Synchronity happens all the time. Are you catching your fair share of it?
Just today I was looking for something to inspire me for the day. I remembered that my mom had given me a daily Lenten devotional booklet from her church, and decided to take a look to see what had been written for April 2. To my surprise, my mom’s story – “14 Rainbows” appeared as the entry! Funny how that booklet had been sitting on my desk for 30 days and I decided to pick it up and turn to her page for my inspiration! It was no accident. I know there’s some powerful force that sets me up for these encounters.
Here’s another synchronity — as part of leading chapter 4 of The Artists Way study group, we are instructed to take a week of “reading deprivation” as a way to explore switching our habits. I totally forgot to not read the newspaper this morning, because this is a habit that is deeply etched into my routine. Imagine my delight when I saw that my dog Gracie’s photo and profile was featured as the “Pet of the Week” in our local paper. I would have missed it had I been abiding with reading deprivation. I quickly realized that I better stop reading the paper, but my conclusion is that fate made sure I didn’t miss this little bright spot for the day. I am certainly grateful and my whole family got a nice laugh.
