I've oftened told people that things aren't just co-incidences, but that it's "God winking to us from heaven". Tonight, I saw a writer who has coined the phrase. He had written a book by that very title!

When God winks

Don't think yourself too smart or good
just live your day content;
Work hard, play safe just like you should
with thanks all heaven-sent!

There's always someone else out there
who beat you to the plate
Why should you fear or even care?
Your day will come - just wait!

If we'd choose faith instead of fate
we'd soon begin to think
God has a plan for each - that's great
and we won't miss that wink!

(Wish I had caught the author's name, for he inspired me to think. It doesn't really matter at all if someone beats you to something, for God has something unique for each of us.)

excellent thought performing poem. Winking is mischievous fun, compliciting the witness to join in a secret pact. Or.. winking can mean you're interested in something more fruity...
love esti

When someone winks at me, it could mean so much - could definitely mean 'only joking', Nep. I feel an HONEST wink means "I'm with you. All my thoughts are focused on you right now. I agree."

yes,i agree
