Joshua 24:15 Nearly 35 years

Joshua 24:15 Nearly 35 years ago now I was reading my Bible when I came across this verse. I thought to myself what a lovely scripture. I began wondering if the local Christian bookstore might have a piece of stain glass w/this verse, and decided I would make plans to go there. Several days had passed and I still hadn’t visited. During those several days, I had many errands, one of which was visiting my Brother in Christ and his family who were moving out of state. When I arrived at his home, moving boxes were everywhere. His wife and baby son were down the hall packing in one of the bedrooms. I was chatting w/my friend in the living-room as he was sorting things in boxes. Suddenly he stopped, looking a little quizzical, w/his hands in one of the boxes. He looked up at me and slightly shook his head saying, “Stephen I think the Lord wants you to have this.” He then pulled out of the box a wooden plaque that a missionary friend had given to him sometime ago. On the plaque were the very words of Joshua 24:15 “As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” When he did this I instantly thought of Psalms 139 and read it w/tears of joy running down my face. God moves in mysterious ways His wonders to perform. Don’t know how much of this your able to print but God certainly knows what we’re thinking and sometimes answers w/out asking Him. I’m sure glad He did that day! :)))
