I was recently talking to a friend, Michelle, about a post that I’d made to the blog about how butterflies appear as angelic affirmations. This prompted her to share a story with me. I just love a story about divine reassurance, angelic affirmations, and “God-winks.” To me, all these things fall into the same category: the Magic of Life. Michelle receives divine reassurance when she finds dimes. Here’s her story.
“I always find dimes in the strangest places,” she says. “They seem to show up in times of financial hardship, when I’m depressed over my lack of money. I have a ton of examples.
Here are two:
“A few months ago, I was at the grocery store and didn’t have a lot of cash. I stood at the check stand, digging around in the bottom of my purse for enough change to pay for my little bag of groceries and ended up spending all the money I had. As I walked out of the store, I was telling myself that had I spent my last dime on groceries. Literally. When I got to my car, I opened the passenger door to load the bags and saw something shiny in the bushes next to where I parked. I walked over to take a closer look. Resting on top of a leaf was one shiny dime.
“You couldn’t have balanced a dime on the leaf if you tried.
“I picked that dime up and thanked God for it. Each time I find a dime, I interpret its message as Do not worry about money or finances. I will take care of your needs.
“Then, one day when I was feeling depressed over finances and had no money to spend, I felt myself wishing I could buy something to cheer myself up. It was then that I remembered I had a Macy’s gift card. It had been in the glove compartment of my car for months. When I pulled the envelope out to look and see how much money I had left on the card, three dimes fell out of it and landed in my lap. How they got in the envelope, I have NO idea. What are the odds of three dimes getting into that envelope? I had to stop for a moment and chuckle. I sat in my car and thanked God for what I have in my life and for always providing.
“I told my sister about my dimes, and now she is finding them all the time, too. I think I passed the lesson on to her.”
I love the beautiful message that Michelle derived from these special occurrences. If you’re a person that finds change all the time, the meaning of that change is specific to you. There’s no right or wrong interpretation. Its significance is available from your own intuition. For example, when my mom finds loose change, it reminds her of her father.
When I find change, the angels are speaking to me: Wake up!
I’ll leave you with this. It’s not an original thought of mine, just something I’ve heard passed along to me by many different people: Finding change is an excellent reminder to put your faith back in God. After all, most U.S. coins do bear the inscription, In God We Trust.
