"Godwinks" 16x20 original artwork, acrylic on canvas
Ladybugs are my good luck sign. When I’ve been worried about something or I need a sign that I’m on the right path, countless times a ladybug just appears and it feels like a wink from God.
The term “God wink” is defined as an event or personal experience, often identified as coincidence, so astonishing that it is seen as a sign of divine intervention, especially when perceived as the answer to a prayer.
Lady bugs are my God wink. A ladybug showed up on a piece of furniture the day we moved into our new house, there was one on the wall in Gus’ nursery a few days before he was born, and one on the car door as I loaded the boys into their carseats on the first day of school. Just last week, the imposter syndrome was hitting me hard as I prepped my art for this drop, so I went on a walk to clear my head, and BAM a ladybug landed on my shirt.
They show up in other ways too. I’ll be having a hard day, then randomly ladybug artwork comes home in my son’s backpack. I’ve felt anxious at an appointment and the doctor comes in wearing a ladybug lanyard.
It may seem like we have a ladybug infestation or something, but I choose to see them as God winks! A little reminder, right when I need it, that that God has a plan for me, and He is with me every step of the way.
I believe if you ask for signs, then look for them, you’ll see them.
I hope you experience God winks too!
