Gifts from our Fathers

"If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him?" Matt 7:11

This verse made me start thinking about all the good gifts my parents have given me:

-a loving family
-vacations to Wyoming, California, East coast for Civil War and American history lessons, Florida, Texas, Thailand, Colorado, Georgia
-my trip to Cameroon, Africa
-money for nursing school
-a desktop computer
-a laptop
-moved to Cedar Falls for a better school system
-homeschooled us while working part time
-a car (the Honda and stratus and concord)
-allowing us to take part in Easter Productions
-new clothes for school
-a meal every night
-a roof over our heads
-purity rings
-Lucy's guitar
-Katie's bike that led to tears:)
-Letting us keep Willy, Coco, Mavis
-Teaching us to be entrepreneurs with the dog business:)
-dollhouses, barbies, American girl dolls, books, movies, music, cd players, games, etc etc... the list could go on and on... and most of that is all materialistic gifts...
-they gave us love, joy, peace, friendships, godly examples, confidence, sense of adventure and accomplishment, faith, discipline, support, loyalty, belief in our abilities, etc, etc...

How much more will our Father in Heaven give good things to those who ask him?
