped it while wearing a purple hat in Kim’s honor!
I hope that you will read “Purple Hat.”
And I pray that it brings you as much warmth and motivation as it has brought us!
Thanks Kim for telling your story 🌹
Much love and light to you all!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Lady G 😘💋
Remember, God winks!
PS: Forgive the typos, Lady G is still recovering 🙂
