A GOD GIFT TO ME...AND BLESSING OTHERS

DURING MARCH, 2012, IT WAS A REAL GOD-GIFT TO BE ABLE TO DRIVE MY BHUTANESE FRIENDS FROM OMAHA TO ST. LOUIS SO SEVERAL OF THEM COULD VISIT THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO HAD BEEN THERE SINCE THEIR ARRIVAL FROM NEPAL.  IT HAD BEEN QUITE A WHILE SINCE THEY HAD SEEN EACH OTHER. 
THEY LAUGHED, THEY CRIED.  
THEY ALL GREATLY APPRECIATED THE FACT THAT I WAS ABLE TO CONNECT THEM, GIVE THEM A DAY TO VISIT, 
AND TAKE THE OMAHA FAMILY HOME.

FOR THEM IT WAS A GOD-GIFT.  FOR ME IT WAS A HUGE GOD-GIFT, BECAUSE MY WORLD HAD CHANGED OVER AND OVER AGAIN SINCE I HAD BEEN A TOUGH COOKIE AS A KID AND A YOUNG PERSON.   EVEN AFTER HE BROKE INTO MY LIFE IT TOOK SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE I WAS ABLE TO FOCUS ON HIM REGULARLY.

NOW HE HAS BLESSED ME BIG TIME AND HAS LET ME BE A BLESSING.  THAT IS A BLESSING, TOO. 
 I'M A VERY GRATEFUL AND APPRECIATIVE LADY.

I am certain they appreciated your travel gift of love. I can see Jesus on (some of) their faces. Thank you for sharing your lovely post with us here at “Tell Me a Story.” http://letmetelluastory.blogspot.com/
