There was a time I received an unforgettable Christmas gift. It was only shortly after I had started working as a dean at Wesley Theological Seminary.  During this time when I was struggling with unfamiliar and difficult job I had taken on and dealing with my teen-aged son and daughter, I went on a business trip to Philadelphia.  The car suddenly stopped on the highway while driving back. I was barely able to park the car on the shoulder, but I was ignorant about what was going on. I could not contact anyone because I did not have a cell phone, and when the short winter sun began to set to the west, I was almost in panic. Soon,  my car would be standing in the dark being vulnerable for other cars to run into it and I was helplessly stranded on the road in the freezing cold. I came out and was staring at the car when one of the oncoming cars from the other side of the barricade stopped and a man came out asking what was happening. He could have been Jesus!  

I told him the car had suddenly stopped. He climbed across the barricade and started examining my car. A little later, he looked at me and said, "There is no gas." I had been running even forgetting to put gas in. I was so embarrassed, flustered and awkward... And I had no idea how to get gas in the middle of the highway. He looked at me and told me to wait for him to go to the gas station and bring gas back. Then he went over the barricade again and left. He came back with a container of gas climbing over the barricade but the problem was that there was no hose or funnel to put the gas in the car. In despair, I started staring helplessly again. "I will make a funnel with my hands, pour gas into my hands" he said, but coming back from my blank stare, I told him to pour gas into my hands. He laughed and said that my hands would be too small and then put his funnel shaped hands at the mouth of the fuel tank. It was rapidly getting dark for visibility so I was forced to pour ice-cold gas into his hands. After pouring all the gas, he refused all compensation, said, "It's a Christmas gift.", went over the barricade and left. He had changed all my Christmas since then because I, too, want to give unforgettable gifts. During this Christmas season, I pray that you all would consider giving an unforgettable Christmas gift to someone.
