I used to remember when I was a little child that I have waited for Santa’s gifts underneath our Christmas tree every Christmas Eve and it makes me very happy because he never misses to send me his Christmas gift. 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’ve received during Christmas were coming from them. I admit that at first I really felt very upset to know that Santa is just an imagination but on the other hand I salute my parents for making my childhood life very surprising and enjoyable. And for me the spirit of Santa Claus will always lived-on in every heart of a child during Christmas season.
But now that I am no longer a child anymore, I don’t expect for Santa’s gift on Christmas day anymore nevertheless every time I receive gifts on Christmas day, I can’t stop myself from reminiscing Santa Claus memories and my childhood years. Just recently I have received a wonderful Blessing from God and it really made me very happy that finally I’ve got something I’ve prayed since I’ve become a mother. Praise God! It’s been 14 years since I’ve prayed and wanting this thing and now I can’t imagine that I will be starting to do it.
Wow! It’s official; I am now a registered full-time online worker who’s working at home only. Thank you Lord, for this early Christmas gift you have given me. And it really made me feel very happy, blessed and overwhelmed so I declare that it’s one of the best things that happened to me after giving birth to my beautiful daughter. My Dream has finally do come true! I will be earning money while I am taking care of my kids and spending quality time with them.
I admit that at first I find it very difficult because I don’t have a house helper to assign for our house chores and taking care of my kids. But thank God that later I was able to adjust and manage my time properly for each task and responsibilities that intended for my work and family. Maybe you’re wondering why I consider this event an early Christmas gift.
It is because few months ago when I was still working in a big company as a consultant, I keep on praying to God and asking for some signs if I he will allow me resign from work because I am no longer happy with my job and I wanted to take charge in taking care of my kids. But few months had passed by I got disappointed because it seems that God had never heard my prayer but I never lose hope, instead I keep on praying.
Since Christmas is fast approaching again so I’ve decided to make a wish to Santa Claus that he will allow me to feel the spirit of Christmas again and I keep on praying that God will grant me prayer. And just few days later, a miracle happened because I’ve received an email from my prospect employer telling me that she has hired me as her new virtual assistant consultant. After reading that email, I wasn’t able to notice that tears were already falling from eyes and when I am about to look for my first day of work on the Calendar. It shows that it’s already September, the month where I usually start decorating my house with my beautiful and colorful Christmas decorations and lights.
So that made me realize that prayer is very powerful and very thankful for God’s greatness.
