A “God’s Wink” Moment

Published August 28, 2012 by boldbeautyfulyoungrestless

A “God’s wink” is what some people would call a
coincidence, an answered prayer, or simply an
experience so astonishing that it could only have
come from  God.

 I would like to share one of these moments that I experienced
with you today, in the form of a short poem.
Having lost my mother, grandmother, and many other
loved ones to breast cancer, it was a scary
diagnosis to receive myself.  Here is what happened on
my surgery day.

—————————————-

 A frightening day, that was so hard to face
 I decided  to put myself in a whole other place

As I lay alone in the hospital bed
 Panic and fear are filling my head.

Anxiety  getting the best of me
Oh, how will I g
et through the Mastectomy??  

 I will tell you now what worked for me,
I changed my thoughts with 
Mental imagery.  

They wheeled me to the operating room
So I close my eyes and pictured
GIVING BIRTH SOON!

This may sound so very strange to some
but there’s more to this story,
still yet to come. 

I arose from surgery, was escorted to the door
And to my surprise, was on the
Maternity Floor!

 I said to myself:  this must be a sign……

This is surely  
‘God’s wink’ 
and I knew I’d be fine.

Lights

There are lights that kiss the ocean
And lights that fill the skies
Lights on a warm summer breeze
Brought by fireflies

A glow from a far off window
Piercing the evening deep
And lights that cast their image
On a dark wet city street

Lights of day,
Lights of night
Some quiet gray
Some boisterous white

The lamp of love new found
The torch that sets men free
A glow of words profound
Restless fire of humanity

A flame that stands unafraid 
To guide the ships at sea
And lights of crimson, gold and jade
That fills a Christmas tree

Yet all these fused together 
Cannot compare in size
To light that shines
Within his sweet blue eyes
