If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him.Matthew 7:11.
God knows exactly what we need no matter what it is,
And what we receive is surely a decision that is His.
He knows how to give good things to those who pray,
And He can do this all the time, even from day to day.
Evil parents know how to give good things to their own,
God certainly does wonderful things; we are never alone.
Let us learn to ask Him for the things we want Him to provide,
And rejoice and praise Him for the things that'll be supplied. (RP)
All week we planned on going to Izzy Schopf's funeral today near Bothell, Washington. This morning Margie awakened very ill. She had a very good night but early this morning got sick. She is now resting in her lift chair but is pretty well wiped out. We talked about this last night. If for some reason she did not feel up to it, we would not go. She had all her clothes picked out for the trip, but now that won't happen. Thankfully we know the Lord is in charge. I only lament not going to this service because Jake Schopf (pastor) came to our daughter's memorial service and we were honored to have him there, and we wanted to be there for him in his mother's service. Thanks for praying.
