Last year our little granddaughter, Anne Marie, had seen gumball machines in the store, and really wanted one. So we bought one and gave it to her for her Christmas Eve gift. It was great to give it to her and see her surprise and excitement. We had already loaded it with gumballs. I showed her how to turn the knob so one could come out. You can't see it well in the picture, but the gumball goes around and around in a long spiral as it goes down. Fun to watch. And when it came out, she held it in her hand, turned it around, and stared at it in wonder. Then she did this. She gave it to me and said "How do you put it back in?" Without even putting it in her mouth, her joy was complete. When I explained that she didn't have to put it back, but could chew it, and then get another, she was overcome. She had asked for this gift, but she had gotten so much more more than she even hoped for.
"For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him?" Matthew 7:7,11
