Not original or anything like that.

“God grant me the serenity 
To accept the things I cannot change; 
Courage to change the things I can; 
And wisdom to know the difference.”

I tell you, knowing what I know now, that  should be renamed the menopause prayer.

Coincidences are Gods way of remaining anonymous. – Albert Einstein 

Someone gave me a coffee mug with this saying on Monday, then on Tuesday someone in my life “randomly” mentioned it:)

I’ve long thought that coincidences were God’s gentle jokes, to help us guard against seeing meanings that aren’t real.  To keep us wondering.  To encourage healthy doubt.  And to remind us that there is much more to the mystery of life (and everything) than our simple minds can fathom.

My simple mind, at least.

There are two art-postcards – picture + quotation – on the side of our refrigerator, that I love:

A photo of Pablo Picasso, with a quote, “If we know exactly what we’ll do, why bother doing that?” (Textually, “Si l’on sait exactement ce que l’on va faire, à quoi bon le faire?”)

A drawing of Confucius: “A little impatience (can) ruin a big project.”

scorpiosmily_gifjupiter, involved in two yods in my chart (three, when transits or close others provide the other leg)

Yes, it goes way back in my experience too.  It just is still so important to me that I still think about it now and then.
