The Good One

The Tool Ark

Like a Workshop Noah, if my Dad had anything; he had at least two of them. From several wrench sets to two arc welders, he had the the good one and the other one.

Sometimes, he just wanted one tool for the basement workshop and another for the garage, (and maybe one for the car). Other times there was a good deal on a tool and he bought them all. Or one tool was not quite perfect, but not quite worn out, so he bought another but kept the old for sacrificial projects.

My brothers and I learned early that not only could we borrow tools, but when borrowing, to always ask for "the good one". Usually, we didn't know what the good one was but Dad knew, and that is the one he gave us.

If someone tells you that God gave them them something bad, from an earthquakes to blunt screwdriver, remember my Dad, for like all good parents, God always gives "the good one".

Hope you always give your best to God and God's children.

Giving Good Gifts

"Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!" - Matthew 7:7-11
