Do you believe in serendipity? Those “happy accidents” or “pleasant surprises” that happen in a day to make things go well. As one dictionary defined it “the faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.”
Or are you more the type who believes in divine intervention? That’s defined as “a miracle perceived to be caused by a Deity’s active involvement in the human world.”
Or maybe you just figure life unfolds however it does and prefer not to give things a name.
Most mornings I wake slowly and think of two things. “What day is it?” Which kick-starts my automatic scheduling, planning brain functions.
The other thing I think is “what should I write this morning on my blog?”
I woke with three words in my head this morning.
Angels among us.
It could be that I’m still feeling grateful for all those people who helped saved my son’s life two years ago. I don’t want to let go of that amazing feeling. I consider people who help me or my family or friends as earthly angels. Whether they intend to be or not, that is how I see them.
To explore why those three words were in my head I figured I’d google it. Maybe there’s a poem or some lyrics that will help steer my writing for the day.
The first hit on googling “Angels among us” was a song by Alabama that I’d never heard of. So I click on the lyrics to see what it says.
It’s a nice tie-in to what I posted on Tuesday about my son’s rescue.
So then I clicked on the link to Alabama’s video and found myself crying.
Call me sentimental. Call me sappy. Call me a believer in angels.
I don’t mind.
I feel blessed by so many people in my life. Each one of them angels in their own right, having in my eyes at least, already earned their “wings.”
I also believe in Angels from wherever divine help comes from. I’ve had too many “happy accidents” to consider them accidental. You’re free to keep thinking however you want. I, for one, believe.
Enjoy the music. It’s a sweet melody, with tender-hearted lyrics. And who could go wrong with a song by “Alabama”?
(If you’re more into Demi Lovato she fairly recently did a cover of the song as well here.)
Wishing you a day filled with serendipity or angels or both!
