some call this coincidence. some call it serendipity (which is a great word, even if i'm unsure i believe that things can really be simply serendipitous). i call it little everyday evidences that god knows me and knows exactly what i am feeling and what i need.
So it is, amid the vastness of His creations, God’s personal shaping influence is felt in the details of our lives—not only in the details of the galaxies and molecules but, much more importantly, in the details of our own lives. Somehow God is providing these individual tutorials for us while at the same time He is overseeing cosmic funerals and births, for as one earth passes away so another is born . It is marvelous that He would attend to us so personally in the midst of those cosmic duties.
