Book Excerpts #1

"Aniya, you take a look at this watch for me. What's it doing?"


"Why, it's ticking, Uncle Ralph," Aniya said, looking at him mischievously.


"Exactly! But how is it ticking? Is it just randomly ticking whenever it feels like it?"


"No, it's ticking in a nice, even beat, on every second, just like it's supposed to."


"Do you know what that reminds me of?" Uncle Ralph asked her.


Aniya shook her head.


"This watch of mine reminds me that God is always there for us. No matter what is going on around us, God is that constant ticking of the watch. He's always there for us, no matter what happens. We can always trust him to have the time right, for whatever we need/want. God is always there for us. Sometimes it seems like he's not, especially when there's so much going on around us everywhere, but when we slow down and pay attention to the little things, we realize that He's still there, and He's just as constant as He was last time we checked. He's always there for us. And don't you ever forget that."
