As I trotted out to my mailbox (and I can say MY mailbox!), I came back with three letters. One from a mortgage insurance company…TRASH! Another from a friend who was precious enough to send us a Thanksgiving card (thanks Kristen, we LOVED it!). And yet another, with no return address but a thick wad of cash inside and a little card inside that said, “RJ and Alice M., The Navigators” and the other side, “Ecclesiastes, the whole book.” My first thought was, WHaaaaaaA?? My second one was, “How did someone not pocket this along the way??”
One of the things I LOVE about being in full-time Christian work is witnessing all the unique ways God provides for us through others, whether it’d be forcing me to save money myself so I have enough to pay for hospital bills, financial grants for school, or random acts of kindness through unmarked envelopes in the mail.
I wish we knew who our secret admirer is, but as they gave us no hints (though we know they’re from Eugene!), I hope they’ll read this and know that RJ and I are SO thankful for your generosity! SO SO thankful!
