“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” — James 1:5 (NIV)

I have been sleeping at night with a CPAP machine due to having sleep apnea for a few years now. The machine requires attention regularly to keep it clean and one of those things is keeping the filter replaced. I recently received new filters and thought that I put them in a place that I would just walk to when I needed one and they would be there. But it didn’t happen exactly the way I planned. You know the old saying that as you grow older you tend to misplace things. Well, I started that habit way before getting older. But anyway, I thought I put them in the bathroom cabinet with the other CPAP supplies. I took everything out of that cabinet three times and that was a job, but I was determined they were there. After the third time, I finally decided that they just permanently disappeared in this house, and I was not going to get down there and empty that cabinet out a fourth time. Fortunately, I had one left that would last a couple more days so I ordered a package from our old favorite Amazon, which should be here soon. I just can’t believe that something like that can just disappear. I bet you they will turn up one day in the oddest place that you could imagine with me wondering why in the world did I put them there, oh well.
