In 1979 at a storage unit auction I asked the Lord if there was something He wanted me to buy.
In the box was an Amplified Bible -- On the inside page was someone's handwriting that said:
This so spoke to me because of my circumstances at the time and how the Lord got the message to me. (I was trying to start a non-profit organization at the time to help seniors get help in their home and kept hitting walls.)
He will do that for us all if/when we call upon Him and need His encouragement to keep going.
Something else that was in that box was someone's Purple Heart from WWII.
I kept that Purple Heart, trying to find the owner from 1979 to 2013 when I finally discovered an organization on the web that reunites Purple Hearts with the rightful owner or family.
It was so awesome to see after all those years - 34 of them, to see the Purple Heart be given back to family. The son of the soldier received the Purple Heart and a few months later he passed away as well. I spoke with him on the phone and he cried and sobbed in his gratitude of seeing His Father's Purple Heart.
Here is a link to the story published by KCBY News at the time: 30 years later, Canby woman reunites Purple Heart with family
