Jon and I had the pleasure of spending the first week of October at a cabin located on the north shore of Lake Superior. Another couple was able to come also and we had great fellowship and hiking. Early one morning, I went out to the shore to have devotions. During my prayer time, I prayed that my words and actions for the entire day would benefit the group and that I would put their needs above my own.
Minutes later, upon returning to the cabin, I found I had locked myself out. The entire bottom of the cabin is garage with the living quarters on the second floor. I didn’t want to run any risk of breaking or chipping a window, so I found a stick and attempted to get someone’s attention by hitting the second floor window. I am so grateful that our family finances aren’t dependent upon my pitching in a professional baseball team, as we would be dead broke. After several feeble (and that’s being generous) attempts I managed to hit the window which went unnoticed. I was finally missed and someone came to look for me. I’m thankful that God knows when I need others to help me even when I haven’t asked.
