Okay… this is too funny not to share!
In 2001 my book, “Divine Intuition” was first published. Since then it’s become a classic in the field of intuition and been printed in over 14 languages. It’s been a steady seller and the book I’m most known for. Over the past few months I’ve been entertaining the fantasy that Dorling Kindersley, the publisher, was going to issue a 10th anniversary issue. So imagine my surprise when my literary agent calls with the news that DK has decided to no longer publish “Divine.”
Now, without going into all the details, let’s just say when I heard the news I had a meltdown. I cried and yelled at God about how unfair this was, how hard I’d worked to promote the book and how betrayed and abandoned I felt.
The next day I was still feeling pretty bad, but perhaps a little calmer. In fact, I had even awakened with a few fledging ideas about a new project.
I was confused and a bit ambivalent about this new idea, so I asked God for a sign that I was headed in the right direction. I was expecting an unusual butterfly or bird to show up, a song on the radio, or some words on a billboard . . . you know, the usual kind of “sign from God” thing.
All day long nothing out of the ordinary happens. However, every time I felt discouraged, I just kept repeating, “God, I want to know that Your hand is on my life.”
By the evening, nothing. No sign from God. At this point I decided that the only thing that was going to make me feel better was a good, old-fashioned, hot fudge sundae. So off we went to the local Dairy Queen, where the following image showed up as part of the topping.
P.S. The sundae was divine
