God's Birthday Gift to Katie

September has been a great month. It has been filled with a variety of things. We were able to celebrate 3 birthdays, Drew's, Katie's & mine. I was praying that God would help me to make Katie's last birthday in the states very special and full of good memories with her friends to carry with her as we head off to Cameroon and He helped it to all work out. I was reminded of how we don't need to beg and plead for God to be good to us. God is a gracious and generous Heavenly Father who delights to give His children good gifts. Now we might not always get what we want and when we want it but that is also because He is a good Father. He knows what is best and He knows our hearts needs and that day He saw the desires of a little girl getting ready for a big change in her life and knew her need. I believe He was just as delighted as I was to see the smiles and laughter of a little 12 year old girl and her friends that day. He gave her the gift of good friendship and a day of great memories. I am so thankful for His goodness. He cares for everyone of us and is always present. What a joy to serve such a God as ours!
