Our Christmas Miracle...

On Christmas Eve our family had a miracle take place! I still don't even know how to talk about it. We are all still in awe and speechless.

We were home, and someone rang our doorbell... a man I don't know. He handed me an envelope and said it was from someone who cared about us. He left, and I came inside. Gil and I opened it, and found inside ten $50 bills! I just broke down and cried. We were so thankful and overwhelmed. We have no idea where it could have come from, or who could have known how much it was needed.

The past few years have been hard... the last few months, sometimes even harder. We feel like things are getting better, we just have to get through the next few months. This unexpected gift was a ray of light and hope, a hug from the Lord, and just what our aching souls needed. We gathered our family and praised Him together, asking that those who provided would be blessed a thousand-fold. It was so amazing how the Lord showed His great love for us. We are grateful, thankful, and so very blessed.

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!
