It has been said that a coincidence is just God's way of remaining anonymous. I am reading a book right now that actually shares a fresh, new perspective that rings oh-so-true to me. In the words of its author, Gerald Lund: "Sometimes blessings come in such an unusual manner and with such precise timing that they accomplish something in addition to blessing us. They so clearly confirm the reality of God's existence that they buoy us up in times of trials." Those miracles - in fact - act as Divine Signatures that testify of God loves for us, His children.
The second email came from one of my favorite artists, Elspeth Young. I have long loved her Bible series (my favorites being this and this), but never thought I would be more than just an admirer from afar.
