A popcorn maker. A way cool, watch it pop, eat it hot and crispy, choose your own flavors popcorn maker. This cool "thing" was given to me (us) by another family in our life group. It has been well used and much loved, and I think it will find it's new home very enjoyable.
God is awesome!!!! I have so many more faith building "things" that God has given me over the years, but I won't bore you with all of them. Just remember:
"Search me, O God, and know my heart." Ps 139:23
"How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!!" Ps 139:17
"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!" Matt 7:11
I'm not a bible scholar, but in my humble opinion, I think that God searches our heart in more ways than one, thinks about us a million times and "plots" the best way to bless us and then he gives us the little "things" that he finds us wanting. Because he IS our Father and he loves us and wants to give us good gifts. And just like any parent, it is fun to give your kids surprises and gifts that you know they want, but they haven't asked you for.
Jesus, thank you for being a generous, giving Father. Thank you for seeing the little "things" and choosing to bless us with them. For spoiling us and helping us find joy in the simple. You are wonderful and I am proud to call you Daddy.
