As a TEENAGER Renée Forrestall loved roller-skating. A few weeks ago … about four decades LATER … she thought it would be fun to get back into it.
She bought some new skates but they didn't feel right. Certainly not like the ones she remembered as a kid.
An ONLINE AD popped up for a USED pair of skates for $40. Hummm… they might be the type. There was a photo but they were DIRTY and WITHOUT LACES.
She grabbed a pair of laces and went to the SELLER'S HOME to try them on.
The man, named James Bond (hello), was moving and getting rid of things.
What happened NEXT was UNBELIEVABLE and MEMORABLE for both of them.
As Renée LACED the skates, she flipped back the tongue and saw something that made her GASP! Her OWN NAME was written inside!
“These are mine!” she shouted.
She pulled them on, observing that it felt like “a Cinderella-and-the-slipper moment. A perfect FIT!”
After taking her new (er… 40 year old) skates for a spin, Renée couldn’t shake her astonishment. "Everything culminated into this little moment in time," she said.
Equally wide-eyed, James Bond shook his head, adding, “There are no coincidences!”
So right, Godwinkers!
The dictionary defines COINCIDENCE as a “concurrence of remarkable events with NO apparent CAUSE”.
But, the definition of a Godwink is WITH a cause … God!
So… go skate through the rest of your life looking for amazing Godwinks… each one a message of encouragement … just for you … out of 8 billion people on the planet!
