The Fourth Ticket.
I’m a target shooter and a member of a women’s shooting club. I was in the Air Force and earned the Marksman badge with an M16 rifle after only two tries. That made me think that someday I might like to try target shooting as a sport.
The club was holding a raffle for a very nice rifle. We’d been buying tickets for quite some time. The Club had made it clear that until a certain dollar amount of raffle tickets had been bought, they couldn’t give away the rifle.
News came that the rifle was to be given away at the next event. I decided to buy a few more tickets online. My first thought was three, but just before paying for them the Universe told me to buy one more because that fourth ticket was the one that would win.
When I got to the event other women were still buying tickets before the raffle. I got anxious seeing this because I really wanted the gun and I got in line to buy more tickets.
But the Universe reminded me that I didn’t need to buy any more tickets because that fourth ticket was the one that was going to win. I stepped out of line and reminded myself of that throughout the day and told anyone who mentioned the rifle that I was going to win and why.
The raffle was drawn at the end of the day. I have to tell you, I still yelled for joy when my name was called!! And then I was able to tell everyone about believing in that fourth ticket!
