Mysterious Mail

As I pulled into my driveway the other day, I stopped to check the mail and found a mysterious envelope with no return address, and the address on the front of the envelope was stamped on it.

 "Hmmm...that's unusual," I thought. "I wonder who this could be from"

When I opened the envelope, there was $100 in loose bills with a short note (which also was typed). The note read, "For the adoption."

My eyes started to tear up as I stood there in my driveway. What a beautiful gift someone sent! The generous individual also took the time to ensure that he/she would remain anonymous.

"...when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly." Matthew 6:3-4

Lord, I thank you for your provision for our adoption and for the individual(s) that were an instrument of Your provision. I ask for You to please bless the individual(s) that took the time to send this special gift of love to our family. I pray that you will reward them for their obedience and their generosity, and that You would bless them abundantly. I pray this, humbly, in Christ's name. Amen.

Thank you, whoever you are, my mysterious mailer, and thank you to each and everyone who has contributed to our adoption fund. Thank you for your donation, and thank you for your reminder that God is in control of everything. Even though I haven't gotten to setting up the next fundraiser, God is still working on providing for our adoption through compassionate and generous followers of Christ like you! God bless you!
