Greetings from all of us here at Serenity Now.
I (Brooke) want to thank you for the light you bring into our lives.
The other day I had an experience that I want to share with you all. I felt guided to watch a YouTube video from 1971 with Lucille Ball, her daughter, and Carol Burnett on the Dick Cavott Show. Both Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett hold a special place in my heart. Throughout my life there were times that the challenges seemed insurmountable. My faith is the number one reason that I feel I am even still around to be writing this, but a close second contender in dealing with tough circumstances was to lose myself in humor and comedy.
Lucille Ball especially just seemed to have a gift all on her own. She was a trail blazer in several fields. For example, her production company was the one that signed off on the original Star Trek series when so many of the big guys didn’t want to have anything to do with a TV science fiction series.
During the interview Lucy shared some deeply personal situations. One of them was that at the age of 15 she tried to commit suicide. Of course she failed (thank you God). Almost as an afterthought she said, “if I had been successful in killing myself you would have an empty chair here”. Her daughter seemed completely shaken by the story and pointed out the fact that there would have been two empty chairs.
After watching the full interview I had a hard time getting the story out of my head, and when I got to work I just happened to mention it to one of our angel customers. She gave me a response that had I not known, loved, and respected her for a period of almost 15 years, I would have thought she had made up. She said that her mom had gone to the same high school in Jamestown, New York as Lucy and they had shared a locker. Her mother had shared details about the very event and our angel had no idea this was out in the media. To her it was a personal family story. Both of us had chills on our arms and knew that we had witnessed something Supernatural.
I do not know what to call moments like these, except maybe synchronicities. They are like shining stars against a dark sky. These are instances that could not possibly be controlled by human hands no matter what. I always feel so grateful since I know they are signs where I can see the hand of God, and they may seem like details that are insignificant. What it says to me is that there is an order to the Universe that I am not personally responsible for, and I appreciate knowing that so much.
