Story from the Streets

A lady came up to me last night and thanked me over and over for the tennis shoes we gave her last week.  She told me that these are the first pair she's ever owned.  Growing up, her mother wouldn't allow her to have them.  She wore dress shoes only.  She told me that she had washed them and that they were very clean.  As I looked down at her feet I saw her wearing socks and sandals.  It was raining and her feet were dripping wet.  I guess she didn't want to get her new shoes wet.  It is funny how something like a pair of used tennis shoes can make someone so happy.  Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
