Reader Submission: A Penny a Day


“I have been finding a penny a day for years and years! I have found pennies in the strangest places and at the strangest moments.

When it first started, I was working at the railroad and I had gone about 45 days of finding a penny every day until one day I got sick at work and had to go home with the flu. I walked in my front door thinking ‘I haven’t found my penny today,’ and I knew I was going to bed because I felt awful! However, because I got too dirty working at the railroad, I had to take a shower before I got in bed, even though I was sick. So I took off my clothes and got in the shower, all the while thinking ‘I haven’t found my penny for today!’ Suddenly, I heard a coin drop behind me in the shower. I turned around, and there in the bathtub with me was a shiny penny!

My wife’s explanation was that there was a penny on the bed and when I sat on the bed, the penny stuck to my naked butt and when I got in the shower I washed it off. I told her that may be so, but all I know is when I asked for my daily penny it fell into the bathtub with me! I have been finding pennies every day since then, and I take it as God’s notice to me that I should trust in him every day because it says on the penny ‘In God we Trust.’ The penny is God’s way of reminding me every day to trust in Him!”

  1. Or it’s Papa Legba’s notice. The Vodoun God of the Crossroads. People pay him three pennies at a Crossroads or Railroad which are his abodes.
