I had such a spiritual feeling.

Kindness Touches.
A few weeks ago I stopped in Goodwill for my weekly “treasure” hunt. It was a rare occasion that I actually had cash in my purse. As I was going through the children’s books close to the back hall where the bathrooms are, I could hear a man softly talking and sobbing. He was telling the person, I don’t know what to do! I only have about a hours worth of minutes on this phone and I need about $20 more to make it to Nashville. I heard him say he was so scared and didn’t know what to do.

I tried really hard to ignore what I was hearing and try not to be intrusive. As he broke into tears, I quietly walked away not wanting to embarrass him. I saw him again as I walked passed and he look just broken, I turned around and walked over as he hung up the phone. I apologized for over hearing and asked if there was anything I could do for him. He said he could use some prayers, he just found out his daughter was in ICU at Vanderbilts children’s hospital and that was a doctor telling him he needed to come as she wasn’t expected to make it.

I dug through my purse and I had a $20 bill, which was a miracle as I just don’t carry cash. He began to cry and he hug, me and thanked me. I ask if he had a car here and he said he did. I told him to meet me at the gas station and I’d fill it up for him. We talked while the car was filling up and I felt such a spiritual feeling there that I knew at that moment God had put us both there at the same time. I pray daily that God will use me as his vessel to do his work, most days I fail as I get so caught up in myself and my day! But God truly used me that day, and he also used that man and that situation to help me in many ways. – Linda
