His full name is Nikone Unknown. Unknown is 40-years-old and he owns a restaurant in Ocean Springs. Unknown acquired that name when he immigrated to the United States from Laos in 1979. Unknown feared revealing his real name to immigration officials, who simply listed his last name as "unknown." Unknown's wife is Ratchanee Unknown, and his son is Nick Unknown.

But God knows each and everyone one of us. God knows our heart and mind. God knows our needs. God even knows the number of hairs on our head. I realize some of us may have more hair than others, but that is how well God knows us.
And even the hairs of your head are all counted.
Dear Lord, thank you for knowing our needs. Please show us the way to fulfulling those needs. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
