Today, when I least expected it, I witnessed something awesome. I was on my way home and had stopped in for a few things at the grocery store. I grabbed my last item and rounded the corner to head up the beverage aisle when I stopped for a moment to decipher what I thought I was seeing. There was an older woman randomly touching cases of beer. My first thoughts were that perhaps they were too heavy for her to lift into her basket? But before I could offer assistance, my heart was warmed by what she was doing. She was going from cube to cube of beer, carefully tucking tracts inside the openings. (a tract is a tiny leaflet that shares Bible verses) I can only guess what was going through her mind as she did this. Perhaps she was attempting to save a person from despair? brokenness? heartache? financial ruin? Whatever her reasons…. I say bless her heart. 🙂
Some folks tell you they are the hands of feet of Jesus. Others simply try to make a difference when they think no one is watching.
Now THAT’S a cool observation.
Sure makes you slow down and think in this hurry up world, Laurie! 🙂
that is nice i have never thought about that!!
yes it is 🙂
♥ I thought she was so sweet, Dottie ~
Thanks for sharing your observation. Brings to mind that we never know what a blessing we may be to others by our actions….intentional or not.
So true….we just never know ♥
Thank you for sharing your breathtaking observation. I had a brother that died of alcoholism at the age of 41. I wish one of those “tracts” could have reached him.
I am so sorry……I wish it could have as well ♥ We can’t change the entire world….but we can each have an impact in some way. I believe that.
Awwww bless her heart. Maybe she lost a loved one to alcoholism and this is her way of reaching out. What a selfless act.
I wondered about that too, Delores. ♥
I like the way she followed her personal convictions, but did it quietly and without overtly making someone uncomfortable. If even one tract turns out to be a blessing, how about that! ox
I guess all you can do is plant the seed, right?
The good Lord is saying,”Well done faithful servant”! what a testimony of her faith.
I agree….. from her heart.
Wow..that’s pretty neat! And leave it to you to notice and be able to capture the moment! 🙂
I didn’t want to be “caught” taking pics of people at the grocery store….so I snapped fast! I really think she was there just for that. She only had a couple of items in her cart. Her heart was in it…which is what made it meaningful. I forgot the peanut butter and went back inside…..she was still there. 🙂
I have no doubts that you are quite stealth..and know EXACTLY how to capture the moment without being caught. Something just tells me….
you just know too much 😉
Thank you for sharing with us!
Appreciate you ♥
Everyday miracles on an ordinary day. Thankfully we live in a country where such random acts of kindness are allowed.
Oh I like that, Sheri….every day miracles!
I love the way you write! I am going to follow your site everyday..
I was so tickled to find your blog this evening. Thanks so much for the visit! I look forward to exploring your blog MORE! 🙂 paula
It’s totally interesting we write in the same manner… check your writing with mine… Weird huh?
Interesting and funny, too! YOU keep up the great work! 🙂
Perhaps she was preventing someone from murdering someone in a drunken rage. I speak from experience.
Something was definitely on her mind and heart ♥
Amazing story, Paula 🙂
🙂 A sweet thing to behold.
I ended up here after you “liked” my review of Two Hearts by Linda Hoye. I. Just. Love. This. Post! What a grand reminder of who we are and what we’re to be about when we call ourselves Christians. Thanks for making my day!
So glad you landed here, Sherrey!!! This sweet lady warmed my heart. A wonderful reminder for all of us! Have a super weekend ♥ paula
