Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Today I wanted to share a miracle my family experienced in 2020 that turned out to be one of the best gifts we could’ve been given that year.
A year ago on Christmas Eve, my mom got a call later in the day from an unknown number. The woman on the phone said she was some kind of social worker or government employee and asked if we were planning to take my grandma out of the nursing home for Christmas. We had assumed this wasn’t an option with all the COVID restrictions, but the woman urged my mom to call the facility my grandma lived in and request to take her out for a few hours. Doesn’t hurt to ask, right? Seemingly against all odds, we were given the go-ahead to pick up my grandma for Christmas Eve dinner. It was the first time she had been allowed to leave in months, and she laughed all night long. It was a Christmas to remember.
Days later, my grandma had a stroke that she ultimately never recovered from. She died in September, so 2020 turned out to be our last Christmas with her.
I’m not sure who called my mom last year on Christmas Eve, but I don’t think it was a social worker. I think it was an angel. We’d never heard from that individual before and never have since.
God knew it would be our last Christmas with my grandma and allowed us to be together one more time, despite all the lockdown regulations. I’m so thankful he did!
Nothing and no one can convince me God doesn’t still work miracles. Sometimes it’s just a matter of recognizing them. I’m learning that there’s always more heavenly activity going on than we realize.
If you’re waiting for a miracle of your own, keep believing! This could be your year. ❤️
For nothing will be impossible with God.Luke 1:37 ESV
