    I love that story, Annette. Your mom told it to me a long time ago and I seriously believe the original person who couldn’t be found once the food was collected was an angel.

      The other girls and I believed the same thing. It is an experience I will treasure for the rest of my life.

    I’m sorry, Annette, but I don’t recall you having other girls involved in that story. I have no doubt that the first person who asked you for food was an angel. He knew which child in the neighborhood would respond to the request. This was in total answer to prayer from the person who you gave the food to.

      The first person actually spoke to Levanah Worley and Nadine Stein. They came and found me and asked me what to do. The three of us worked together that day. I did most of the talking to the neighbors though. I also suggested praying for who God wanted us to give what we had collected to.

      For a long time when telling this story, I put myself with the others when they met who I fully believe to be an angel, but that was a lie. I didn’t meet him personally, but I felt lead to undertake the task anyway. I KNOW that voice was God’s.

      Please forgive me for the lie I told you on that day. I know I have since asked for forgiveness and corrected the story to be the truth. But I still feel guilty for lying in the first place. I took credit for something that was not fully mine. I acted on God’s urging but I never got to meet my angel in person.

        Yes, Sis, I forgive you. If I wasn’t willing to forgive you then I cannot expect to be forgiven for my trespasses, right?

          That’s what He says. But I prefer to think it is because you love me. More out of love than out of duty. 🙂
          I love you mom!
