Not sure where to post this, but I sometimes wonder about coincidences and wonder if something somehow causes them to happen. Last Thanksgiving, I was out on my deck with my sister and her fiance, and he asked me if I ever saw any deer run across the hill from our road. I said, No, all the time we've been here, I've never seen any, though I look for them. The next day, for the first time in the two years we'd been here, two does ran across the hill. Another coincidence I had occur was back when I first went to work for a newspaper as a freelance reporter. I was a jw at the time and had attended a city council meeting to report on it. This was my first assignment of my job. I got in my car to go home, and what was playing on the radio but the song Dirty Laundry, about the press. I had two emotions. The first one was I wanted to listen to it, I was feeling elated about having my job, but the other thought that entered my mind was that it was Satan trying to draw me in to the world, by playing that song for me after leaving my beat. I was always conflicted when I was a reporter, I wanted to be one badly, but there was the jw element where I was becoming involved with worldly politics and sometimes wrote things that were questionable from a jw stand point. Anyway, these two things were certainly coincidences and I find myself wondering about how coincidences happen.
