Whyte House Family Spoken Novels Holiday Edition #43: A Miraculous Thanksgiving Chapter 4

Welcome to the Whyte House Family Spoken Novels podcast: Holiday Edition episode #43. Today we are reading chapter 4 of the book “A Miraculous Thanksgiving” by Daniel Whyte III with Meriqua Whyte.


Six Days and Counting Down…

On Friday, the sixth day before Thanksgiving, Adriena wondered what she could do special that day. Mr. Atkinson had plans to take them to the park later in the day. Adriena checked the cupboards and the freezer to see if somehow someone had stocked up for Thanksgiving. She made sure she had given the list of things to get to her mother so nothing would be forgotten. Nope! There was not even a can of sweet golden kernel corn in the cupboards and not even a turkey in the freezer. I just hope this won’t be a turkey-less Thanksgiving.

She did enjoy herself at the park—the one with a trail that twisted and curved around the full-grown trees. After walking with her family, while Mr. and Mrs. Atkinson went running around the track, she and her siblings went to the playground to swing Caleb and Sasha on the swings. “Whee!” went Sasha as she went high in the sky. Adriena met a little Mexican girl about her age. She had fun trying to figure out what she was saying to her as they played in the sandbox building sand castles. The little girl, Mia, shared her apple with Adriena. They reluctantly said ‘goodbye’ and ‘adios’ to each other when Mia’s mother said it was time to go.

On the way home, Adriena asked her father could they take something to some more homeless people. “Well, I’ve been thinking, you children have a couple of scooters that you do not play with, why don’t you clean them off and give them to the family next to us. Those boys would love to have them. You could leave them by the door with a note.”

“Sounds good to me,” Adriena said with a smile. That evening Adriena wrote on her I THANK GOD FOR… list: “I thank God for my neighbors and for meeting Mia at the playground.”


Thank you for joining us for this episode of Whyte House Family stories. You may purchase a copy of this novel and any other Christian fiction books read on this podcast from Amazon.com.

Now, dear listener, please know that God—the divine Author of all things—wants to write a great story with your life as well. But first you must give Him the pen by trusting Him with the life He gave you and surrendering your heart to Jesus Christ as Savior. Here is how:

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20: “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 reads: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

2. Accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

3. Accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” The Bible says in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

4. Accept the fact that you cannot do anything to save yourself! The Bible states in Ephesians 2: 8, 9: “For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

5. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

6. With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. The Bible states in the book of Romans 10:9, 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

May God bless you until next time.
