Then my husband called and said that he’d been shorted vacation hours ever since he took this job and now has five extra days of vacation! Later he called and told me that Taco John’s was giving away tacos so why didn’t we do that for supper, and I didn’t have to cook.
A couple of things just melted my heart. I walked into my oldest daughter’s bedroom, and she was sitting there reading her Bible. When I asked her why, she said, “I love the book of Matthew.”
My six-year-old had found a little chunk of tile that morning and she was very proud of it. It really was pretty with a swirl of blue on one side. She carried it around all day. In the evening she came and told me she had something to give me. She presented me with her treasured rock and said, “I wanted to give you this . . . for Thanksgiving.”
Then later she made me laugh when she came to me ready with her memory verse, “Pray without sneezing!” (It should have been, “Pray without ceasing,” from 1 Thessalonian 5:17.)
