Serendipity’s Definition

fingerprints

1754: coined by Horace Walpole, suggested by The Three Princes of Serendip, the title of a fairy tale in which the heroes ‘were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of’.

Today was a day of serendipity. Sometimes the Lord brings us things in a way that we were least expecting, but leaves His fingerprints so that there can be no mistaking who gave the gifts.

It reminds me of the book of Ezekiel in which the prophet often says, “They shall know that I am the LORD.” Of course, he was referring to things that happened as predicted in a time of judgment. We are in a time of grace. Fingerprints.
