Are you finding a lot of coincidences lately?
Recently, there have been lots of small things. Quite small, but enough to make me wonder.
The same day I saw a flash about a movie called The Waking. That’s all, just the title.
None of this is a big deal. Certainly, I gave no thought to either of these until the next day when a dear friend sent me a story he had written. Will you believe what rock group and what movie are in his story? Yes, Pink Floyd and The Waking!
Then there are things like Beijo bags. My daughter is crazy about them. At first I wasn’t. They looked like ordinary plastic to me, but they’re actually made of the same polyvinyl that army boots are now made of. I would never have known about Beijo bags if it weren’t for my daughter. I refer you to The Story of Heavenletters (http://www.heavenletters.org/storyofhl.html) where you will note that orange is a favorite color of mine.
Saturday, I was at the Good Will in Iowa City. What was the first thing I spotted? A Beijo bag! What condition? Excellent. What color? Orange. What do Beijo bags usually cost? From $90.00 to $120.00. What did it cost me at the Good Will? $1.38. (Someone else there, like me, must have thought it was cheapo plastic!) But, I mean, really, what are the odds? Here’s a picture:
I will tell you one more incredible thing that happened today. Apart from one niece who subscribes to Heavenletters (and my daughter who has no choice!), no one in my family has the slightest interest in Heavenletters. No one even pretends. I’ve tried to get them to just even read Heaven News so they could know what’s happening with me, but no takers. It finally dawned on me that I never was the most respected person in my family, folks. My reputation wasn’t all that great. I suppose there was a lot of throwing hands up and “What is Gloria into now?
