Mysterious Ways

I used to think that only God worked in mysterious ways, but in the past few years I’ve learned that Marlene does too…..and she’s at it again. On Monday evening I was relaxing in front of the television enjoying a glass of wine, when I was interrupted by the telephone. I picked it up and said, “Hello?” The male voice on the other end said hello too. I repeated, “Hello?” So did he. Somewhat slightly annoyed, I said, “Can I help you?”

“Well, no,” he answered, “can I help you?”

I replied, “No. You called me.”

“No. I didn’t.” Came his reponse.”You called me.”

After a few minutes of going back and forth I learned that the young man on the line had picked up his ringing phone and heard my voice on the line. I also discovered that he is a co-worker of Marlene’s son, Stewart…..and he was calling from work! With my confusion now under control I realized Marlene was up to something. With that, I asked Matt if Stewart was in the building and he wasn’t sure, but asked if I wanted him paged. That’s when I was prompted to explain. I told Matt that I’m a medium who had worked quite closely with Stewart and his Mom after her death. Matt picked up on the medium thing and said,”That means you can hear dead people right?” I confirmed it and he said, “That is so cool. I’ve been wanting to talk to someone like you, but didn’t know how to go about finding one.” I gave him my full name and phone number and suggested he get in touch with me when he was ready. Totally blown away by the unusual hook-up we both hung up. I have no doubt that Marlene was directing the whole thing. She never ceases to amaze me!
