Christmas Jar Story: 'I just stood there in complete shock'

Petoskey, MI

I just received a "Christmas Jar," at my front door. Funny thing, I saw the woman who brought it to my door! lol - I could tell that she was a little bummed that I "caught" her, but I could also see her beautiful heart, full of love. She wanted to bless my family, and I couldn't call it anything else. A true blessing from the hand of God!

The last couple of years have brought heartache and struggle. One of my little boys went to be with Jesus a little over two years ago, and my husband has been in jail for the last 7 months. I was left with four boys and no job. It seems as though life has been one struggle after another, BUT...... God has provided for us, over and over again! Every time a bill is due, or we need food on the table, God has taken care of every detail.

I had never heard of the "Christmas Jar," and when I opened the gift bag that was holding my "Christmas Jar," I just stood there in complete shock. I was expecting little treasures collected throughout the year, that had special religious meaning behind each one. That would have been really neat to see what each one represented, but I sure got a whole lot more than what I was expecting!

God truly blessed my family.

God is good!!

He reigns!

I pray that the Lord will bless this precious woman and her family beyond anything that they could imagine.
