However I bought two books - When God Winks New Beginnings (Signposts of Encouragement for Fresh Starts and Second Chances) bu Squire Rushnell suggested to me by Linda at Corgi Country and One Word at at Time - A Road Map for Navigating Through Dyslexia and Other Learning Disabilities suggested to us by my grandson's tutor.
The reason I bought the book on dyslexia is rather obvious - my grandson has dyslexia and it is so hard to understand that I thought it would be good to learn all about it - so that we know what he is going through and what he feels like.
I also bought the DVD Front of the Class about Brad Cohen, a teacher, with Tourette's
which I will explain later this week.
What I really wanted to talk about is God Winks. I'm an old blogger with lots of information in my past blogs - I don't even go back to read them (maybe someday my kids will), but I do know I've mentioned many times about my walk with God and how, even though I struggle, have bad things happen to me, and sometimes I have a lack of understanding about what he is telling me - he does these things - these gifts - that amaze me.
I'll be talking to a friend - and I'll get an email from someone that has to do with the exact subject, an uplifting quote, or I get a song forwarded to me by a friend and feel loved, I'll get a call when I'm lonely, I'll find a new friend when I need one, something will happen and I wonder how I will handle it then He gives me a way to do just that, I've met people who have the same background as I have and that makes me know I'm not crazy and I'm not alone! I have friend's that are angels. I have a wonderful sister (which is a story in itself) that has been a huge gift in my life. Okay I'm listing my blessings - but don't you ever get a signal from God - that tells you things are okay?
It happens almost daily for me. I know God is there - even though he might not answer me exactly how I want. It's hard for me to comprehend God - in some ways I wonder why does he let me suffer and then give me hope. Why not cancel the suffering to begin with and forget the hope? I know the answer - suffering changes me into a better person and the hope gets me through it.
These things I couldn't put a name to - and Linda said it sounded like a book she read called God Winks.
So closing my eyes and visualizing that - it is like he is winking - saying it is going to be okay - and then he smiles - and I feel a little better.
Do any of you understand what a God Wink is? Have you ever had one?
When the student is ready, the teacher appears.
Freddie Prinze Junior - Happy Birthday - Wikipedia
"Prinze was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of Kathy Elaine Cochran, a real estate agent, and Freddie Prinze, an actor and comedian who died in 1977. Prinze, Jr.'s father was of Puerto Rican and Hungarian Jewish descent. In a 1999 interview with the Los Angeles Times, Prinze, Jr. stated that his mother is of English, Irish and Native American ancestry (adding that "My grandma and grandpa, who raised me for the first few years, were straight-up English and Irish"); in a 2007 interview, however, Prinze, Jr. described his mother as coming from an Italian American family. Prinze, Jr. was raised Roman Catholic and embraces his Puerto Rican heritage. He grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and spent summers in Puerto Rico, where he learned about Spanish and Puerto Rican culture from his paternal grandmother. He speaks fluent Spanish and Italian. He showed an interest in acting from an early age and attended La Cueva High School in Albuquerque. After graduating in 1994, Prinze moved to Los Angeles to audition for television roles.
Looks like he had a couple of 'winks' from God - his grandparents.
Okay - I just finished my blog - posted it -went to my emails and received this.
It's a God Wink for me - because this week I am thinking about disabilities this week which I will be explaining later on this week. But if not given to me from God to help life my spirits - how else would I receive a video on a disability? I mean I don't want disablitites in my life - I get mad sometimes - and here he is telling me that it is going to be okay.
This is also a God wink for Hopper.
