Our family devotions this morning were interupted by a knock on our door and then the chime of our doorbell. The kids ran to see who it might be, and there laying on the ground was a long box. They quickly brought the box in and tore into it. There before us lay 18 of the most beautiful roses--sent to me expressly by my pastor and his wife for mother's day.

I arranged them in the beautiful vase they came in, and then set our dining room table with our china. I was so excited that the colors in the roses EXACTLY MATCH MY OLD COUNTRY ROSES CHINA!!!

I am still in awe, and so humbled by such a generous gesture. "Thank you Jesus for putting us in a church with such a capable and loving pastor."
