This was not a friendly neighbor. In fact, since she had moved in, she had made my sister’s life difficult. She would (frivolously) call the police complaining about noise and barking dogs. She filed complaints against my sister with the HOA. She called animal control and my sister got a citation for not having her dog’s vaccination records available. She set up cameras facing my sister’s apartment. All in all, she was a neighbor from hell.
How awful. But now we see a reason why this poor unhappy person made others so unhappy.
I hope this neighbor will - like your sister - overcome the abuse and learn to live a happy fulfilled life.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Thank you so much for sharing this story.
I have lived through several examples of God working His Grace in similar ways.
Prayers for your sister’s neighbor and her children.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Amen. It’s a wonderful story.
I myself am not such a good person. Pray as I might, in the back of my mind still lurks a sarcastic and skeptical person. The sort of person who wonders how long it will be before the other women at the shelter are demanding that an officious virago be thrown out.
In all seriousness, I hope the children find a a safe and loving place. Perhaps you and your sister were there primarily to rescue the children at this Christmas season.

Hope the neighbor makes the decision to move out and stay out.

He knew just where to send this woman and her children. Dont be surprised if He sends others to you. God loves a generous heart.

Thank you for sharing this. The Lord works in mysterious ways. Though, later on, He sometimes reveals the path He helped you travel to get where He wanted you to be. Amazing. God bless and Merry Christmas.

Here is a very well done study about the birth of Jesus.
Happy Birthday, John
Zechariah and Elizabeth, John’s parents, had been unable to have children. Then the Angel Gabriel visited Zechariah during one of his tours of duty in the Temple (Luke 1:8-11). Zechariah was the priest chosen by lot to offer prayers at the Golden Altar just outside the Holy of Holies. This was already a once in a lifetime honor but Gabriel’s appearance made it even more unique. Only twice before had an event like this taken place, and all involved barren women and Messianic promise. Hannah was given a son Samuel who later anointed David King of Israel. The mother of Samson was told her son would begin the deliverance of Israel from the Philistines. And now Zechariah was being told that his son would be the one to proclaim the coming Messiah.
We have to assume that wanting a son more than anything (it was a woman’s crowning achievement in that era, whereas being barren was considered a punishment from God) Zechariah and Elizabeth went about the process of conception immediately upon his return home. So when was that? Choosing Teams
King David had divided the priests into 24 courses (divisions) to serve rotating one-week periods in the temple. All 24 divisions served during the Feasts and so each one also served twice a year on rotation. The religious year began about mid-March on our calendar and right away there were nearly three weeks of preparation and Feasts; Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits. Then the divisions began their rotation.
Comparing Luke 1:5 to 1 Chronicles 24:10 shows that Zechariah was of the division of Abijah, number eight in the weekly rotation. Counting the time all were on duty and the eight weeks in rotation when Zechariah’s turn came puts the visit by Gabriel about 3 months into the religious year. A normal 9 month gestation period places the birth of John the Baptist at the beginning of the following religious year (mid-March, remember) and indeed there are many who believe he was born on Passover.
Let’s convert this to our calendar to avoid further confusion and discover a fascinating possibility about December 25th. In all probability John the Baptist was conceived in mid June and born the following March. According to Luke 1:36 Mary conceived in the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy. That means that our Lord was conceived in late December and born in September. Are we inadvertently celebrating His conception at Christmas instead of His birth?

What a beautiful testimony! I’ve seen such “coincidences” time and again in my long life. Hallelujah! God is great!
