I couldn't think of a better title for this post because this is about the greatness of God. :)
Some good friends would know how our family struggled financially this year (sickness, hospitalization, and deaths of family members). I incurred a couple of debts, unpaid bills piled up, and well, we lived on a really tight budget. "Live Simply." That is my family's motto, for this year. Not because we chose to but because we need to.
I only had one wish this Christmas (all my other wishes can be fulfilled next year), that I may be able to have at least _ _ _ _ _ PHP by December 28. That is the sum of money that I need to pay all the bills, insurance, and debts. I want to end the year free from financial obligations. I want to start anew in 2012.
Today, I spent most of my work hours cleaning up the consumer database. My boss needs a summary for the annual business planning tomorrow. It was just another workday until I received an email from APP of HR informing me of the tax refund and the uniform reimbursement which would be credited to my account for the December 28 payout. My heart leaped for joy as I saw the amounts posted. I immediately logged on to my online account to check my balance. Lo and behold, it was just a few bucks less than what I need. Combining that amount to what I still have in my wallet, that results to _ _ _ _ _ _ PHP (and some more)! Just before I left the office, I was able to pay my creditors and the unpaid bills (thanks to online banking). Tomorrow, I'll be paying the insurance, and some other stuffs that cannot be processed online. (The reason why I was praying for me to have the money by the 28th is so that I can still go to the bank the following day - 29th - to complete the other transactions.) It was just awesome! I could never explain the happiness and gratefulness that I feel. Truly, the Lord provides, JUST IN TIME. :)
He is so amazing I couldn't stop thanking Him for this beautiful miracle. :)

To those who prayed with (and for) me, thank you very much. Your prayers are a big help, really! :)
*Ending 2011 with zero debts. Starting 2012 financially free and healthy.*
THANK YOU, LORD! ♥
