This story started the day I took my son's cat to the vet.
The doctor was amazed at how fast the cat had healed. I told him the cat had been ill for sometime since living in an inner city apartment. The cat caught a mouse that had eaten poison.
Now, don't frown, the cat is doing amazing well--this is only the start of this story :)
The vet turned to me and said, "Yes, having pets around us brings out the stories..why this winter I took my wife on a trip to Cancun. There was a conference going on at the time. I figured it would get her away from this long spell of freezing temperatures and snow.
"She laid in sun for eight days and felt quite good. We packed for our trip back to our winter home and climbed into the taxi. When I took my seat on the airplane I realized I couldn't find my ipad. I had stored all my notes from the conference there. I felt bad about it, but knew I would survive.
"We arrived at our house, cranked up the heat, and unpacked our bags. Before sitting down to reconstruct information I'd remembered from the conference, I checked FB and found a message. Someone had found my ipad wedged between the seats in the taxi. They gave it to the taxi driver to hold for me.
"I hit replay to type a message but was interrupted by my wife. She'd checked the answering machine. My boss had called and asked me to attend a special training session in Cancun. I needed to leave in three days, all my flight and hotel arrangements had been made.
"Unbelievable timing. I FB messaged the person who found my ipad and thanked them. I then contacted the taxi company and requested the same driver to pick me up at the Cancun airport.
"Who would have expected such events to happen in the needed order and timing to get my ipad back to me?"
I must admit I was very excited to listen to him tell this story, but kinda wondered where the pet part would enter. It didn't. He just wanted to share this amazing story of what God had done because he was happy about how my son's cat had improved.
The Bible tells the story of a woman who lost a coin. She cleaned her house from ceiling to floor, every inch. She cleaned it again, searching in every corner, every cupboard, every drawer, and under every piece of furniture. At long last she found the coin. Her excitement caused her to leave her broom in the middle of the floor as she ran out of her house to tell her neighbors. "Guess what!" she said. She retold the story several times giving God the glory at each retelling.
Your turn: Tell something that gives God the glory.
