Mark Twain - Posted by Rev. Jeff Dixon Senior Equipping Minister at Covenant Community Church on Jan 2, 2002
According to legend, several of Mark Twain’s friends once wanted to send him a birthday greeting while he was traveling abroad. They had no idea where he was, so they simply addressed it to: "Mark Twain, God only knows where he is today." A few weeks later they got a reply from Mark Twain himself. His reply was simple. It contained two words, "He did." It is safe to say that it was a miracle that the letter got to him. But believe it or not, there have been some other miraculous deliveries that I would like to share with you.
