Dads Blessings
 
A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For manymonths he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom,and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all hewanted.As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that hisfather had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of hisgraduation, his father called him into his private study. His father toldhim how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how muchhe loved him. He handed his son a beautifully wrapped gift box.Curious, but somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the boxand found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with the young man's nameembossed in gold. Angry, he raised his voice to his father and said"With all your money, you give me a Bible?" and stormed out of thehouse, leaving the Bible.Many years passed and the young man was very successful inbusiness. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realizedhis father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. Hehad not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could makearrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father hadpassed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed tocome home immediately and take care of things.When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and regret filledhis heart. He began to search through his father's important papersand saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears,he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. And as he did, a carkey dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer'sname, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On thetag was the date of his graduation, and the words PAID IN FULL.How many times do we miss Spirit's blessings and answers to ourprayers because they do not arrive exactly as we have expected?
