My Christmas Wish is for Slippahs for the children of Mayor Wrights Housing where I live. Everything was going as planned and then one after another things started to happened. The person who was helping me, her brother passed away and she was unable to help me get the needed information on schedule. I hurriedly had to complete the task at hand and findly found someone to help me again. Still, the time was over taking us.
To make matters worse, I was stricken with pneumonia! Ahhh, all was not lost. Marlene whose brother died came back with her sister and took over again. All the information was completed.
Alas, it was too late.
When I contacted the person who was going to contact her Media friends for funds to help with the making my Christmas Wish come true ~ she didn't know whether her friends would be able to donate at this time.
I told her not to worry. I would pray on it. The God I know and Love will see this through. Within 1/2 hour later she sends me another email telling me that there may be hope afterall.
She went to a meeting later last night and collected $140.00. The others would like an account set up to send checks to. I don't think that would be necessary for it is not like a MDA or an Cancer Marathon. It's only for 500 pairs of Slippahs!
I have a policy on my Blog not to ask for any money or any donations. I broke my own rule yesterday. I asked my readers for help and recieved several responses. I am in awe of the love and power of GOD. He listen. He cares. He makes wishes comes true.
I had depended on the person and her friends to make my wish come true. I didn't have to. All I needed at the start was God.
Yes, it is cutting it close. Thusday is the Christmas Party for the children at MWH. I still don't even know how much more will be needed to cover the costs. I know one thing...it will be covered.
I have FAITH!
Merry Christmas to one and all!
