Christmas Jar Story: 'I sat in my car and sobbed'

Alvin, Texas

My husband and I have had a very rough year. First, hurricane Ike destroyed our hom. Then, in May, my husband had an emergency quadruple bypass operation. We have two young boys, ages 9 and 4. My husband lost a lot of hours at his second job and we have been struggling. Today, I was at the end of my rope. I am a Christian. I love the Lord and know that He is in control, but today, I was feeling very sorry for myself. I didn't have enough money to pay the water bill, let alone presents for our children for Christmas. I was leaving work (my church is also my employer) and when I got to my car, there was a gift on my front seat. It was a jar with around $130 inside. Attached to the jar was a note that said "may you be blessed this Christmas". I sat in my car and sobbed. I have never felt the presence of Christ more than I did at that moment. I cannot wait until we are back on our feet so that I may touch someone's life the way I was touched today. What a remarkable, miraculous gift.


  1. What an amazing gift you are giving to so many people. What an incredible blessing to be a part of such an awesome miracle.

  2. This is such an amazing story! I tear up generally at the slightest thing anyway, but this really touched my heart! People are awesome :)

  3. I marvel at the humility and gratitude of those receiving the anonymous jars....none that i've read about rave about the money but of the act of someone caring enough to reach out to them.
    That is real Christlike love on both sides :)
