THE MAGIC OF THREES


You've heard that things come naturally in 3's—3 little pigs, 3 musketeers, 3 blind mice...all are stories using the magical formula of 3's. Two isn't enough; four is too many.

Like the Trinity. Perfect.

Well, today is the THIRD Friday the thirteenth this year! 

It’s unusual to have three Friday the thirteenths in a single year. Ordinarily, Friday the thirteenth happens only twice a year. But three times makes it extra lucky.  

Even better, this year, all three of our Friday the thirteenths are exactly 13 weeks apart—January 13, April 13 and today.  

The calendar has three this year because 2012 is a leap year. That extra day in February throws everything out of its orderly sequence.  

But rest easy. There won’t be another three Friday the thirteenths in a leap year until the year 2040. 

So enjoy this special, extra lucky day while you can! 

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for creating time to enable us to keep track of the wonderful days you have made. Let us rejoice and be glad in every one of them, praising and worshipping you. Amen. 

WHAT ABOUT YOU? Do you feel extra lucky today?  

For the superstition behind Friday the thirteenth and why it it’s a lucky day, please read my post FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH: THIS IS YOUR LUCKY DAY.

Stay tuned...my friend Chris Vonada will reveal the next building block of relationships on Monday.

Rejoice, this is another day the Lord has made. I don't really feel lucky; but, I do feel blessed. Feeling lucky is a thing of chance. Feeling blessed is a gift from God.
