  • Have you ever experienced a set of 'coincidences' that added up to a blessing? These moments can give us hope and renew our faith and often come when we need them most.

    I was sitting in the passenger's seat feeling more than a bit depressed.  My daughter was driving me back to Georgia and the air was tense between us - she was burdened by the fact that the two months I was supposed to have been in Wisconsin had turned into eight after I had emergency heart surgery and then was arrested for smoking pot. It was my first arrest ever and I'm glad it was related to my cause.

    I was lost in my own thoughts: Was I going to be okay so far from the hospital that had saved my life? How was I going to pay off the last of my fine?  Would my daughter and I remain friends?

    It was a rainy gloomy day, dreary weather to be in on a long trip, especially when depressed, as we both were.

    As we crested a hill, we saw a white cross towering above the little churchyard it stood in.  At the same moment the radio began playing a beautiful Jazz version of "The Old Rugged Cross".  I commented softly that my mom would surely enjoy the music.

    Suddenly an 18-wheeler roared passed us, abruptly swerving into our lane directly in front of us. It wasn't so close that we panicked, but close enough that the words on the back were in our face: "MARY KAY Cosmetics". My dad used to call me Merry Kay.

    Then another 18-wheeler eased up right beside us.  Down the side was written "Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."

    The entire sky was taken up by the cross to the left, the Mary Kay truck in the front, the bible verse on the right. Only a single diamond shaped piece of gray sky showed in the middle. I instinctively looked up to see the gray diamond suddenly open. A shaft of sunlight shot out of the hole, lighting up everything around us.

    Just as quickly, I had a strong mental vision of my dad, very excited, and my mom, somewhat reluctant to be with my dad but there for me.

    The trucks moved on, the gray clouds closed again, we passed the cross and the song ended.

    I said not a word, but my daughter looked over at me and said, "I'm glad that happened for you."

    I felt very blessed.
