My sweet fella went over to the store
after his Bible Study this morning,
and found my camera!!!!

Of course it was right in plain sight.
I had walked by it a dozen times,
and did not see it.

What is 'funny', is that I came away
from my quiet time this morning,
"Lord, I am confident you will bring it back to me"
"Wouldn't it be funny if Scott went over
to the shop and found it."

So, when I heard his key in the back door,
I greeted him with excitement, saying,
"You found my camera didn't you!"

What's really great, is in that moment,
the Lord showed me how when we are lost,
and 'find' Him again, how happy He is.
How excited He is!
(I know that is a whole bigger thing,
but hope you get what I'm saying.)

In Zeph. 3:17,
part of it says.
"He will take great delight in you!
He will quiet you with His love.
He will rejoice over you with singing!"

Thanks for your prayers about my camera.
Blessings on you day.

What a blessing! I agree! Nothing is ever actually lost because I know the Lord knows where everything is. I just get frustrated sometimes with the time it takes for me to find it. I learn a lot in the process of looking... and in that process, find treasures I thought were lost. Blessings, BJ

The Lord delights in US! Isn't that amazing? I have lost two of my precious Momma's mourning broaches and can not find them anywhere. I have looked high and low with no results but I KNOW that the Lord cares that they are important to me. So I continue to pray. I lost a jewel box that had all of my best pearls and gold bracelet. I continued to pray...One year later I found them in a box that I was going to send to the kidney foundation. Why would HE care? Because I am His child and He cares for me. Praise the Lord for answering even silly little prayers. In the light of eternity it is of no value but to comfort us & tell us we are loved by a heavenly Father...Blessings and rejoicing with you, Sharon

Isn't God good?! That is one of my favorite verses-it really spoke to me during a very rough time...
