"The Lost"

Time Capsule

I have been cleaning out cupboards and shelves in the study. I came across a stack of Time Magazines that I have saved over the years. I intended to save the one for the week of Kayís birthday. I also kept some significant others. A few of them have drifted away somewhere but when I looked at them I was astonished at the events that occurred during her first 21 years. Here is a peek at the Time Capsule:

Doesnít it sound as though this 21 year period is very similar to what we have now and probably have had every 21 year period in the past? Matthew 6:25-34 says in brief, donít worry! Your Heavenly Father knows what you need. Isnít it comforting to know that we donít need to worry?
