Did you ever think of something in a pinch, when you thought all was lost? Well, that’s the Holy Spirit, taking care of you when you weren’t thinking. This past New Year’s Eve, my son was visiting, and my wife had plenty of gifts, Christmas gifts for the granddaughter, since we hadn’t seen them. But I, forgetful as ever, had nothing to give.
Then it came to me. Of course, on New Year’s Eve, I had several bottles of fine wine stored for a few years, and so I gave my daughter-in-law her favorite white wine, and my son, a fine bottle of Chardonnay. That was the Holy Spirit urging me to use a never-to-be-confused spirit for Christmas. My granddaughter was so flooded with my wife’s gifts she didn’t even notice Grandpa.
