“Winks from God”

There is a book called “When God Winks”……

Coincidences in life……or maybe not coincidences…are they the winks from God…..

Those moments in life that happen unexpectedly……the Universe’s little hellos and pats on the back….saying you are on the right path and your journey is the right one……

You think fondly of an old friend….and get an unexpected email out of the blue……

You walk old, fragrant gardens from childhood in your dreams, and find a perfect, rose scented soap while window browsing the following afternoon…..

These are the Winks of God, the Universe, whatever energy you trust faithfully to guide your steps….

Yesterday, I had a little “God Wink”…….

I had been debating on purchasing something….

Something a little unusual …….hard to find.

My daughter found one on Craig’s list…..

We emailed the seller, he said it was available; we waited all day…only to find he had a buyer coming, but just wanted to keep us on the hook in case the transaction fell through.

Oh well, my thoughts went back to square one….should I keep pursuing this acquisition……..

I went to bed….

My husband was at the computer when my daughter messaged me about the insensitive seller who had kept us hopeful and hanging all day…….

My husband read the email, and called me…

“Shirl, are you awake”………these moments always send a chill of fear down my spine; as I conjure up a million reasons why he would be asking if I were still awake…..

But, he asked, are you really looking for this????

It seems a couple of weeks ago, my eldest daughter was with him, clearing out my father in law’s closets to ready his home for estate sale….those of you who follow my writings, know  he passed away in January.

He said my daughter opened a box, showed him this item…..and his exact words were….

“WT**** is my father doing with one of these”…….

I know what he was doing with one of these……he was waiting for a March day, when his daughter in law sought one out for a friend…….

The Universe winks at us in mysterious ways; like a cake dome falling off its base shattering on the floor, while its base rests peacefully still.*

If we listen, we hear the messages, we know when chosen paths are good, or when more thought could have been placed in hurried steps along our journey.

There are gifts waiting, hidden away in abandoned closets, hidden away in abandoned souls…..waiting for a “Wink from God”………….
