I would like to share a story with you. In my previous post I had mentioned the book of " Miracles and the Unexplainable". If you read through this book of 101 wonderful stories you may find yourself reminded of a time when something happened likewise to you.
Today want to tell you one of mine. In fact it was just recent.
It begins with November 27th...my 67th birthday.
Kelsey and I were out for our usual walk. The day was brisk - a cold front was blowing in. Feeling a bit blue and missing my mom (she always would call me and sing Happy Birthday). This was the third year since I last heard her voice or had received a special package wrapped from her loving hand. Mom always spent as much time finding the perfect wrapping paper and bows as she did shopping for a lovely gift. She had a way of making a present look so beautiful.
Walking along I asked the Lord if perhaps He would send me a sign from her to let me know all was well. Didn't think about it again and the week moved on.
The following Saturday ran over to the family farm where my brother and sister (in-law) live. Had picked up a Christmas Cactus for my nephew and wanted him to have it. They were seeing him later that evening.
As we visited my sister said "I found something you will want." She had been going through a bookshelf of my parents' books and had happened on one of my Mom's.
It was one of her prayer journals that she had kept. Of course I brought it home and placed it by my bedside table. Later in the evening just before going to sleep - opened it to see what she had wrote.
The date was April 2005...her birthday was April 8th and she was thanking the Lord for all her blessings.
