Devotions from Judy’s heart

Tonight we feel the joy of the lost lamb that was found or like the woman who found her lost coin after lighting her lamp and sweeping her floor. Today we took the grandkids to the Charleston Aquarium and had such a fun day. But when we got to the car to go home, Al said he didn’t have his billfold! Oh my, the stress we all went through and prayers went up immediately.  We went back to the Aquarium and combed the place as best we could. We started thinking of the consequences since we are only on the first leg of our journey and need our credit cards, Driver’s license to get back in to the Base etc. The kids were very cooperative and felt bad for grandpa. We had planned to stop to eat on the way home but instead went right home. But to the joy of all of us, Ann met us at the door to tell us Al had left his billfold on the table and never had it in his pocket. We started cheering and thanking the Lord with all of our hearts, and went out to celebrate. I felt like the woman in Luke 15:9 who called together her friends to share her joy.  “Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin. In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”  What we found was important to us, but not like the joy of a lost soul who is found!
