1. sudden realization: a sudden intuitive leap of understanding, especially through an ordinary but striking occurrence
2. appearance of god: the supposed manifestation of a divine being
I love this word!
It makes me feel smart just to say it (even though I can’t spell it. Thanks for the computer correction).
I always thought that it just meant ‘sudden realization’. So, it was a wonderful surprise to learn that it also means ‘appearance of God’.
How great is that?
And you wanna know what’s even better?
I had one!
And I yelled "What?"
And it makes no sense.
And even I can’t believe it.
And it jolted me.
It’s wonderful and terrifying and foolish and exhilarating and wildly unlike me.
But I had it and I’m not sure that you can go back from an epiphany.
(yep, I still had to look to see how to spell it.)
-- and suddenly their eyes were opened -- (Luke 24:31)
