One of my sons who moved to California in September finally landed a job today after a four-month drought. This is a tremendous blessing, and I can’t even tell you how relieved we are.
He called it a Christmas miracle. I just think it was God’s timing, God’s way, because it turns out it’s the most perfect job he could have landed. Sometimes it’s very hard to wait on God’s best, but it always comes at exactly the time it was most needed. These four months have strengthened my son’s faith rather than cause him to give up in discouragement. And that’s an answer to prayer as well.
I’ll tell you something else that’s a Christmas miracle. Hearing the conversations all over the house with all my family home. Hearing the kids laughing. Right now they’re outdoors–it’s very warm here–playing hide and seek. Every now and then I see a flashlight beam. They’re having a blast. Enjoying the wonderful meal that Ken put on tonight with a little help from Mike and Janan. Looking forward to more fellowship tomorrow, and to the Christmas Eve service; then Christmas day itself. Hard to realize it will all be over in just three more days. I will treasure every moment.
God is good, all the time.
