For the past several months we have been earnestly praying that Chris would be able to find a job where he would get a stable income and help us out of our current financial situation. Although he has had many interviews with various companies he has not been offered anything...but still we pray for help.
This morning we received an answer to our prayers. A gift was left on our doorstep by an anonymous person. I have no idea who left this gift. For all I know it could be someone who is reading this right now. To that person we thank you from the bottom of hearts. You will never no how much the gift is appreciated. I don't know why this person felt prompted to do this, but in our eyes you have become our family's Christmas Angel. Chris asked me how we can ever thank this person, since we don't know who it is and I told him that someday, when we are able, we will show our thanks and gratitude by doing this for a family in need. I guess that is the best that we can do. I am so thankful for a Heavenly Father that is ALWAYS mindful of our needs. While I hate that we are in the situation that we are in, I am humbled by this experience and look forward to the day that I can make a difference to someone else like this person has done for us. The chorus of a song (it is playing right now) has played in my mind over and over today and I feel like it fits my thoughts so well...
I believe there are angels among us,
sent down to us, from somewhere up above.
They come to you....and me....in our darkest hours,
To show us how to live, to teach us how to give.
To guide us with a light of love.
I am also reminded of a talk that was given this past conference by Jeffery R. Holland in which he states...
"May we all believe more readily in, and have more gratitude for, the Lord’s promise as contained in one of President Monson’s favorite scriptures: “I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, . . . my Spirit shall be in your [heart], and mine angels round about you, to bear you up.” In the process of praying for those angels to attend us, may we all try to be a little more angelic ourselves—with a kind word, a strong arm, a declaration of faith and “the covenant wherewith [we] have covenanted.”
So to my angel....wherever you are....I can only say one thing. Thank You.
