The title of my post is actually a partial quote. I’m using it the title because of the significance to me of the statement.
Last night I was one of the fortunate few who was able to get a ticket to an annual winter event in our city where a group of people enjoy a gourmet dinner in a tent on a river….in February. (this year the tent was set up on an old rail bridge because the ice wasn’t thick enough…..global warming I guess.)
We sat at one large communal table with maybe a total seating of 60 people. Of course you meet people you don’t know who are either sitting beside or across from you. I introduced myself to a couple from Mexico. He has been here working in our city for less than a year, his girlfriend arrived here just yesterday from Mexico.
Our conversations were fun and yet quite meaningful. At one point I said to them that I believed things were going to work out for them here because of who they are and their true belief in their vision of achieving a better life. Fate had brought them together and their faith in themselves and each other would give them that life.
Because they both adamantly agreed with me and admitted they believed in fate he replied with this wonderful statement….. “I do not believe in coincidence, I believe in Godcidence”.
I wonder if there was a bigger power at work last night that brought strangers together to become friends. I think there was, and I’m going to call it Godcidence.
