An Angel and a Pepsi
--by marebear, posted Oct 25, 2007
I was not employed at the time and I was getting help from the government by getting food stamps. One day, I was walking to the store when I noticed a little man sitting on a bench across from the store. I walked past him but could not stop thinking about him.
I turned around and went up to him and asked him if he was ok. He said no. He said he hadn't eaten in 2 days. I told him, "Dont worry, I'll be right back." I turned back again and asked him what he would like. He said it didn't matter. I then asked him to tell me what he hadn't had in a long time. He said "a Pepsi". I went into the store and got him a loaf of bread, some lunch meat, chips, cookies -- enough food for a few days. The store I had gone into didn't have "Pepsi" so I had some change; it wasn't much because I wasn't working but it didn't matter. I used the last of what I had to get him his Pepsi from the 7-11 across the street.
When I brought him his food and his "Pepsi" he cried. I cried too. But when he stood up to hug me, I noticed that the bench he was sitting on, had an inscription on it: "In God we trust."
I have walked past that bench every day and never ever noticed the inscription. When I hugged this man, I had a feeling I never felt before. I can't even explain the feeling. I started walking home with tears running down my face but when I turned back to see the little man, he was gone. This is why I think He was an angel from God.
I also feel good about helping people even tho i am on a tight buget i try to help anyway. They appreciate the help so very much.
God bless and i pray you are blessed in life.
You received more than you gave thay day, didnt you? God Bless you!
if not for the grace of God go I.
God bless you.................
the year that you choose to help out one
of the homeless who really needed it.here
is my gift of 10 karma bucks.
We never ever know the implications that a small kindness can do.
Although begging is against the law here in Austria, I always give something to those illegal beggars, because it could have been me is that situation.
I believe what I give without any ulterior motive comes back.
