Serendipity or random occurances...

Do you think there is someone or something behind all the random occurrences that happen in your life? God? Or is it such a small world that things just happen and there is no meaning behind it?

First example:
Since I left my full-time job last year, I have been searching for part-time work to fill in the financial gaps. I found a job posted at a not-for-profit company in Nashville, interviewed and hope to get the job. I have been working as a Biomedical Technician...fancy words for I work on medical equipment. The guy I interviewed with just "happened" to know someone needing a part-time Biomedical tech to work on some equipment. I have talked to him and it is going to be exactly what I was looking for. Was this a random occurrence? I don't think so.

Second example:
Kristi and I got invited to The Listening Room last week for a songwriter showcase. I really didn't want to go and the weather was going to be nasty, but we went anyway. There were several great writers there, but one of them, Keith Hinton, co wrote one of my favorite Leann Rimes songs. He co wrote "Because I can" with Judy Rodman who just "happens" to be one of my new blog readers. It's all just a strange coincidence...right?

I find it hard to believe that God would go to all the trouble of running people into each other for his/her own amusement. But sometimes we try and attach meaning to these chance occurrences. I have so many examples like these, but these are the latest ones. So when it happens, I just say, "Thank you God for such a wonderful experience". Then I sit back and wait for him to attach the meaning.

Peace and love to all my readers,

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
