A Coincidence? Maybe... But Then Again...

In his homily this morning, Fr. Anthony mentioned a book, "The Hiding Place," by Corrie Ten Boom.
Later today, I was reading "A View From The Top," by Margaret Jensen, and she made reference to that very same book!
It could have been a coincidence, but then again, it could have been God's way of telling me that I should read this book.  Should read usually turns me off, but when it comes from God, that is a different matter.
I've just ordered a copy!
