There are NO coincidences. As a friend at Holy Rosary once said to me, “Coincidence is God winking at us.” So I don’t think it is a coincidence that this came the very next day after the blog entry I posted yesterday.

Some of you know that I’ve been reading the Bible every day for the past 21 years as part of my morning routine. This photo shows where I landed on my regular path through the book this morning. If you can’t make it out, the top part is Paul’s description of the spiritual armor we are to gird ourselves with as we make our way through this world. These are notes I made YEARS ago, probably when this 20-some-odd-year-old book was new.
The bottom part says this: “Kill–Steal–Destroy: The Devil’s job description.”
In light of my post from yesterday, I can’t see this as a coincidence. At the very least it’s God winking at me, and reminding me, “You’ve got this, because I’ve got you.”
Thanks be to God.
Life is good and I am grateful.
