I just had to tell about this! About 10:15 tonight our doorbell rang. I was a little leery about answering it because (1) it was late at night; and (2) I was in my pajamas! I turned on the porch light and there was one of Sam's friends. His family are good friends of ours, and my tummy sank as I saw some other people out there with him - I thought it was his parents, and here I was in my jammies. So I stood to the side and opened the door. Sam's friend stepped back . . . AND THERE WERE OUR BOYS!!!!!
A dear, kind, wonderful, thoughtful friend had arranged over 2 weeks ago for our boys to come home tonight and surprise us. Sam is home till Saturday morning; he could only get off for Christmas Day. Andrew is home for a whole week! He will go back next Thursday.
I'm shocked, but praising the Lord tonight that we'll all be together tomorrow after all. I'd been crying all afternoon - now I'm just laughing at myself. Thank you, Lord! And thank you to our friends for arranging this - we'll never forget this Christmas!
