Excerpt from Chapter 1, When God Calls the Heart at Christmas
We usually associate Christmastime with happiness, but for Jack and Elizabeth, the joy was tempered the year he came home unexpectedly. He was overjoyed to be back for a few days with Elizabeth, but knowing he’d have to return to the Northwest Territories before Christmas Day left a cloud over them both.
Abigail had been excited to have Becky coming home for Christmas—their first official Yuletide as a family. She was devastated when the telegram arrived with news that a snowstorm had stranded Becky in Nelson Ridge. Her heart was broken, but worse, how would she tell Cody? He’d been so excited his sister was coming home.
As most of us discover sooner or later, there are unexpected heartaches that come at us rain or shine, sometimes even at Christmas. Maybe it’s a financial situation that makes the gifts under your tree skimpy or even nonexistent. Or perhaps you’ve suffered the loss of a loved one, a broken relationship, or a health problem.
Those times can prove difficult, but they can also be blessings in disguise because they cause us to lean on God in ways we wouldn’t otherwise. And sometimes the same storms that bring challenges can also be surprise godsends. The storm Becky needed to be rescued from was the same storm that allowed Jack to stay home an extra few days. That’s the way God works. When life brings unexpected change, we can expect one thing from Him: He never changes.
