Many of us find pennies in our pathways – shiny or old, in the parking lot or on the sidewalk, or any number of odd places. I always interpret them to mean I am on the right track. Then a friend of mine reported to me that she had found a quarter and rightly interpreted it to mean that God was giving her a raise! I loved that interpretation. Not long after that, I was on my regular morning walk. I was on a part of my street with no sidewalks, so I was just walking down the street itself past an empty lot. There were no houses nearby or no cars parked in that area. But there right in my pathway was a folded up dollar bill! Well, I surmised, God has given me a bonus!
Note: this was long before the more recent danger of dollars like this tainted with drugs being left on the sidewalk. Be aware!
