glimpses and revelations

Has life ever been eerily prophetic and seemingly carefully orchestrated to you?  Have you ever been able to look back and see, like a puzzle, how certain things that happened led to something in the future, as if it were all meant to be?  Isn’t it fascinating that even bad things can work together for good and that what you cannot see now you might be able to see crystal clear in the future and then gasp in awe?
