Prayers from people far away bring a long-lost son home. The music of Christmas transforms an irritable Santa Claus line at a mall. A cross glows without electricity in a message of hope, and an angel warms a freezing child. All these and other wonderful stories reveal that when we have faith, we can find ourselves unexpectedly blessed, every day of the year.
One bitter night, Nancy awakened and lay in the dark. She had curled into a little ball, trying to keep as warm as possible, but it wasn't working. She felt numb, as if she had turned to ice. Nancy tried to pull the blanket up to her chin. But her arms were stiff, and they wouldn't work! Suddenly the room began to glow. Brighter and brighter. What was happening? Nancy rubbed her eyes in wonder. Here, right in front of her, stood a beautiful angel. Tenderly, the angel smiled at her. Then she bent over, gently picked up Nancy's blanket, and pulled it up to the girl's chin. Nancy felt a burst of warmth, safety, and love. Instantly, the freezing room seemed filled with sunshine.
