Coincidence or Truth

This is a link to a new blog that I am starting to write.  

There are many books out there quoting stories from people's lives where so called coincidences happen.  They provide you examples of how Hashem (G-d) is in our lives all of the time and all you have to do is look and you will see.  The problem is that most people don't look and if you don't look, how can you expect to see?

I love to look.

I love to see.

If you look.

You will see.

Now, the problem with most of these books is that whilst the stories are very nice, you can't quite bring yourself to believe that all of them actually happened exactly as the story makes out.  This blog is different.  I can personally vouch for each and every one of there stories.  How?  Because they happened to me.

My Rabbi keeps on telling me to write these stories down and I kept on saying that one day I would, but then I never did.  But the other week, just before Pesach, something happened that made me change my mind about noting them down.  I even told the story in Shul one week when the Rabbi wasn't in.  I like to get up every now and then to speak.  I am not pretending that I am an halachic authority on anything.  But we are only a small Shul so I can get away with it.  In fact as these stories unfold, you will see that I was once very secular and am now bal-tshuva.  After telling this story in Shul a number of people came up to me afterwards to tell me how amazing the story was.  So I thought that it was about time that I did start to write these stories down and here they are, starting with the aforementioned story.

I hope you enjoy the stories.
