He Knows Our Desires

My son was sitting at the bar typing his talk for church in two hours.  I was sautéing zuccinni and onions. The essence of savory foods started filling the house and inviting the children to wake.  Before they made it to the kitchen, we were enjoying a minute of relative quiet.  "Mom, what does 'and a hair of his head shall not fall to the ground unnoticed' mean?"  Humbled, I looked up from the frying pan.  "To me it means God knows us.  He knows our thoughts, our feelings, our words, and everything we do.  He knows our desires."  He nodded and turned back to the computer.  His talk would not mention the ideas discussed.   His life experiences will test the reasoning.

I marveled again, offering a little prayer of thanks that I had taken  the few minutes to fry up a breakfast.  In the mindless stirring of a frying pan came the opportunity to teach, to witness.  God knows us,  He loves us enough to hear the very desires of our hearts.

Breakfast:  Scrambled Eggs with diced Zuccini, onions, and a roma tomato
Lunch: Leftover vegetable soup from yesterday and eggs from breakfast.
Dinner: Steamed broccoli;  rice with hamburger, onions, and peppers;  Lettuce wedge.
