II Corinthians 1:3-5
3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 5For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.
I didn’t really think about what I was asking for……
I just knew that this Mother’s Day I didn’t really want four hanging plants for my front porch (that’s sort-of become a tradition here). I knew my summer is very busy and between keeping the flowers watered and the petals swept away I would end up with very sad-looking flowers.
One day while I was in WalMart,. I saw a beautiful quilt/comforter that I thought would be pretty in our bedroom..and it was actually less expensive than the normal four hanging plants.
I gave Tim the idea to do something a little different this year and told him about the comforter set.
Well, here it is! And I am thankful!
However, as I was thinking about what I had asked for and as I remembered saying the words, “I would really just like a comforter,” it hit me…
THAT’S REALLY ALL THAT I EVER WANT, AND IT’S DEFINITELY ALL THAT I EVER NEED!
Thankful for a God who knew that we would long for someone who could comfort us..thankful He sent His Son.
Thankful for a true Comforter!
