The night before Thanksgiving, my son and I prayed together. Suddenly, the question came to me: “What is the meaning of Thanksgiving?” It was God who inspired me to think of such a thing.

Well, before I was able to come up with an answer, He said that it was to “Thank God for His Giving.”

What enlightenment!

We prayed again on the day of Thanksgiving. His words came back to me again: “Thanksgiving does not end today. Every day of your life, I will continue to give you things that you should thank Me for.”

To my joy, the gifts from God began to pour in.

We went to a shopping mall to pick up a gift card. We saw a line to exchange three receipts for gift cards. Apparently, if you could show that you spent a hundred dollars, you would get a ten dollar gift card, with appropriate increments if you had spent more money than that. I had made a $250 purchase; I figured if I made two more purchases (bringing the total up to $300) then I could get a $50 gift card. So my son and I took our time and bought dinner; afterwards we went shopping at See’s Candies.

Unfortunately, when we came back, the line for the gift card exchange had closed. The security guard informed us that they had run out of gift cards. I was hoping to be gifted a miracle, so I walked around their counter and chatted with the lady there. I told her that I missed the chance to take advantage of their deal, and she expressed her sympathy.

Little did I know that she was the manager in charge of the gift card distribution. She walked up to me only a few minutes after our chat and politely told me that she could help me. She reopened the line just for me and gave me my gift card.

After we got home, I immediately started looking for Xmas cards to match the gift cards we had just bought. I was shocked to see that one of the Xmas cards was in the shape of a gift box, with the inscription:

Thanks be to God for His indescribable Gift! 2 Corinthians 9:15

What a way to confirm what He had told me a couple of days ago! And He had already taken action by moving the mall manager to give me the gift card!

The very next day, my son called me excitedly to tell me that my granddaughter finally received a much-needed offer from the school district. They have agreed to give her one on one tutoring, free of charge. Normally, this special long term education program would cost up to a million dollars. Wow, what a gift!

Ever since then, the gifts have been pouring down. Each time, I thank God for lifting me up at the low point of my life. I am now full of confidence that, regardless of any huge setbacks, I will be able to make my life better than ever!

難以形容的禮物

感恩節前夕,我和兒子一起祈禱。 突然,一個聲問我一個問題:“感恩節的意義是什麼?”

嗯,在我想出答案之前,祂說那是「感謝上帝的給予」。

何等的開啟啊!

感恩節那天,我們禱告時。 祂的話又在耳邊:“感恩節不會在今天結束。在你生命中的每一天,我都會繼續給你一些你應該感謝我的東西。”

令我高興的是,上帝的禮物開始源源不絕地湧出。

我們去購物中心買禮品卡。 我們看到有人排隊要用三張收據換禮品卡。 顯然,如果你能證明你花了100美元,你會得到一張10美元的禮品卡,如果你花更多的錢,你會得到較高額的禮品卡。 我發覺如果我再多花50元,(總金額達到300美元),我就能得到一張50美元的禮品卡。 所以我和兒子不慌不忙地花錢吃晚餐;然後去Sees糖果店購物,補足300元。

不巧的是,當我們回來時,兌換禮品卡的隊伍已經關閉了。 保全告訴我們,他們的禮品卡用完了。 我希望能有一個奇蹟,所以我繞著他們的櫃檯走了一圈,和那裡的一位女士聊天。 我告訴她,我錯過了用收據換禮品卡的機會,她表示可惜。

我們聊了幾分鐘後,我走到另一辺等著奇蹟,忽然她走到我面前,禮貌地告訴我,她可以幫我。 她親自把我帶到櫃台前,工作人員給了我禮品卡。 看到這位女士正要離開趕忙上前道謝,才知道她是購物中心經理。

我們回到家後,我立刻開始尋找聖誕卡,來搭配我們剛買的禮品卡。 我吃驚地看到其中一張聖誕卡是禮物盒的形狀,上面寫著:

Xmas gift box

感謝上帝給了我們難以形容的禮物!哥林多後書9:15

這證實他幾天前告訴我的話! 而且祂已經採取了行動,讓商場經理給了我禮品卡!

就在隔天,兒子興奮地打電話給我,告訴我孫女終於收到了學區的贊助通知。 他們同意免費給她一對一的輔導。 通常,這種特殊的長期教育計畫將花費高達一百萬美元。 哇,多好的禮物啊!

從那以後,禮物就源源不絕地湧來。 每次,我都感謝上帝在我生命的低潮時扶持我。 我現在充滿信心,無論遇到什麼巨大的挫折,我一定能讓我的生活比以往任何時候都更好!
