>Cast ALL your cares…

>

Our vacation on Bald Head Island, NC (pictured) got off to two great days, but Monday was cold, rainy and extremely windy.

But I ventured out on a jog/walk and walked down the beach to Cape Fear and watched, amazed, as waves crashed into each other over the submerged reefs. Along the way I collected shells.

Jane and I had walked the beach Saturday and discovered many broken sand dollars, and Jane said she really hoped to find a whole one.

As I walked I prayed about a lot of things, and specifically asked that I might find an entire sand dollar…

During part of the walk the wind was so hard I felt I was in the midst of a sandstorm…like getting a thousand shots a minute!

As I turned back I had a bucket full of shells, but, alas, no sand dollar.

Just as I got to the path leading back to our house, the Lord provided an answer…a nearly-complete sand dollar with all its’ markings.

Coincidence?

Well, my experience is that “coincidences” happen a lot more often when I pray!

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
