A package from God

No kidding. On Valentine’s Day I got a package from a publisher, which evidently uses some kind of automated lettering system, and it just so happens that the letters showed up as “G-O-D.” Check it out by clicking on the image to get a biggrer size:
Thanks to Boaz for spotting the sender and to Chris Ridgeway for converting it into a .jpg file for me.

That’s hilarious. A package from God on Valentine’s Day. Was it full of books? I hear he knows everything about us, so he must have known what you love!

Hmm, so God uses UPS when he wants to send a package? That’d be a heck of an endorsement for the guys in brown.

It looks like either God or Goo, depending on your view

I knew you were good, Scot, but I didn’t know you had that kind of direct line to God!

Doug P,
It was a book about world religions sent to me because I’m a professor.

I wonder if the fine folks at FedEx know that they are not God’s preferred package carrier?

In a similar vein, when I comment on a post and check the ‘Notify me of followup comments via e-mail’, my free webmail provider tells me I have mail from Jesus Creed, and asks whether I would like to invite Jesus to GMail?

That is too funny man. What is the acronym for? Meaning the whole company name?
Or maybe just maybe it was the hand of God changing the From: Line before arrival? mmmmm…., betta watch out Scot! By the way, I just picked up both the Creed and Embracing Grace. I am looking forward to the reads.
