Eyes of the Father: Knock, and the door will open

Eyes of the Father: God doesn’t need our help, but seeks it anyway

I had to plant some trees in the yard. Before going out to do it, I asked Cole if he'd like to help me. He jumped up, his eyes sparkling with excitement. He was more than happy to "assist."
