Life has many hurdles, making us who we are & what God wants us to be. For that I'm thankful, although at times I find it hard to feel that way. Give me strength & thanks for those daily challenges!

Isn't This What Life Is All About?

Oct 5th 2010 at 11:59 AM

From my good friend Faye:

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, and 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 water 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.

A very moving story. It just goes to show that Bread cast on the water comes back to you. The good deed you do today may benefit you, or someone you love, at the least expected time. This story about Dr. Howard Kelly clearly brings this out.

A wonderful article. We always have to give attention to what we are doing now - in a way or another it will come back to us.

I like it so much your article, we all suppose to help each other in the same way. When you help somebody with all your heart, don't expect to be paid. What you give to other the same recieve in return 3 times more. This is the Universal Law. God Bless!

This is a great story Susan. Thank you for sharing it with us all. We all need reminders that life isn't all about us.

Oh how the world would be so much a better place if we all lived our lives like this. Jesus said love one another as you love yourself. I have seen things like this happen in my life and many others. thanks for such a great article.

Susan, this is a great article and one we should all keep in mind. The kindness we show may not be re-payed to us by the ones we show it to but by countless others. I love these stories....Thank you
