All the grandkids were visiting for Thanksgiving. Before dinner, Grandma made a lengthy speech about being thankful for her extra-special blessings, her four grandchildren. Two seconds after she stopped speaking, craziness ensued and the kids were yelling and grabbing for the home-made rolls. Grandma sat there, eyes closed with a tight squint on her face. When asked what was the matter, she replied, “I’m just praying for a little patience to handle all these blessings.”
“As soon as I get some grip on reality, I’m going to choke it.”
Thought for the day
Eliezer had to pay a price to get Rebekah to come back with him and marry Isaac. Genesis 24:53 says, “Then he brought out gold and silver and articles of clothing and gave them to Rebekah; he also gave expensive gifts to her brother and her mother.” Great goals require great sacrifice.
