Neighbor in Need
--by sonshine, posted Dec 5, 2006
She had not been working before they separated as her youngest child was blind and not yet in school. It was summer time and school was about to start. As I was shopping for items for my granddaughters, I began thinking about her children and how she would be able to get them items they needed that year. I went to the store and bought a gift card and sent it anonymously to her address. When I checked my mail a couple of days later, I saw her down the street as she checked hers and opened the envelope. I couldn't tell her reaction because of the distance between our houses, however, a day later when I saw the car pull up in the driveway and the children each get out of the car with sacks, I knew in my heart God had used me to do a good thing for this struggling family. I give Him the thanks and praise for allowing me the money and this opportunity to help someone else in need.
