Inheritance Blessings

All of us have an earthly inheritance
Given to us by our own birth parents
Greater blessings await us in the future
When our eternal destination is secure

Two unexpected blessings came recently
Both inheritance related beyond monetary
I share them with you from a grateful heart
God’s timely blessings He freely imparts

First sent in a Christmas card with a check
Note said she cared about me quite a shock
From executor of my dad’s cousin’s estate
Lengthy battle with colon cancer as her fate

I had already heard about her death last Fall
When her aunt let me know by a phone call
She graciously shared updates on her condition
Lady who died younger not very close in relation

I had sent her an email early on in her illness
To encourage her from my trials as the focus
No reply came so perhaps it did not go through
I sense God used me in some way He chose too

Second blessing came the first part of January
Notice from the State of unclaimed property
Under my mom’s name deceased over 10 years
Called the number for surprising news to hear

Lady said my mom had an insurance policy
She gave me amount and issuing company
After all this time I was cautiously skeptical
She had their phone number for me to call

Insurance company answered all my questions
Including why over ten years before notification
She said it takes time to go through social security
When they are not informed of the death by family

She told me documents needed to prove my identity
To be able to receive it as sole heir in that capacity
I found all in my safe deposit box at the bank but one
Called again other not needed so mailed it my part done

NOTE:  God has taught me some valuable lessons through the second experience, especially in regards to the
importance of keeping your family and / or personal representatives designated in your Last Will up to date about
all financial matters.
