Joscelyn's Journey

A Beautiful Child's Journey Through Hemimegalencephaly


on June 11, 2012

I went to our local bookstore yesterday to stock up on books to keep the boys busy while I was away with Joscelyn during her surgery.

In the Kids’ Section on the Science shelf, I noticed a “Build a Model of the Human Brain” kit.

Check out the amazing factoid printed right on the box:


Really? With only HALF a brain?! You don’t say!

I had to laugh when I saw it. I mean really, out of all of the millions of factoids on thousands of possible science-related topics the bookstore could have displayed, what are the odds of encountering this odd bit of trivia right under my nose?

My sweet friend Grace from New Zealand called this a “Godwink”: a sign that all would be well with the surgery.

What do you think? Do you believe that God gives us “signs” to reassure us?

    That is absolutely amazing!! We call those “Thumbprints” from God in our family…they are meant to leave lasting impressions of His presence and sovereignty, grace and mercy. He’s got this! WHAT an amazing gift, dear sister! Just, WOW!

    You are all handling so much at this time! I truly believe we are sent messages from God. Sometimes they may arrive in package we do not quite understand but later so much becomes clear. I truly believe God is looking after all of you and has his arms wrapped around your whole family!

    i love the term “godwink.” i know this as syncronicity (as psychiatrist and visionary carl g. jjung named the experience) and much is written about this especially in relation to the concept of “flow.”
