Louise Redden, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery store.


She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries. 
  
She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food. 
  
John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store at once. 
  
Visualizing the family needs, she said: 'Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can.' 
  
John told her he could not give her credit, since she did not have a charge account at his store. 
  
Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the  conversation between the two The customer walked forward and told the grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her family. The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, 'Do you have a grocery list?' 
  
Louise replied, 'Yes sir.' 'O.K' he said, 'put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries.' 
  
Louise hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed. 
  
The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down.. 
  
The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly, 'I can't believe it.' 
  
The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales. The scale did not  balance so he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more. 
  
The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement. 
  
It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said: 
  
'Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.' 
  
The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in stunned silence. 
  
Louise thanked him and left the store. The other customer handed a hundred-dollar bill to the grocer and said; 'It was worth every penny of it. Only God Knows how much a prayer weighs.' 
  
THE POWER: When you receive this, say a prayer. That's all you have to do. 
  
Just stop right now, and say a prayer of thanks for your own good fortune... 
  
I believe if you will send this testimony out with prayer in faith, you will receive what you need God to do in your and your families' life.. 
  
So dear heart, trust God to heal the sick, provide food for the hungry, clothes and shelter for those that don't have as we do.

 

 Amen & Amen 
  
  
My prayer for you today: 
  
The eyes beholding this message shall not behold evil, the hands that will send this message to others shall not labor in vain, the mouth saying Amen to this prayer shall laugh forever. Remain in God's love as you send this prayer to everybody on your list. Have a lovely journey of life! Trust in the Lord with all your heart and He will never fail you because He is Awesome!

My father-in-law had a grocery store.  He gave credit to whoever needed it.  Then he became ill, was hospitalized at the same time a large chain built their store almost next door and deliberately sold under price to drive him out.  He lost the store, but he recovered.  It was a hard time, but for many years after that he continued to receive small payments in the mail, sometimes anonymously thanking him for the credit when they needed it.  He also recovered financially in the long run, invested well and has more than enough to enjoy his retirement.  He was and still is a very kind and generous man.  God bless him.

Rhonda, at our Branson retreat, shared this wonderful funny video that s-o-o-o explains why it is so hard for men and women to communicate!  I can't wait to show it to my husband!

lSubject: FW: sex at 95

 

Upon hearing that her elderly grandfather had just passed away, Katie went straight to her grandparent's house to visit her 95-year-old grandmother and comfort her. When she asked how her grandfather Had died, her grandmother replied, He had a heart attack while we were Making love on Sunday Morning." Horrified, Katie told her grandmother that 2 people nearly 100 Years old having sex would surely be asking for trouble. "Oh no, my dear," replied granny. "Many years ago, realizing our Advanced age, we figured out the best time to do it was when the Church bells would start to ring. It was just the right rhythm. Nice And slow and even... Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the Ding and out on the Dong."

 

She paused to wipe away a tear, and continued, "He'd still be alive If the ice cream truck hadn't come along!”
