“While preparing for my HUSBAND’S FUNERAL, my daughter asked if I’d left the RADIO on. I replied that I DID NOT.
She came back into the room carrying MY HUSBAND’S PHONE. It had somehow turned itself on to the song ‘DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY’! (No, it was not in his playlist.)
Puzzled, we hugged and cried.
A few weeks later, while on a hike, the phone AGAIN TURNED ITSELF on to ‘All Creation Declares the Glory of God,’ (also, not on the playlist)! This time we looked at each other, said, 'Wow', and hugged and cried.
The third time, was at our vacation home. That time the PHONE turned itself ON to a song (not on the playlist) that I’d never heard. The lyrics were: ‘Your Time Here Is Done … It’s Time to Move On.’
This time I thought, 'You are amazing God!'... and I cried!”
The old adage "God works in mysterious ways," seems to fit here as a paraphrase:
GOD WINKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS!
How does God do it? He’s God … He can find a million ways to CONNECT you with loved ones for a single PURPOSE: To bring you COMFORT at times of sorrow.
