Two weeks ago we sent a scarf to a young lady who had lost her husband to suicide. This is her response to receiving the scarf on assignment.
"I had asked the Lord for a sign, some days ago. I prayed for some kind of confirmation that I am not alone as I have been feeling. I asked for some symbol of His presence, some form of proof that He can hear me, that He is with me. Since my beloved husband's death, I have endured a deep, hollow emptiness that is too hard to put in words. My faith was rocked and I was scared the Lord could not hear me. I was scared He had left my life, as my husband did.
My trips to my mailbox of late have been further depressing. I have had so much to take on in the wake of the recent tradgedy. Suffice to say, I no longer look forward to checking the mail, until...
I grabbed the mail on my way to ballet class, I had arrived a little early for dance, so I thought I would open this curious package. With a heavy heart I tore it open.
I unravelled a magic scarf! The moment I put it in my hands, something wonderful and warm flooded my soul. Reading the cards that came with it, brought me genuine joy, it felt like the Lord Himself had sent me some mail. Suddenly, His presence was so palpable there, surrounding me, I instantly felt brave, protected, loved and for the first time in a while, I felt a great light shining down on me. With these sensations also came a feeling of calm assurance. Such peace came over me.
Everytime I wear it, I feel beyond empowered. I wore it to my private ballet class and I felt so thoroughly blessed, my heart was bursting. Needless to say, I can feel God's love for me within this scarf, it is the sign I asked for, the very confirmation I had been yearning for. The timing was incredible. When I touch it or wear it, I can feel the love of God's people that helped the scarf come to me. I can almost hear the Lord smiling. I am unable to properly express the extent and depth of my gratitude".
