Introduction

There's no coincidence to coincidence

It's no coincidence you just opened this book.

It could be a godwink.

You see, every time a coincidence occurs, a prayer is answered, or something happens to make you say, "Wow! What are the odds of that happening?" you've received a godwink, a signpost along the path to your destiny -- a message of reassurance that you are never alone.

Why do I call it a godwink?

Remember when you were a kid sitting at the dining-room table and your mom, or dad, or grandma gave you a quiet communication -- a little wink?

What did that mean?

It probably meant, "Hey, kid, I'm thinking about you right now. I'm with you. Keep the faith."

Well, that's what a godwink is. Reassurance. It's tangible evidence that you're on a Global Positioning System of something up there that's bigger than all of us.

It's powerful stuff. Every coincidence you've ignored, shrugged off, repressed, or dismissed was a signpost of reassurance, carrying the same message to you. So don't ignore it.

The jigsaw puzzle of love

We all go through times when we seem to be swimming in a sea of uncertainty, particularly when it comes to love.

Haven't you found yourself glancing skyward, wondering, "Hey! Is anybody up there listening to me?"

Let's face it. Sometimes your life feels like a jigsaw puzzle dumped out on the dining-room table. You pick up one piece at a time and say, "I don't get it! Why doesn't this fit together?"

You ask, "What happened to that fairy tale in which I was supposed to have a starring role? Where is the love in my life?"

Here is what I'd like you to consider.

When you're doing a jigsaw puzzle it never enters your mind that it might not go together, does it? Of course not. You innately know that if you have the patience to keep working at it, the pieces will all go together.

For one thing, you believe in the picture on the box!

You have faith that, regardless of the degree of difficulty, all those little pieces are supposed to correspond perfectly. You know it's up to you to have the tenacity to keep at it. And when that puzzle is completed -- and seen from above -- you'll arrive at the not-too-astonishing conclusion that it was intended to fit together all along!

Now -- that is what you must believe about your life!

That your life is intended to fit together perfectly.

That all the right pieces are there in the pile.

That if you have faith in the outcome, the picture you've seen in your mind can be yours.

And that when your life is finally assembled, and seen from above, it will be perfect.

But, but, but -- you're saying: "Am I supposed to believe that my Prince Charming or Cinderella is in that pile of pieces called "My Life"?

Yes.

Please listen, because this is the primary message of this book.

Within that jigsaw puzzle called "My Life," there is a perfect love for you! You are destined to have a soul mate relationship.

Trust me. The perfect relationship for you is there in the grand design for your life. You just need to have the faith and patience to find him or her.

I know -- you're looking around yourself right now, saying, "Wait a minute, relationships are disintegrating all around me. If what you say is true, why am I -- and half the people I know -- involved in failing relationships?"

Back to the jigsaw puzzle.

Did you ever pick up two pieces that seemed like they were a perfect match? You wanted them to be a fit? So then you jammed them together to try to get them to fit? In the end, regardless of how much you wanted them to go together, all you did by forcing them into place...was to injure each piece.

Have patience. Have faith. Have tenacity.

If you're just beginning a relationship, strongly resist the temptation to jam yourself into an imperfect match. They never fit.

If you are already in an uncertain relationship -- you still need patience. After you've dedicated enough time and commitment to be certain that you're not giving up too soon -- mindful that some relationships evolve to perfection more slowly -- remember that nowhere does it say that you were placed on this earth to be unhappy. You have the right to God-given happiness.

    SQuire Rushnell does it again

    I absolutely loved this book. I have always said I don't believe in coincidence and when I spotted the author's previous book, "When God Winks," I knew immediately what he meant. I believe that God lets you follow your own dream, but will occasionally "nudge" you in the right direction. This book is an easy read and quite uplifting.

    Touched my heart

    I highlighted so many parts of this book that were pertinent to me. I especially liked that the author told of his own story--that he had been married and divorced twice and knew that he hadn't been in love until he hooked up with a woman he had met 30 years previously. He revealed himself and made himself vulnerable to criticism. It meant a lot to me. The only part I didn't like was the story about the Holiday Tapestry. It is not a true story. It gets passed around on the internet every year at Christmas time. He should have done his research and left it out. Otherwise a great read.

    Not that great

    Really not what it's cracked up to be. I read it, and gave it to my fiancee, who read it. We are both positive people, who believe in coincidence, openness, love at first sight, but neither of us liked the book at all. It was a bore. Not well written, hard to understand, doesn't capture your imagination or attention. We both LOVE books like this, but not this one
