Carnival. Crowded. Lots of children, cousins, extended family.
Then…our own three-year-old Matthew disappears.
Panic! Everyone scatters, searching.
I stand motionless, not leaving the spot where he was last seen.
“Oh Lord God, I praise and thank You because You know where he is.
I worship You and I trust You, Lord. This problem is not too big for You. Thank You, that Matt is in Your care. Bring him back safely. I’m asking in the strong name of Jesus.”
A family member shakes me. “What is wrong with you! Your baby is missing and you just stand here?”
We look up and suddenly there is Uncle David walking through the crowd toward us, carrying Matt on his shoulders.
Matt is smiling, waving. “Mommy! Daddy! I see ice cream! I want ice cream!”

- SONG: DEAR LORD OF LORDS by Kathleen:
[This life is temporary. This life is short. When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever. Where will the “real you” live? Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?
