Pennies from Heaven

Posted at 12:57 pm under Faith, Thought for the Day

penny.jpgMany people believe that if you see a penny on the ground and it is facing “heads up”, then you should pick it up for good luck. I’ve actually watched people throw them back to the ground if they were “tails up”. MotherDear is one of those people; she says they’re unlucky. Even from a strictly practical standpoint, it is real currency. It is free money.

The inscription on every coin reads “In God We Trust”. I pick it up as an affirmation to God that my trust is in Him. This applies to any coin; pennies, nickels, dimes or quarters, whether “heads up” or “heads down”.

I believe that whenever I find an old, tarnished and dirty penny, that is God sending me a message. He’s reminding me that He is always watching over me and He is always in control.

If God desires to have a conversation with me, who am I to walk on by?

    What a great thought!! (Let’s just hope the ACLU and the atheists don’t mess with God’s message.)

    I feel the same way–more than once he has provided enough pennies that I could buy what was needed (tomato paste used to be 19 cents. :)) God is good.

    That is an interesting perspective. I don’t like to throw money away either. We save our change around here and save up for something fun like extras on vacation.

    The very best job I could ever imagine is one that would pay me to think… and the currency would be wine!
