This is a wonderful true, faith-building story by author Leslie Leyland Fields. I so relate to her story, especially this part:
‘My own father had no interest in my children or in me, but somehow a father who is spinning 13 trillion galaxies in the infinitude of space, who knows the hearts of 8 billion others hears the unspoken longing of a mother and sends just the right backpack to the Salvation Army in Kodiak just before I turn one last time to the store. How can this God bend so low and come so near?’

We’re thinking about gifts this month so I have to tell this story. I’ve never written it before. Yes, it’s a bit of a miracle story.The Gift that Saved My Life — Blog – Leslie Leyland Fields
