1-13-14: Has there ever been a time in your life when someone told you that something improbable would happen and it did?

Or did the event simply seem to occur without any assistance from you? Recall what happened and include your feelings when you heard the event predicted and when it occurred. If you do not have a personal story, then you may use a friend’s story or make a connection to another text.
