This afternoon in the nail salon I received a beautiful reminder that the Universe is constantly directing our steps – whether we know it or not. I called last minute for an appointment and got one within 20 minutes of that call. I sat down and was chatting with the woman getting her nails done next to me. We didn’t know each other and as we listened to the young high schools girls in the salon talking about prom, we joked how one day they’ll realize prom isn’t everything.
As I was finishing up my appointment, I overheard her telling her nail guy that her daughter was trying to obtain scholarships for college and one of them required a letter of recommendation and a signature from a minister. She told the nail guy that her family isn’t really church-going people and nowadays you can’t just walk up to a church and ask their minister to marry you, sign a paper or recommend you for much of anything unless you’re a member (sad but true). She continued that if she only knew a minister, her daughter would be able to get $20,000 in scholarship money for college – being that she’s an Honor’s Student.
I turned to my left and said to her, “I’m a minister.” She looked at me in disbelief, gasped and said, “Noo..you’re kidding right!” I said, “No, I am a life coach and an ordained minister – what is it you need?” Her eyes lit up, she jumped out of her seat and looked at the sky and said, “You have GOT to be kidding me!” I just laughed – because I knew I was just placed there at the right time on the right day to bear witness to all of this AND be of service to her. So let this be your reminder this weekend that you are ALWAYS in the right place at the right time. You are ALWAYS being watched over and looked out for. Nothing (and I really mean NOTHING) happens by accident! I had intended to get my nails done on Friday but figured it might be closed due to snow and I postponed even calling. We control our thoughts – yes, absolutely – but our movements and interactions are all divinely guided AND blessed! That cancellation, that redirection, that traffic jam, that missed alarm clock – ALL for a reason. Today’s Daily Affirmation is:
