Thanks for stopping by, even if you did so serendipitously.
I never scrolled up to see that was Chris's blog!I saw your comment in recent history- just clicked over and started typing.Well, I guess not only do I admit not knowing the word- I am also not very observant!
That is kinda funny- Chris Cobler wrote a blog recently about serendipity. I had to do the same thing, looked it up- didn't have a clue. Those editors tend to have a much better knowledge of the English language-
I've always been good at English. In fact, my ACT score granted me six hours of English in college, but I've never known the meaning of "serendipity".
I first saw the word in Palacios, Texas at the "Serendipity RV Park". We had decided to take our small camper there for the weekend. The word caused my brain to go into overdrive. What does this mean, this word I've never seen?
"Definition of SERENDIPITY: the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for" -Merriam Webster Dictionary
Everyone has moments of serendipity. The moment you met your wife or husband and knew it. The first time you felt God's presence and knew it. The moment you first saw your newborn baby. In these moments, time freezes and an unnatural and unreal feeling comes across us.
So, perhaps "serendipity" has another definition as well: "The feeling one experiences when a special gift is bequeathed without any possible human or earthly explanation".
