An eye witness account from New York

City , on a cold day in December,

some years ago: A little boy,

about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store on the

roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering

With cold.

A lady approached the young boy and said,

'My, but you're in such deep thought staring in that window!'

'I was asking God to give me a pair of

shoes,' was the boy's reply.

The lady took him by the hand, went into

the store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks

for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water

and a towel. He quickly brought them to her.

She took the little fellow to the back

part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed

his little feet, and dried them with the towel.

By this time, the clerk had returned with

the socks.. Placing a pair upon the boy's feet, she purchased him

a pair of shoes..

She tied up the remaining pairs of socks

and gave them to him. She patted him on the head and said, 'No

doubt, you will be more comfortable now..'

As she turned to go, the astonished kid

caught her by the hand, and looking up into her face, with tears

in his eyes, asked her:

'Are you God's wife?'

Wonderful story. Sometimes it is easy to forget how lucky we are compared to how some people struggle to survive.

No need to steal it...It's yours

Makes you think doesn't it. Sometimes we don't see the troubles that are un der our nose, we are so focussed on our own troubles. Hope I can look beyond myself.
