(Sorry DAD...This one is about you!!!!!)
When I was little, my Dad an Suzy took us on vacation...SOMEWHERE.
I cant really remember WHERE we went...BUT, I remember what happened when we got home.
We walked up to the house and the front window was busted out.
I will never forget that.
My Dad had us all stay outside an he went in to look around.
Of course...There was noone there anymore.
I can STILL remember walking into my Dad and Suzettes room and everything was on the floor....the drawers were emptied and all the doors were open.
It was soooo scary.
There were lots of things missing, BUT- the MOST valuable was the collection of $2 bills an silver dollars that my Papaw had given us.
It was sooooo sad...LOST FOREVER!!!!
I hadn't thought about it really AT ALL ....UNTIL yesterday.
Then...as SOME of you know- My Dad went into the hospital yesterday....UNEXPECTEDLY!
He had been having some chest pains at work and called Suzette.
They were both scared and went to the doctor who told them they needed to go to the hospital.
He was admitted last night and was to have an ANGIOPLASTY today.
As you can imagine ....I was FREAKING OUT!!!!!
I was so upset and for some reason..I glanced over on my desk and saw a small change purse that I had bought at a thrift store about a MONTH AGO.
I had never opened it when I bought it and had come home an thrown it on my desk...
I reached over and grabbed it.
I slowly opened the pouch...an was BLOWN AWAY by what I found!!!!
Inside this small pouch was a STACK of $2 bills!!!
It was a sign....My DADDY would be ok.
Give Thanks for having eyes OPENED enough to see the signs that GOD puts IN front of us!!!
The LORD loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of his unfailing love.
