Congratulations, dear friend Mariane!! What a testimony your precious father has left to all of us through your anointed skill in writing! Great story! Great Truth! Great Love!
Amazing true story, Marianne. What a blessing to have such a man of faith as your father.
Forgive me for spelling your name wrong, Mariane (but the spell checker told me I was wrong).
Great message...
Gives my faith a boost
I hear these stories of great faith and have even experienced a small sample but you capture the reality of sacrificial faith in a way that is humbling for all of us who want to compromise when it hurts. Thanks for sharing real life and real faith.
Mariane, I have read this story before, but reading it again in FW, I was blessed all over again... Recently, as always, I have experienced answers to prayers, spoken, or in my heart.
Blessings, Helen
This is a fantastic story of God's faithfulness and definitely deserves your Best of the Best. Congratulations!
Congratulations on winning the yearly award, Mariane!

Your story has stuck with me through the year. God will supply all your needs.
This made my heart smile. :) Thanks, Marianne, and congratulations!
That story is very encouraging to know that God always keeps his part of promise.
This is a beautiful piece.
This was a touching illustration of God's loving providence when we obey Him.

You have such a gift as a story teller and I couldn't wait to read the end of the story.

Certainly worthy of Best of the Best.
I found your story quite moving. I know what it is like to try to make ends meet. yes I do believe in tithing to the lord even if I had to give less money in the collection than other weeks. Wonderful story. God knows my hardship as well as others who are going through the same thing.
Your dad showed amazing faith. What an example for all us! I loved this entry.
I love this story all over again!
