Miracles come after the trial of faith, yet there may still be trials after the miracle. Christmas would teach this mother that though she participated in the miracle of having children; perhaps the price of the miracle would mean that she wouldn’t be there to raise them to adulthood. Christmas Angels Whisper is that story.
The doctor told Wanda that she had a fourth of an ovary and that child bearing was not an option. God had promised her that she would have children. Was God going to lie to her? God fulfills His promises. After years of waiting and trying, Wanda brought five children into this world and was a mother just as was promised. With the miracle came an unwanted price since we have come to believe that Heaven has a price on some of its most cherished of gifts. It wasn’t that it was authored by a loving God, but the seeds of cancer were sown as the gift was made real for five times. This young family would watch their mother succumb to a dreadful disease, slowly leaching the life from her. Wanda had a challenge understanding why the children she had been promised wouldn’t be hers to raise to adulthood. Christmas would come that year before she finally died in February and the gift she craved was just to understand God’s will in granting the blessing and then seemingly ripping it away in a slow death. Miracles happen to create life and miracles happen to explain why life gets cut short.
