Quote of the Day Brings Laughter

The daily quote on my calendar today made me chuckle.

"God always gives more than we ask." (Saint Marie-Victoire Couderc)

My immediate mental response was "No kidding."

Because sometimes God definitely gives what I wasn't even going to ask for.

And sometimes, his definition of "more" isn't quite what I had in mind.

For that matter, sometimes his definition of what I ask isn't quite what I had in mind.

I've glanced at the calendar off and on all day, and had to smile. Both at the reminder that God does indeed answer, and the chuckle that has come as I remember how rarely those were the answers I was in fact, looking for!
