Come on people, time to get into the holiday mood. Now that November is upon us, the good will toward men and counting your blessings can begin! With that in mind, I'd like to introduce you to a wonderful holiday story written by June McCrary Jacobs.
A Holiday Miracle in Apple Blossom is just the book to open your heart to the warm feelings of Christmas.
If there's one thing I've learned this year, it's that just under the surface, everyone is hurting in some way. If there is ever a time of year to find hope in humanity, hope in love, and hope in Christ, this is it. Take some time to really count your blessings, express your gratitude for each, and allow the peace that comes to fill your soul.
“What's happened?” Amber asked.
“One of your students was critically injured in an accident.”
Amber let out a squeak. “Who?”
Tragedy brings heartache to the community of Apple Blossom. A car takes the life of 6-year-old Mary Noel Simmons’s best friend—her dog—and nearly destroys Mary Noel’s spirit as well. Now she lies at the hospital, traumatized and silent, while the medical bills are piling up with no way for her parents to pay them.
That is, until Mary Noel’s teacher, Amber Kellen, breaks out of her quiet, lonely life to help.
With the help of her new friend Paul, Amber sets out to solve the family’s financial problems by involving the entire community. And as the two friends work together, they discover that creating a Christmas miracle may also has some unexpected benefits. Filled with romance and kindness, this story of hope and faith will warm your hearts.
