My husband and I have seen many miracles throughout the years. Looking back now, I wish we had written them all down. The most recent one was so fun that I decided to write this blog about it. It's always amazing when God suprises us with the unexpected and this time wasn't the first time for this sort of miracle.
The First Time:
I think it was the year 2004 when we drove 40 min. to an outdoor amphitheater to watch a play on the life of Jesus. When we arrived, we parked in a non-descript field along with all of the other cars. When everything was over, we got back into our car and headed home. As we were exiting the car, I realized my tiny pink beaded wallet was missing. It was completely dark now, but we got out of the car and searched everywhere. (This was my husband's car so it was kept imaculately) There was no wallet. So I insisted that we drive back, hoping that someone from the amphitheater would still be there and that someone would have turned in my wallet. We drove all the way back in the dark praying all the way. When we approached the entry it was clear that everyone was gone. The building was dark and there weren't any outdoor lights on. We noticed that the gate to the property was open, so we drove in and over to where we guessed we might have parked. -just hoping it might have fallen out of the car and onto the field. So we park, both of us get out of the car with the headlights on and start walking around looking down to no avail. As we are doing this a car from the right side of the field is heading towards us. I am near my car door, which is open, and I hear a swoosh and a thud. I look down and my wallet is lying at my feet! Then the car stops near us and an older man gets out and asks if we are ok. We tell him the story of the missing wallet and how we just found it. We also tell him how we couldn't believe the gate was still open and his reply was, "just for you". We were stunned at what was happening and didn't realize at the time that we were experiencing a miracle. The man gave us directions back to the freeway and asked that we close the gate behind us as we leave. Then he just turned around and drove back into the darkness from where he came. I watched as he just seemed to disapper into nowhere. The impossible became possible.
