In 1993 my Daddy sent us a check for 125.00 enclosed in this letter written on the back of a church bulletin... the bulletin was a year old at the time.
Dear Sandra and Bob, just a little love gift. But if you had rather have a beautiful card, saying beautiful words, send check back and I will exchange it. HA.
I say to myself, send them 25.00. But something says to me, Why be such a skin flint, send them a hundred.
Don’t worry about this special paper..
One day last week, while feeling sorry for myself, I can’t remember what for right now, I wrote this down after singing it.
Why worry. Why do I worry: Why do I fear, why so much care:. Jesus says, I will always be there. For I careth for you.
I felt better.
One day we will see Jesus. We will know Jesus, as He knows us. We will be with Him forever and ever. Oh what a divine privilege it is for the Christian!
Love you much, your 80 year Daddy….
The thing is our dog Max ATE the check..... the whole check. I called Daddy to say the dog ate it and told him to just add the 125 back and not send it again.
He said no I want to send it but I sent 100 not 125.
He had written 100 and could not figure how to fix it. He took the check book to his brother to straighten it out and sent us another check.
at that time we were living pay check to pay check and I had given a check to our pastor to pay the electric bill for a woman in the church that had no job. The check to the pastor was 125.00. The check from daddy was the same amount we gave away the week before.
the voice in daddy's head that told him to send us 125.00 was put there by God. I do believe that. NOTE: this was a Big Deal... daddy was a skin flint and never sent checks to us...
We did not know it but he was in the beginning stages of Parkinson's and Dementia...
