Tis the day after Christmas and I sit here
with mixed emotions. I write articles about
having faith and a positive attitude. But
usually by November our household money
becomes very short, and there are still
family presents to be bought and bills to be
paid, and I realize, once again, that our
finances are in dire straits. This is the way
it has been since the beginning of the new
Fortunately, several years ago, I prayed
to my Heavenly Father for help (actually,
I begged him for financial help,) and I
received it from one of our family's relatives.
This relative, to my knowledge, was never
told about our financial condition, but she
simply was prompted to send us a check
and has done so, every Christmas since.
So, my family has been blessed through
the years way beyond measure and by the
grace of God (not because we deserved it,
but simply because God was gracious and
showered his favor upon us).
So, I sit and type, and think of the millions
of families that are not blessed the way we
have been, and it saddens me greatly to
realize this is so. I wish and pray to God
that all families were blessed financially as
we have been, yea, even ten times as much.
I wish that all families were finacially well
off and pray that this would be so. Soon.
