There are times when I feel that God is my loving Father ( in other times He can be my Mother, my Friend, my Beloved ). So if I need anything from Him, I only need to ask. Not in a begging sort of way, like “Please God, Please God, Please God give me this”. But I talk to Him like a child who has a right to his property.
So, one fine cold day on the mountain top, I told Him. “You know, I came here so I can be closer to you (This particular mountain is so magical for me that I forget the world when I’m there and I can just focus on myself and my relationship with the Supreme Soul) but I didn’t know it would so cold here, can you please send me a pair a thermal clothes. Add in a pair of socks, too.”
I waited. (Since God is the perfect parent I always feel that He’ll just take care of me.) But no clothes came. He sent the sun instead.
It’s funny how I look at God ordinarily. He is God after all (with a capital G), so it’s just easy for Him to send the sun. Why would he send a pair of pyjamas when He could send the yellow ball from the heavens to give me warmth?
