I've been working up a pretty good angry and upset cry today. God had other plans (as he normally does in my life). I turned on the tv and one of my favorite movies was on. Signs with Mel Gibson. It just happened to be at the end where Mel is saying,
"See what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you the kind that sees signs, sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky? Or, look at the question this way: Is it possible that there are no coincidences?"

I have seen that movie a gazillion times, but never with these eyes. Never with the eyes of a widow, a hurting widow. Then i remembered the night HeeJun and I were up all night worrying about a loved one that we thought was dead. We got the call that they were alive. I remember HeeJun saying immediately after he hung up with the police officer, "there are no coincidences. God is in control."
