Please read, it is a very eye opening passage.

I literally copied and pasted this from Lorie’s guestbook. It is so very true. God works in His own time. We do not always see what he wants us to see. If you had asked me 6 years ago if I thought Taylor’s cancer was a blessing, I would have thought you NUTS! However, now, I can see it as a blessing. I am closer to God, closer to the church, closer to family. I know who my “friends” are. I have ne family and friends. I have fabulous medical friends. I have the ability to not sweat the small stuff and I could go on and on. Am I glad it was my kid? Well, no, I am sure none of us wish it, but it happened and I NOW know how to find the good in it. Have a blessed day and don’t throw away a blessing if it is not what you expected.

A young man was getting ready to graduate college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer’s showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.
As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation his father called him into his private
study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son
a beautiful wrapped gift box.
Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible. Angrily,
he raised his voice at his father and said, “With all your money you give me a Bible?” and stormed out of the house, leaving the holy book.
Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business.
He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He
had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had
passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care things.
When he arrived at his father’s house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart.
He began to search his father’s important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. As he
read those words, a car key dropped from an envelope taped behind the Bible.
It had a tag with the dealer’s name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation,
and the words…PAID IN FULL.

How many times do we miss God’s blessings because they are not
packaged as we expected?

  1. GIRL, I WISH you could see the chill bumps on my arms!!!!!!!!! HOW TRUE!!!! This is something to really think about…in many different ways. Thank you for posting it. Glad Taylor is doing so well, even if he thinks he’s in trouble! No kid EVER wants a note sent home to a parent.I used to not mind when mom was a homeroom parent, but as I got older, I didn’t want her there! We are having our 25th anniversary party Sunday, anniversary was yesterday, and my mom is heading it up…about to drive me nuts with all the questions, calls, etc! She’s having fun though and I’m just letting her enjoy it. I guess school and homework have finally settled in…how are they handling it all? We will be going to the beach next week end…going back to Orange Beach. Let me know if yall are going to be in the area! Love to the boys! Cathi
