Was this God sent?

Ten years ago at the age of fifty I decided to become confirmed in the Christian faith. I didn't have a bible so went to buy one. Whilst on the way to town my husband and I passed a bric a brac shop we'd never been in before and decided to have a look in. Whilst in there I spotted a really nice bible in good condition so thought I'd buy it. When I went to enquire about the price the man said he couldn't sell it to me, I was disappointed but that was that. However, just as I was about to leave the shop he called after me, 'I can't sell it to you because it's a Gideon Bible and I'm not allowed to sell it but you can have it for nothing.' What we are calling coincidence here I've always thought as a little gift from God and the thought has always thrilled me to bits.
