My daughter, who is in kindergarten, wrote a four-page instructional manual with four steps of how to get dressed.  In my presence, her teacher passed out the manual and told her she did a good job.  I took the manual and glanced at the topic, which immediately whetted my appetite for this delicious, medium-well sirloin.   So, I got out my knife, fork, and napkin and got ready to dig in.   

The first thing she wrote was, “First you put your shoes on.  Next you put your stockings on.”  And so on, and so on.  The first thought I had was, “God, you mean I’ve been dressing my child with shoes before stockings all this time!"  I was a little perturbed.

Then I looked at the entire presentation and saw that in addition to her good topic choice, she spelled well.  Then I said, “This is beautiful, baby; but when I dress you in the morning, do I put the shoes on before the stockings?”  She didn’t respond, but I could see in her eyes she understood where I was going.  She knows how to get dressed.  She does it on her own, sometimes, and yet she wrote what she wrote.

A few weeks later, while I was working on a quote idea, it dawned on me that “putting shoes on before stockings” was exactly what I had been searching for, for weeks to complete this quote.  I just lifted up my hands and said, “God, you’re Awesome!”   He never ceases to amaze me, and He will never cease to amaze you!   Give Him praise!  If you could just be patient, everything you need will be placed at your feet.
