The Lord gives me pennies every so often. I find them in odd places; I find them when I need a pick-me-up; I find them when I need a 2×4 to the head when it comes to trusting Him. I especially love it when my birth year or year I gave my life to Christ comes up.
For the past couple of weeks, I keep finding pennies from 1999. I believe my running total is 3. I found 2 of them on a run around my neighborhood: 1 at the beginning of my run, 1 at the end.
What does it mean? What was I doing in 1999? I had just met Dean, my high school sweetheart. My sophomore/junior year of high school. Something that struck me about that time period was my career: my career could have gone 2 paths and I chose the one that would open the most doors – even though I was accepted at Michigan State for the other one. The job that is suppose to open (omg, HR! Let’s move it!) is the option I could have chosen in 1999.
I’d like to think it’s a sign. I really hope it is.
I’m so ready to move across the hall I can barely stand it.
