The Sunday school class in which I teach is the high school one – 9th to 12th grades. On a Sunday a while back I was given a gift that I consider to be a great honor. One of the young ladies from the class made a pencil drawing for me and put it in a frame. It was a drawing depicting one of my favorite articles of lesson illustration, a carton of Breyers vanilla ice cream – with real vanilla specks. This happens to be one of my favorite desserts as well - you probably guessed that.

Obviously I have used this consumable illustration - in great luscious description - on several occasions and quite possibly left the class craving a large dish of the stuff. The picture was very good artistically down to the smallest detail, but what really impressed me about the gift was that the young lady took the time to hand draw this and even prepare it for hanging on my wall - and that’s where it will be. Then if I get discouraged, all I have to do is look up there and realize that someone was actually listening.

I needed that – God knew it and impressed someone to do it. And I’m so impressed – with God’s goodness. ec

I love when God takes me by surprise. It's one of my favorite things about Him. Just the way He loves me is so humbling and wows my socks off at the same time. I'm astounded daily by His care and concern for me. Sigh....

Hey Mr. Eddie,

May I put a link to your blog on my blog? The people who read my blog probably need something of substance to read, so I thought of adding your blog to the list of links to blogs that my brilliant friends write.
