The Dawn of a New Year

I ran across a quote by Chuck Swindoll that sums up how I feel. My blog title is patterned after this philosophy of my life.

"Serendipity occurs when something beautiful breaks into the monotonous and the nundane. A serendipitous life is marked by "surprisability" and spontaneity. When we lose our capacity for either, we settle into life's ruts. We expect little and we're seldom disappointed. Though I have walked with God for several decades, I must confess I still find much about Him incomprehensible and mysterious. But this much I know: He delights in surprising us. He dots our pilgrimage from earth to heaven with amazing serendipities."

"You, Lord, open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing." Psalm 145:16

At the dawn of this new year, I pray that your life will be full of God's amazing serendipitous epiphanies!
