As many of you may know, my favorite quote from Dad is:
“You are what you are and where you are because of what’s gone into your mind. You can change what you are and where you are by changing what goes into your mind.” Zig Ziglar
Today (Feb 1) during my morning devotionals I was reading from The One Year Daily Insights written by Dad and his good friend, Dr. Ike Reighard. And wouldn’t you know it, at the end is my favorite quote!
Well, that doesn’t seem like a big deal, until you realize that Feb 1 is my birthday! So this morning I checked with my sister Julie (she is Dad’s editor) to see if she put it in there on purpose. She assured me that she didn’t, and, in fact, explained that the quotes were just matched up with the subject of the devotional for the day. It was a coincidence.
Another one of my favorite Dad quotes:
“Coincidence is just God’s way of staying anonymous.” Zig Ziglar
As you can imagine, when God shows up with a special gift on your birthday, it’s going to be a good one!
