Some miracles involve God interacting with us on a personal level. Sometimes we are the miracle for someone else.
Emily Warren, my niece, found a wallet on the pavement in the parking lot, while shopping one evening. She looked for information in the wallet so that she could contact the owner. She found that it belonged to a Brazilian family evidently on vacation. There was no address to send the wallet back to either local or Brazilian. Emily thought about her options. She could turn the wallet over to the police, security, take it into a store to find it's owner, or call credit card companies.
An hour and forty-five minutes later with no results she called her pastor for advice and he advised her to call mall security. She called the Winter Garden Village mall security office and gave them her number to claim their lost wallet. A few minutes later she received a call from the owner of the missing wallet. She met the family along with mall security. The missing wallet was received with tears and hugs. The Brazilian tourist saw the kindness of a Christian American girl, as he viewed all the contents still intact in his wallet. His credit cards, pre-paid American Express cards and two-thousand dollars cash as well as his travel documents were all there. He gave her a generous award for her honesty, but the greater reward was that God's glory was seen through Emily. She became someone's miracle.
