A spiritual leader does not say,  ‘Follow me.’ A spiritual leader says, ‘I’ll go first.’  Decide today to take the oath:
I promise to “go first” in demonstrating forgiveness, compassion, understanding, generosity, kindness, cheerfulness, positivity, and love. — Neale Donald Walsch

I Love the Universe!

Todays blog title is what Bob said after we shared our stories of provision with each other.  I started by saying I love when the Universe provides and does it with a sense of humor.  My grocery trip this month was delayed and I was running out of gluten-free flour.  Then yesterday in my email was notification that I had won a drawing for a Better Batter sampler pack.  Better Batter products are of course gluten-free baking mixes and flours.  Need not only met, but met in a way that made me laugh.

As he listened to mine, Bob could hardly wait to share his story.  When he got up in the middle of the night he saw in his Kindle stats that he had given away exactly 12 copies of Revealed Vol. 2.  We had both been discouraged by the lack of interest in the Revealed series.  The number of books being given away the first day being exactly 12 — the number of the Apostles — gave Bob encouragement that even though he does not know the plan, things are going as they should.

After I shared my story Bob asked circumstance or miracle?  When I said it seemed almost sacrilegious to call something so small and rather trivial a miracle of course his response was….  Why?  God/the Universe does provide.  That’s not just a nice saying — its reality.   Provision happens in the small things as well as the big ones.  Sometimes it even makes us laugh.
