The Hands and Feet of Jesus

walmartbeerToday, 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.

    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.

    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.

  6. 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

    The good Lord is saying,”Well done faithful servant”! what a testimony of her faith.

  10. Everyday miracles on an ordinary day. Thankfully we live in a country where such random acts of kindness are allowed.

    I love the way you write! I am going to follow your site everyday..

  12. Perhaps she was preventing someone from murdering someone in a drunken rage. I speak from experience.

  13. Amazing story, Paula 🙂

  14. 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!
