There is also a good thing that I received which I did not expect. Like for example, I got a bit of a raise in job. I was pretty happy about that. That must indicate that they like my work.
On my ninth birthday, I got a pair of roller skates from my parents. At first I was not so sure if I was pleased with that gift, but later on I strolled along the driveway with them on, and I enjoyed it.
One year on my birthday there was something that I received which I did not expect at all, and it was dreadful. I get a note in my mail box saying something was delivered to the drug store by Canada Post. I thought well somebody must have sent me a birthday present. I was eager to find out as I went to the drug store.
When I went to the post office in the back of the store, I had gotten a letter in a big envelope. When I got home, I opened it, and I read it. My heart sank because it was bad news from my insurance saying that they were going to cancel my car insurance due to a non-sufficient payment from the bank. They tried to take it out of my husband's account, but there was not enough money. I was so disappointed. The good was news that we found another insurance company who took us on a month later.
Sometimes we receive good news or bad news from people, and I know that God is in control when I death takes place in the family or a friend is coming to visit.
