Lost and found

I found the gift for myself for my 35th birthday. Its not some costly jewelry for I know I couldnt afford one, and it was not a time for myself to go somewhere for I would want to spend it with someone, I did that last year, though it was also fun it would have been more exciting if I shared it with someone. And that gift for myself is this cute lamb stuffed toy. Why?
I felt it. The moment we gazed at each others eyes, I picked him up and we were inseparable. He reminded me so much of myself. Helpless, vulnerable and needed a saviour. I named him lost and found, just like the lost sheep I also was lost and now Im found. I am helpless, and Im just glad he found me. Just like the story in the bible how the shepherd left his flock just to find the one missing sheep, and when He found the lost sheep he joyfully puts on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls friends and neighbors to rejoice with Him for he has found his lost sheep. "tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent’” (Luke 15:3-7). I imagined how the angels in heaven rejoiced when I accepted Jesus Christ as my saviour and Lord last may 10, 2001.

Now, i have lost and found, he has a new home and is one of my favorite sleeping buddy, always beside me when I sleep at night.
