Testimony to God’s Goodness
This event took place a couple of days before the Easter holidays.
Joe came to me about 15 minutes before he was due to leave for school, to tell me that he couldn’t find his glasses.
Now I must stress that Joe is very particular about where he leaves his glasses at bed time. When he gets into bed the last thing he does is to remove his glasses and put them on his bedside cupboard. So in the morning he knows exactly where they are.
So when he came to me that morning my first question was, “Have you looked on your bedside cupboard?” He said he had and assured me they weren’t there. I checked for myself just to make sure and he was right they weren’t there. We did all the usual, looked under the bed, on the floor, in the bathroom, in the kitchen, but we couldn’t find them any where. I decided to phone Jim to see if he had cleaned them, (Joe’s glasses always need cleaning) and to see if he had put them somewhere else. When I spoke to Jim he said he hadn’t seen Joe’s glasses and had we checked the bedside cupboard? We checked there again, still no glasses.
By this time Joe was starting to get a little panicky. Without his glasses he wouldn’t be able to do his school work and he was worried his teacher would tell him off. I wrote Joe a note to give to the teacher and suggested he start walking to school and if I found his glasses I would bring them straight to school. Joe left with his friend and walked slowly up the road.
