Not saying I am special or anything. But, after talking with my sister, it got me thinking. What is so strange about my situation?

My birthday is Oct. 23, but wait. All three of my kids were born on the 23rd. Not only that, my expecting baby has a due date of Dec. 23

So it is:

Me: Oct. 23

Oldest Son: Sep. 23
2nd Oldest: Mar. 23
3rd Oldest: Aug. 23
New Baby: Due Date - Dec. 23

Is there any significance to the number 23?

*Also, I heard there were once 23 books in Revelations, anyone has any information on this, I have been searching and searching.

I don't think it's significant, just very lucky.

Also, there are only 22 chapters (the Bible is divided into books, and books into chapters) in Revelation, not 23. If there were 23, it would just be a coincidence.

Fun fact: the odds of your children's birthdays (not counting the due date or leap years) all being on the same day (assuming it's random) is 1 out of 17 748 900 625 (assuming my math is correct, and it might not be. 365 times 365 times 365 times 365, right?).

Thanks for the fun fact, I never heard of this one before!

I don't want to turn this into a bible thread. But, I've heard that in the ancient bible it has the 23rd chapter, as well as the lines in Chapter 22 it shows it goes onto another chapter? Just something I've looked around the internet.

Hey. In the occult, the number 23 is linked to some old but not too powerful stuff, and to newer very powerful stuff.

Look at ways your destiny may be tied to tearing down the old structures and systems, and bring new life and vitality into things. You may be an agent of powerful change, whether you know it or not.
