Trinity's Advent Calendar - December 24

It has been a pretty challenging and disappointing year for me.  We've experienced some things that are stressful some things that are hard.  I am used to those things and the older I get the easier it seems to be able to deal with those things (or ignore them).  But this year was different because we experienced some hurtful things that were out of our control and very difficult to understand.  So when I was given the opportunity to tell a story for Advent, I have to be honest.  I was just not feeling it!
Things lately feel like some kind of testing.  Does God test you, I wonder.  Haven't I been tested enough?  When does the test end?  What is wrong with me that I need to be tested.  What am I supposed to learn?  How do I discern God's will for me, for my family?  How do I know what to do?  Why me? ME, ME ME!!!
Then a week or two later, BOOM!  I get an email from my 31 year old nephew.  I last heard from him Christmas a year ago.  Out of the blue, he sends me this:

It made everything better and really, really helped to deal with the pain I've been feeling.
If that does not demonstrate the prophetic voice of God speaking directly to me,  I don't know what does.  Thank you Nephew Calvin and thank you God.  I am so grateful for what I have.  There is so much more to do.  There is so much more to look forward to!
