I used to remember when I was a little boy waiting for Santa’s presents under our Christmas tree every Christmas Eve and it makes me very happy that he never stops sending me his Christmas present. And I remembered that I was already 12 years old when my mother had revealed to me that Santa Claus is not true and that all the gifts I have received during Christmas came from them. I admit that at first I was very upset to learn that Santa is just an imagination, but on the other hand, I salute my parents for making my childhood very surprising and enjoyable. And for me, the spirit of Santa Claus will always live in every heart of a child during the Christmas season.
But now that I am no longer a child, I no longer expect Santa’s gift on Christmas Day, yet every time I receive gifts on Christmas Day, I can’t help but remember the memories of Santa Claus and my childhood years. I recently received a wonderful blessing from God and it really made me very happy that I finally got something that I have prayed for since I was a mother. Praise the Lord! It has been 14 years since I prayed and wanted this and now I can’t imagine that I will start doing it.
Wow! It’s official; I am now a full time registered online worker who only works from home. Thank you Lord for this early Christmas gift you have given me. And it really made me feel very happy, blessed and overwhelmed for that I declare that it is one of the best things that happened to me after giving birth to my beautiful daughter. My dream has finally come true! I will earn money while taking care of my children and spending quality time with them.
I admit that at first it was very difficult for me because I don’t have a house helper to assign for our housework and taking care of my children. But thank God that later I was able to adjust and properly manage my time for each task and responsibilities that went to my work and my family. You may be wondering why I consider this event an early Christmas gift.
It is because a few months ago when I was still working in a large company as a consultant, I keep praying to God and asking for some signs if he allows me to quit my job because I am no longer happy with my job and I wanted to take care of my children. But a few months had passed and I was disappointed because it seems that God never heard my prayer but I never lose hope, instead I keep praying.
As Christmas is fast approaching again, I have decided to wish Santa Claus to let me feel the spirit of Christmas again and I keep praying that God will grant me the prayer. And just a few days later, a miracle happened because I received an email from my prospective employer telling me that they had hired me as their new virtual consultant assistant. After reading that email, I couldn’t notice that tears were already falling from my eyes and when I’m about to look up my first day of work in Calendar. It shows that it is already September, the month when I usually start to decorate my house with my beautiful and colorful decorations and Christmas lights.
That made me realize that prayer is very powerful and very grateful for the greatness of God.
