    Default A real nice story

    A GLASS OF MILK?


    One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his
    way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was
    hungry.

    He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost
    his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.

    Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked
    hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it so slowly,
    and then asked, How much do I owe you?"

    You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never
    to accept pay for a kindness."

    He said ... "Then I thank you from my heart."

    As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically,
    but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up
    and quit.

    Many year's later that same young woman became critically ill. The
    local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where
    they called in specialists to study her rare disease.

    Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the
    name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes.
    Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her
    room.

    Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her
    at once.

    He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to
    save her life. From that day he gave special attention to her case.

    After a long struggle, the battle was won.

    Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him
    for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the
    bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would
    take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and
    something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She read these words ...

    "Paid in full with one glass of milk"

    (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.

    Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: "Thank You,
    God, that Your love has spread broad through human hearts and hands."

    There's a saying which goes something like this: Bread cast on the
    waters comes back to you. The good deed you do today may benefit you or
    someone you love at the least expected time.? If you never see the deed again at least you will have made the world a better place - And, after all,
    isn't that what life is all about?

    The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which
    -- To
    burn .. ? ? ?
