Hope Challenge

Day 5:

1.  Ask God:   I wanted to take a window AC to Beth.  I needed a Phillips screwdriver to complete the task.  I knew most of my stuff was packed away in boxes,  and would be extremely difficult to find, so  I prayed:  “Lord, please let me find a screwdriver, so I can take this AC to Beth.”  I looked in the closets upstairs and then headed for the kitchen to search the drawers.  No screwdriver.  Knowing I needed to get on the road, (Beth lives two hours away) in desperation, I pleaded once again, “Dear Lord, PLEASE help me to find a screwdriver.”   I went outside opened the closet in our garage and there it sat, the screwdriver, waiting patiently for me to pluck from the shelf.  As I ran upstairs to dismantle the AC I said another prayer.  “Thank you, Lord.”  

2.  Something Fun:  Spent the day with my daughter, going out to eat and taking in a movie, and it was wonderful.  

3.  Be a blessing:  Held the door for a stranger at the mall.

4.  Be Thankful:  Lord, thank you so much for my daughter, and thank you for helping her get her Master’s degree in psychology.  Also thank you that she already has a job in her field even though she doesn’t graduate until June.  Amen  (I’m so proud of her!)
