A Christmas Wish and Santa's Prayer

This photo was originally posted by a mother who was moved to action by such a gracious moment she witnessed in life. She shared it with the world and was seeking this little boy.  However, the first time I saw a similar picture, it was sent to me by this young man's mom. Privately, we cried and loved not only Jacob's heart, but also that of one wonderful Santa. 
You see when Jacob went to see Santa he knew that Christmas might not bring a lot of presents because his dad has been sick. They have been struggling for some time with his dad in and out of the hospital trying to find out why. Jacob asked Santa to help with the medical bills and that his dad Jason would be healthy.  Santa did what in my opinion the very best of friends do for you -  He prayed with him.  Jacob's dad  is the primary support of their family. Being ill, impending medical bills and lost wages has put a damper on things this holiday season. But, you would never hear a single person in their family complain. Jason, troops through and gets back to work to make sure he can take care of his family, while Emma his wife works her magic to make the most of everything. These two  have a heart the size of Texas and their whole family is living proof of the way they live God's love. They are the kindest, most giving people I know.  Many of you would like to help with medical bills, easy the worry of daily bills and to help make this Christmas a little brighter for them. Although, accepting help is completely out of their nature, I cannot think of a family that would be more blessed by your love. Thank you for helping make my little man’s Christmas wish come true and showing that God is so good, that His love and grace is so sufficient and that prayers are answered. Merry Christmas! P.S. –  Santa, if you ever read this… thank you.
