Sometimes, when I’m praying, meditating, or just standing at the sink in the bathroom washing my face, I receive an answer to a thought or a long-time, ongoing question. The feeling of the presence comes over me and my whole being smiles with a beautiful little chuckle of, “Aha” and a powerful wave of gratitude.

This way of receiving answers reminds me of when I was in school and I’d look in the back of my math book for the answers to my homework problems, except now I don’t feel guilty ……. Finally, I’ve realized that life is an open book test and God will give us the answers for our life any way we’ll take them. However, we do have to open the book, and our hearts, and minds and look for them.
