“If we believe that the sun and moon hang in the sky for our delight, there will be joy upon the hills and gladness in the fields.”—Helen Keller
My friend, Jay, a fabulous life coach, dad and all-around great guy, calls unexplainable mysteries “sneaky Jesus.”
Here are a couple sneaky Jesus moves from the past couple days.
A daughter of a friend of mine is down in Louisiana or Mississippi or one of those southern states making bamboo bicycles. She’s an architect student and well, why not? Anyway, she left her beloved kitten with my friend who, for about three days, couldn’t find the derned thing. She called the kitten, she tried to lure it out with milk, did all the things any totally desperate person would do to find a prized missing pet. One day, while trying to get her mind off the explanation she was going to give to her daughter when she returns home, my friend was sitting on her bed, fiddling with her I-pad, and out of nowhere, the kitten jumps in her lap. The doors and windows were all closed. She has no idea where the missing cat came from.
Another friend misplaced her favorite bracelet on a cruise. She had taken it off while showering and it disappeared. She and her cabin mate both spent considerable time trying to find it. It was nowhere to be found. A couple days later, while on a shore excursion, my friend looks down and voila!, there were three bracelets (she started the day with one) on her arm, one of which was the missing bracelet.
And this last Sneaky Jesus dropped into my inbox this morning from a reader of E-Squared. Here’s what she says:
“After an earlier attempt at applying the exercises in E-squared, I returned to the book to give it a second shot. I’m one of those “totally gets LOA in theory, but is way too analytical and therefore sucks at application” types. But yesterday, I got my miracle.
I was on my second day of the VW Jetta principle. Was looking for Fiats because I really want a cute little Fiat to drive around the city. Saw one on the first day, in a really weird way. But just one. Set my intention to look out for Fiats on my road trip the next day.
Yesterday, I show up at the car rental to pick up a car. The lady at the desk casually asks, “How about a Fiat?” My jaw dropped. Time to stop playing small. I didn’t want to see a Fiat, I wanted to drive a Fiat!!
So, thanks for a great book and sharing your perspective with the world. Good times ahead for us all.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
