God's mysterious ways... The Ant and the Contact Lens: a true story
She thought, 'Lord, You can see all these mountains. You know every stone and leaf,
and You know exactly where my contact lens is. Please help me.'
Later, when they had hiked down the trail to the bottom of the cliff they met another party of climbers just starting up the face of the cliff. One of them shouted out, 'Hey, you guys! Anybody lose a contact lens?'
Well, that would be startling enough, but you know why the climber saw it? An ant was moving slowly across a twig on the face of the rock, carrying it!
The story doesn't end there. Brenda's father is a cartoonist. When she told him the incredible story of the ant, the prayer, and the contact lens, he drew a cartoon of an ant lugging that contact lens with the caption,'Lord, I don't know why You want me to carry this thing. I can't eat it, and it's awfully heavy. But if this is what You want me to do, I'll carry it for You'
I think it would do all of us some good to say, 'God, I don't know why You want me to carry this load. I can see no good in it and it's awfully heavy. But, if You want me to carry it, I will.'
God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called.
If you love GOD and are not ashamed of all the marvelous things He has done for you,

Today is a busy day as the Christian Women's Job Corp started today and I was scheduled to give my testimony at 8:30 this morning. Part of my testimony includes Becky Tirabassi's book "Let Prayer Change Your Life", so I discussed her book and each woman received a book and a journal so that they will be encouraged to journal themselves. At 11:00 this morning I started teaching Word. Word lasts about six weeks and then I will teach Excel. I am so excited this year about teaching and can't wait to see women whose lives are transformed in just a few months. What an amazing ministry!
Tomorrow is G's last basketball game with the school. I am excited that my dad is going to come and watch him play tomorrow. Speaking of Dad, I am so thankful that the tornadoes didn't effect him or my mom's house. They live only 40 minutes from Lone Grove, Oklahoma. My sister, Kelly, lives near Oklahoma City. Too close for me!
What is pressing me right now is trying to get the tax information together to hand off to the CPA. It seems to take many weeks for me to do this. You should see my office right now!
Hope you are having a good week!
