Last summer Josh got a passport in preparations for a job he was going on out of the country. In February the employer needed info off of it for paperwork and yada yada.. but the thing was lost. We got him a new one quick at great expense to us and after all that he ended up not talking the job overseas. Still its is a good thing he has one, he may be going to Mexico with the company his currently with sometime in the future. But that is not the point. Looking for the passport and getting a new one was a big ordeal. We thought we left no stone unturned. We turned the house upside down, the cars, even bribed the kids. Josh had insisted it was somehow MY FAULT that it was lost and that it must have been thrown out during cleaning or decluttering. I felt major guilt over it because I had no clue what happen to it.
Josh went out of town last night and I guess this morning he was unpacking. He called and said he found it. It was in his BIBLE, yes his BIBLE of all places! I am just beside myself and in awe. Certainly God is trying to tell you something dear. READ your Bible more often!! If that doesn't get his attention I don't know what will.
The thing is I KNOW I looked threw every book and Bible we own when we were looking. And I kept thinking at the time his passport was somewhere in is car or luggage (where he keeps his Bible btw). I know we looked threw his car and luggage dozens of times and that would have included his Bible. Maybe somehow we were blinded so that we would not find it, for what ever reason. I even think I brought his Bible with us to Chicago when we went to get the new passport but I didn't read it in the car or at the Hotel because Josh hates it when I read while we are driving and wants me to entertain him. There are many lessons here.. and I get it.. I only hope he does too.
