Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

When you lose something, what steps do you take to find it?  It depends, doesn't it, on the value of what is lost?

"Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one.  Doesn't she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until set hinds it?  And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.'"
                                                  --Luke 15:8,9 TNIV
This is God!  To lose something, every effort is made to find it, and to celebrate when found.  This is God' love for something lost, not something, but someone.
What do we learn about God here?  The coin doesn't even know it's lost, but that doesn't stop the woman...that doesn't stop God.
