The Miracle of the Toys

I am pondering...the miracle of the toys.
Ma'gen Da'vid Synagogue had purchased Christmas toys this week for a family with three children.   Their mom and dad recently lost their jobs and couldn't afford much this Christmas.
Friday night at the Shabbat service a stranger came in and asked if there were any children we knew of who needed toys for Christmas.  Rabbi Jem said, "We sure do!"
The man was the manager of Walgreens. They had collected toys for children and deliveries had already been made, when someone dropped off another big bag of toys. He drove by our building, saw the cars, and just decided to ask if we knew of a need. 
What a blessing the children received.  It reminded me of the miracle of the holy oil for the first Hanukkah menorah, and also of the miracle of the loaves and fishes blessed by Yeshua.  G-d multiplied what we had, and those little children received huge bags full of toys on Christmas morning.
I am continually amazed by The Father's ability to do above what we can ask or think, and of His miracle-working power at work today.
Blessings to you all, dear readers, and I pray you have joy this Christmas.

  2. Blessing, Gail! Toys are a miracle of wonder in a child's life and I love how you related the multiplication of these toys to the temple oil. Parables! Stories! Coming as a little child . . .
    May you know God's richest blessings this year, too!
    Joy!
