  1. Beautiful my friend. I love how God transforms ashes into beauty and uses that beauty to inspire others. You are a blessing!

  2. Lovely analogy. There is nothing wrong with the asking, but it is our response to the wait that needs a little tweaking….Having more faith in his answers and time frame.

  3. Cathe,

    He hurried to the closest adult, to complain about how he did everything right, but wasn’t given what he was owed. And he deserved it! That sounds just like me sometimes. I complain about how things (mostly work) didn’t go the way I wanted them today–poor poor me! I have often found myself getting really upset & when looking back on it–how silly & stupid to complain again God & His wisdom!!

    Loved the post!

  4. Wow, sooo needed this today. Thank you!

    Boy oh boy, what a funny picture that is of that boy & the soda though – oh how frustrating that can be when we don’t get the pop we selected! LOL. Good analogy for the rest of life too, for reals.

  5. Cathie,

    I love how you took the time to observe this boy during the escapade with the vending machine. So often we miss the little life lessons that are all around us, if we would just take the time to STOP, LOOK, & LISTEN! What a great analogy of our relationship with the Father!!

  6. Ouch! Yep, that’s been me lately. The fruits of the Spirit that I’ve been praying for for a loooooong time seem to be even less evident in my life than when I started praying for them! And I’ve been telling God off… because why wouldn’t He want me to be more like Him? I’ve been asking, so if I’m not developing His character in my life, it must be His fault, right?!
    Sigh… you’re right. I need to back off, get rid of the attitude, and have a little more patience – oops, there’s one of those fruits again!
    I’m glad that He loves me, regardless!
