A knock at the door
It was a cold Saturday morning in Chicago, and my husband and I woke up to no food in the house for our children to eat, and no gas in the car to go and get anything – even if we could borrow the money. We usually don’t have days like this, however my husband had just finished school and the mail with his check in it was sent back. Our family and friends all lived a long distance away from us. However I knew in my spirit that everything would be alright. I had just finished reading The Secret and shared that information with my husband and children. We all thanked God and the universe for always being there for our family, for providing a way when it seems there is no way to be had, and for providing us with more than enough all the time.
Not more than five minutes had gone by when there was a knock at the door. Usually we wouldn’t answer the door unless the bell has rung and we buzzed them in the building. Something was different this time – it didn’t feel like all the other times, so I opened the door. There was a lady standing in the hall and she stated that she wanted me to participate in a survey and that I would be compensated for my time. I was unable to do the survey because I didn’t fit the criteria. I wasn’t disappointed, and I didn’t give up the feeling that everything would be alright. As I thanked the lady for considering me, she asked if my son could try, and he was what they were looking for.
After the session was complete we thought that he would get a gift certificate or something like that, which we would have been grateful for. It turns out that he got thirty dollars cash right on the spot! That was more than enough for gas and food. On our way to the store we stopped for gas. My husband was pumping gas and I noticed a lottery machine and told my husband that I had a good feeling about it. I asked him for a dollar and bought a scratch-off ticket, and instantly won another twenty dollars! That was a total of fifty dollars within a half hour that we didn’t have before.
We know the Secret is real, and true to its power we are living testaments of the Secret working on our behalf. Thank you.
