Joy at finding

Ed Boggess is minister with the Winchester TN church. He does a daily one-minute radio spot called “Just a Minute.” He posted this today on the church-of-Christ list at Yahoo. (I’ve invited him to do this here.)

Sometimes the best laid plans go awry. James Ng of Burton, Ohio planned to propose marriage during a hot-air balloon ride. Just as he was prepared to pop the question, the camera case which contained the 1-carat diamond slipped from his hands and fell overboard. James noted that they had just passed a river and determined to search for it. Sonya figured out what was going on, said “yes” and wore a twist tie on her finger. After seven days of thrashing through brush and brambles, James found the camera case and the diamond ring. Just as in the parable of the lost coin, there was plenty of rejoicing. That which was lost had been found. Likewise there is rejoicing in heaven over the finding of one lost soul. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
