Saskia Roell is the Author of A Suitcase Full of Faith. A few months ago, she contacted Book Coach, List Tener. During their conversation, Lisa was led to tell her about me and my book, Simply a Woman of Faith. Lisa encouraged Saskia to call and connect me with me.

Saskia called me and we spoke for over an hour. There was an immediate connection and it felt like we were kindred spirits. We laughed and called ourselves “The Faith Ladies.” We both knew in our hearts that we were meant to do some work together. The morning after we spoke, I had the image of a fire and it was like God was saying that when the two of us came together – our combined energy would ignite and spread like fire. We both agreed to pray and see what unfolded.

After reading Saskia’s book (which I couldn’t put down) I invited Saskia to come on my radio show, “Finding The God of Your Understanding.” Saskia was thinking about starting her own radio show and I encouraged her to follow through. She started her radio show called “Your Soul Guidance” a couple of weeks ago.

Just recently, I did a special radio show to interview the upcoming guests for “What Women Really Want” series held at Water Street Cafe in Fall River and Saskia was one of the women I interviewed. I mentioned on my show that I had been selected to be a speaker on The Holistic Cruise to the Caribbean in January 2012. The next day Saskia called me and said, “I want to be with you and be a speaker on the cruise.” I immediately called my contact Lois and asked if they had completed the selection process for the speakers. She said, “No, but we plan on completing it in 2 days.” She agreed to speak with Saskia on the phone.

Saskia called Lois and the rest is history. While she waited to hear if she was accepted, Saskia and I prayed and visualized her being a speaker on the cruise and the both of us sitting on our balcony having a glass of white wine.

I truly believe God brings people together for a reason and when we trust and pray, miracles happen. We are all connected. Thank you Lisa for connecting us. I don’t know what God has in mind for the both of us, but I do know it will unfold in the perfect and right timing. And it all starts with the Caribbean Cruise to the Mayan Country. Let the fun begin.

My father had many sayings growing up that I didn’t understand until I became an adult. One of them was “You can’t out give God.” That saying came to my mind this week. I am allowing myself to receive and to know that I am deserving of the good coming into my life.

As you know from my last newsletter, I have been selected to be a speaker on a holistic Cruise to the Mayan Country in January 2012 – WOW. I am so grateful and excited to be a part of this amazing event. I left a message for the travel agent to call me so we could discuss airfare since the Norwegian Spirit is departing from New Orleans. I had my mail in my hand when the phone rang and it was Fay from the travel agency. She informed me that they were looking into getting group rates from the airlines. I thanked her, hung up the phone and continued opening up my mail. I was shocked when I opened the letter stating that I qualified for an award for 2 airline tickets anywhere in the US. “Well, isn’t that interesting”, I thought. The timing couldn’t have been any better.  I  accepted their offer and the next week I attended a 90 minute presentation trying to get me to buy into their company. I graciously accepted my free airline tickets and had a chance to practice my talk for the cruise “Saying no to others and YES to yourself!!!” I was also the only one there without a partner. Lucky me, I got two free tickets just for me to travel.

When I went to bed that night I was thanking God for providing me with free airline tickets. Then, God brought to mind what happened just that morning. A friend of mine needed money for her rent and after praying about it, God put it on my heart to give her $200. I didn’t know it, but that was exactly what she needed for the rest of her rent.

What I learned from this is that when you give from your heart, whether it is money, time or giving support to another, God always returns the favor, if you will. Mine came in the way of 2 airline tickets worth $1400. My father was right, you can’t “out give God.”

Before my girlfriend picked me up for lunch, I decided to clean out my purse with all of the grocery receipts from the day before. My purse was sitting on the chair at the doorway of my office. As I emptied my purse on the desk, I noticed my wallet was not there. I went back to the chair and searched all around the chair. I lifted up whatever was on the chair to see if the wallet had fallen out somehow. My wallet was gone.

Then it hit me, I must have left my wallet in Wal-Mart when I was there the day before shopping. As my girlfriend and I were driving to lunch, I called Wal-Mart and was informed that my wallet had not been found. They suggested I could check the security film, but I needed to give them the register number and the time I was there. This information was on the receipt, which was home on my desk. I decided to enjoy my lunch and call when I got home. After all, it had already been over 24 hours since I was at Wal-Mart.

When I got home, I called Wal-Mart and gave them the information to check the security film. When I hung up the phone, I made the sign of the cross, looked upwards and asked for help to find my wallet. I immediately stood up, turned around and walked right to the tall plant that was in a basket adjacent to the chair where my purse was placed. I reached deep inside the basket and pulled out my wallet. I couldn’t believe it.

I really cannot explain what this felt like, as it has happened to me on prior occasions, but I did this all without thought. I was devoid of thought for that few seconds of going from my chair to the basket to retrieve my wallet, without an awareness of why I was doing what I was doing. Plus, I had already looked in that area earlier and never would have looked in the basket as it didn’t seem possible that the wallet could have fallen into it. When I picked up my wallet, all I did was look up to the sky and said, “Thank you.” This is confirmation that there is truth in the Bible verse “Ask and you shall receive.”
