    Love your post.  This is one of my favorite stories from the Old Testament!  How wonderful to see it here.  You never know where God is taking you…or his purpose in events that happen in our lives!  You are a good writer, and your Blog is one of my favorite places to visit.  Merry Christmas and may God’s blessings smile upon you and your family in the coming year.
