I was at a fundraising dinner and part of the program included a silent auction. I love silent auctions! There was a book that covered all the native plants found on Little Gasparilla Island. I really wanted that book so I placed a bid and then kept my eye on it. For almost an hour no one outbid me. Then it happened, someone placed a bid under me. I bumped the bid by a couple of dollars and then left it alone. To my disappointment someone had outbid me and I left empty handed. I get back home and our friends pulled up in the yard with the book. They were bidding against me so they could give it to me as a gift. I was absolutely thrilled. Is there is something that you've waited for and thought it was lost? Maybe God wants to give you a blessing. As we wait for Jesus' return we must be patient; His return will be the ultimate gift and an amazing surprise!
But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:25
