There is a story told of three little girls who are

enjoying an evening of play. They started playing the

game of counting their money; the object was to see who

had the most and the winner would be crowned queen for

the day. The first little girl counted thirteen

pennies, the second counted fourteen pennies. The last

little girl began to count, she had only fourteen

pennies like the second, however she counted fifteen. The other two girls argued with her over the count and they counted again, there were only fourteen, but the last girl insisted on having fifteen. Finally, they asked, "How can you say fifteen when you only have fourteen", she replied, "My father promised me another penny when he comes home from work today". And whatever my father promises me, it’s mine at the moment of the promise. That is the assurance we have, what ever the Father has promised, He will provide, whatever He says, it is a word that you can count on.
