283 -He is Wonderful!
December 8, 1987
We just received $500 from &&& in the mail! It came with two specifications:
*don’t tell anyone [30 years later I will still honor their request]
*it’s for Christmas only—so the boys will have lots of gifts under the tree
*it’s for food and your needs.
PRAISE THE LORD!
My first thoughts were for things that money can’t buy:
*I want a loving heart and control over my tongue
*the boys to be more manageable
*for Bema to be well
*for my dad to be well
*time to crochet all kinds of towels for Christmas gifts
I am remembering that Ben Dodzweit said, if you need money, GIVE. And we have. And it came back many-fold.
I got up really early. I had prayed for God to let me. I prayed and walked. And I was at the Laundromat by 6:45! You are wonderful! WONDERFUL!!
Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust….Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done; and Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order; if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
