Lost and Found

My son lost this sled just before Christmas and I found it on my walk the other morning.  We live in a golf course community and it was laying just beside the golf path on hole number 1!  Quite a ways from where he left it in our yard more than 2 months ago!  I just couldn't believe my eyes!  I had prayed for it to be found  but my faith was pretty weak due to strong wind gusts that could have blown it anywhere. 

At the time I was torn as a parent between teaching him responsibility and having mercy on him for his forgetfulness.  Do we as parents ever get to the point of knowing exactly how to train our children??   More importantly our Heavenly Father knows; He is the best parent hands down! He cares for us so very much that he would "keep" this sled safe through wind, snow, ice and a warm spell for my eyes to find it.  My son was astounded when I told him.

"But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Do not be struck with fear or seized with alarm; you are of greater worth than many flocks of sparrows."  Luke 12:7
