Finding Lost Keys Good Reason for Being Happy
Rejoice with me for I have found my keys, which were lost!
Often we don’t need a special occasion to kick up the heels, but is finding lost keys enough to celebrate? Consider the vehicle keys found on a rock.
It’s the end of the day and the search of every pocket is fruitless. The mental rewind traces the steps taken earlier. A few of them were near a body of water surrounded by native plants and quartzite stone. Needle in a haystack time and there would be about an hour of daylight to search. Can you imagine breaking out the flashlight in a futile attempt to locate shiny metal attached to black plastic? Rummaging through tightly cramped desk drawers or paper covered counter tops is one thing, but outdoors in the elements even a wild critter could take a liking to stashing a funky looking object.
The first line of this passage is a paraphrase of Holy Scripture because it is through the grace of God that within 15 minutes of looking, my keys were retrieved. Friend that’s a lot better than scouring the city of Sioux Falls. With the keys stowed securely, the time had arrived for a happy dance. No doubt you’ve had the experience of a successful search.
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth.
