An idea to make next year’s turkey dance!

We just heard of the most amazing idea for a Thanksgiving celebration….rather, we have just been the recipients of the most amazing idea for celebrating Thanksgiving.

Here is the letter that was attached to the gift:

Dear Family, We wanted you all to have some money for Christmas. This money is for you to spend on someone else…either in your family or someone else who has a need. We are blessed by giving to you; you will be blessed by giving to someone else; and God is blessed when we give from hearts of thanksgiving to Him! Merry Thanksgiving!

“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever AMEN!!”

 Pretty stinking cool, huh?  The family that blessed us with the money is in the same place we are – they are stepping out in faith to do all that Father has asked of them, with no obvious means of provision.  (Know anyone else like that??)     🙂  And you know what?  They were absolutely GIDDY at being able to share the blessing with us.  And we will share the blessing with someone else, as well.  That means one anonymous donor will have blessed at least three families by the time it’s all said and done.  🙂

I have yet to cease being amazed by all that the Lord does in our lives during this season.  It truly is more than I can think or imagine.  Blessed be the Name of the Lord for He is worthy of all praise.  His thoughts are above our thoughts and His ways above our own.  We are His children, the sheep of His pasture and the Shepherd is attentive and wise and gentle and protective of His flock.  Great is the Lord!

PS If the Lord has providentially brought you here, because you seek to be encouraged that the Lord is faithful and will care for His children, please don’t hesitate to write me at javamama seven at g mail dot com.  (Using the proper “format” and turning the word into the number)  I would be honored to encourage you and minister to you, for the Lord  has shown Himself faithful in our lives over the last year in HUGE ways…and silly me, I thought we’d already seen that occur.  I was so wrong.
