A good friend of mine (who gave me permission to write this) has been struggling with her position in life. Like all of us do at some point, she has been praying for the opportunity to make more money, get a bigger house and provide better for her family. So often when the things we pray for don't get fulfilled in "our" time we start to get discouraged. We start wondering if God is really listening. During a busy day while watching 6 kids she walked into her backyard to tend to her garden. Her mind was on all the things that needed her attention and her strong desire to provide for her family. When suddenly she noticed something in the grass. She looked down to exam it closer and saw a cross. It was a cross she had never seen before, she didn't know where it came from. When she picked it up in her hands she was flooded with the feeling that God had not forgotten her, and that her prayers would be answered in God's time and in God's way.
