So if you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! ... Matthew 7:11
Owning only around 100 vintage Scholastic books, I felt I needed more (More. Must. Have. More.) so I went to Ebay where these tempted me like crazy:
Just a $4 opening bid and not one was a duplicate of what I've already stuffed upon my shelves. Rare, that.
But I wanted to be sensible, spend less with my credit card this month, so I thought, "I'll just bid the $4. That's it. If someone else bids higher, they can take them."
Time passed (as it will), I forgot what I'd done (as I do), and when I received a You-Won! email, I thought, "Huh? What did I win?" Then I opened it. And remembered.
Don't you love it when that happens? Already out upon our summery front porch I've read Irma's Big Lie, High Country Adventure and Jenny, Sam and the Invisible Hildegarde and well, they were awesome. How soothing, peaceful, to read retro kids' novels while a hectic, confused world swirls around me.
Now, don't laugh but it's felt like a birthday and Christmas and as though God smiled while He nudged me over to Ebay that day.
Yes, He knows me that well and I matter to Him that much. And so do you.

Last week I must have been in just the right mood, for I found it fascinating reading.
Here's a beautiful song by Lenny LeBlanc that some of you will love.
"When you have history with God, remembering what He’s done, you don’t get discouraged by every difficulty. You know God brought you through in the past, and He’ll bring you through in the future." ... Joel Osteen
