The head mover came this morning with my living room clock and a big blue
extension cord which I had not found in the storage units. I was surprised and
happy. NOW I SEE WHAT GOD HAS BEEN WORKING ON!! This man came and said that he
and his fellow movers and the boss had been very inspired and moved by my
family, our circumstances, and our faith in God when our way seemed totally
impossible. (They were called in in our frantic situation and we had less than
24 hours to move out by the time contact with them was made. They slept and came
the next a.m. and had us out in 11 hours!! Another of God's miracles!! They said
it would be a full two day's job when they came in!)
I continually told them that they were angels and God had sent them. Well, they were so inspired that they have all felt blessed. He stayed for quite a while and shared with me about his step-grandmother having a stroke this past weekend and he "prayed" for her. He said he thought about us and OUR GREAT FAITH for God to see us through our ordeal. He grabbed me on the arm and said, "You know, it worked. The doctors said she was going to die right away when we took her in. She is alive and is better and is going to go home tomorrow! Prayer really works!"
He also expressed care and concern for us from the other movers and his boss and said that he himself had been gone for 2 weeks out of state on moves and when he came back my clock was on the wall in their office because the other guys had decided, "We want to think of them with every movement of the clock!" The boss did not know it was my clock and when this guy got back he was shocked to see it on the wall and said, That's hers. We have to give it back to her as they will need it." Then the boss made them wrap it up and sent it with this guy today. He is going to ask whether they will do anything to my refrig. They had to take it all apart and there must be a pinched wire in it as it pops, blue lights and flips the breaker in this house now and it was working before they took it.
I already called my daughter and son at work and told them about this guy today and that WE HAD MADE A DIFFERENCE IN 5 LIVES ALREADY and maybe more, and we don't even know it. We don't want any attention or praise for ourselves. It is all of and about GOD and His SAVING POWER AND DIRECTIONS FOR OUR LIVES that have made the impression on these guys' lives and "your tremendous faith" as this guy put it!!
All we can say here is, "PRAISE THE LORD, PRAISE THE LORD, THANK YOU, JESUS. PRAISE THE LORD!! THANK YOU HEAVENLY FATHER FOR ALLOWING US TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION IN OTHERS' LIVES FOR YOUR GLORY. WE GIVE YOU A-L-L THE GLORY!!! AMEN!"
In Christ's Love,
