“Feeling frustrated and anxious, I pulled out my SKETCHPAD to draw. Having learned how to draw from a book, I find that DRAWING places my mind into drift mode.
While working, I talked with God … asking him to assist me on a family situation.
My husband popped in with a package from the mailbox. Grinning, he told me it was my new GODWINKS BOOK.
Before leaving he admired my drawing: DAFFY Duck and SYLVESTER the Cat.
When finished, I eagerly opened the package. My new book was ‘Godwink Effect’… the yellow one .. ‘7 Secrets to Gods Signs, Wonders and Answered Prayers’.
Randomly I flipped open the book, landing on page 183. I instantly LAUGHED OUT LOUD!
The line my eyes fell upon was this:  ‘…from DAFFY Duck's yer despicable to SYLVESTER’S Suffer’in Succotash"!
 I laughed again. ‘God, you have a great sense of humor,’.
It was the Godwink story of Mel Blanc, the man who created the cartoon voices of Daffy and Sylvester.
I read the amazing story of how Mel was in a coma and Bugs Bunny, whose voice Mel birthed, actually saved his life by helping him to emerge from the coma.
In a short space of time I went from anxiety and frustration to laughter and joy… through Godwinks!

Let’s notice what happened here.

We often say "Godwinks happen when we allow them to happen." Christy had allowed herself to be OPEN to Godwinks by ordering a book called "The Godwink Effect". And that’s when she discovered Godwinks beginning to unfold.
Specifically, within moments of drawing cartoon characters named Daffy and Sylvester, she opened her new book to the very page on which the author (me) was writing about the same characters.
That’s pretty amazing. Could anyone calculate the odds of that?
Moreover, these events draw a parallel between the Thesis of Godwinks and the Biblical promise: “Seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart.”*
Wishes for Winks

When someone you least expect provides the inspiration and support in one’s life, that is not coincidence , it is in deed a GodWinks. I have had many of them and think of you Mr. SQuire and I smile because I too, have looked back at my past poetry and stories and realize there is a blessing and how much I have survived what I was up against. My MeToo challenges created many obstacles, but there is so much more waiting for me to rise up and embrace. My life shows me how blessed I am with the very book of Godwinks. I was seeking life in a numb and hollow form I was living. God has showed up in so many ways and those godwinks have kept me from succumbing to the worldly devises of pain to know God will send someone to bring a purpose to my existence at the right time. Thank you Mr. SQuire 1 Corinthians 16:13 “Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.”
