I hired a plumber to help me restore an old farmhouse, and
after he hadjust finished a rough first day
on the job: a flat tire made him lose an
hour of work, his electric drill quit and his ancient one ton truck
refused to start.
While I drove him home, he sat in stony silence. On arriving, he invited
me in to meet his family. As we walked toward the front door, he paused
briefly at a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both
When opening the door he underwent an amazing transformation.. His face
was wreathed in smiles and he hugged his two small children and gave his
wife a kiss.
Afterward he walked me to the car. We passed the tree and my curiosity
got the better of me. I asked him about what I had seen him do
'Oh, that's my trouble tree,' he replied 'I know I can't help having
troubles on the job, but one thing's for sure, those troubles don't
belong in the house with my wife and the children.. So I just hang them
up on the tree every night when I come home and ask God to take care of
them. Then in the morning I pick them up again.' 'Funny thing is,' he
smiled,' when I come out in the morning to pick 'em up, there aren't
nearly as many as I remember hanging up the night before.'

I've been helping with the 5 year olds Sunday School and children's Church class on Sunday mornings. There aren't many in the class, three
regulars (two girls and a boy). Yesterday the main teacher was out so I had the opportunity to teach by myself. The girls were there, but the Austin was out.
The lesson was on how God cares for the flowers of the fields and birds of the air (something I need to take to heart). I must have rushed it a bit because
we had extra play time at the end. I felt a little guilty so I asked the girls what they'd tell their parents they'd learned that day. They replied,
"balloons" because we were playing a balloon game. I asked if there was something else and they replied "blocks" because they'd played
with them too. I said, I'll give you a hint and pointed at a picture of birds and flowers. To which Kennedy replied, "God doesn't care about the
birds or flowers." I think they missed the point! I ended the discussion by saying that He does, He just cares about us more.
