A Little Sunday Ditty

Folks, I am not trying to portray myself as a paragon of patience. I get annoyed standing behind the woman in the supermarket checkout line who after the clerk has totaled her groceries, she digs around in her purse looking for her checkbook.

Today, I felt lead to allow two little white girls around 9 and 8 years old to go ahead of me in line with their few snacks. There was a problem with a barcode. The littlest girl ran back to get the same item with a readable barcode.

The checkout line next to us was free and clear. I felt lead not to move to another line. The girls needed to see my patience. When the girl returned, there was another problem. The girls were 62 cents short of cash. I told the clerk to add the 62 cents to my bill. With their eyes wide with amazement, the two adorable girls simultaneously, politely and singsongy said, “Thank you.”

As they walked way, I caught them looking back at me. Evil people are out there despicably promoting and spreading racial hate. If the little girls hear someone trashing all blacks saying, “Black people are….”, perhaps they will remember the black man who was kind to them. Perhaps, I planted a seed and it only cost me 62 cents.

    Great post! I happened to read that yesterday was Random Acts of Kindness Day (it’s down to just one day?) so I believe there was an appointed and annointed timing!

    I love your stories – I love your kindness and heart. It is refreshing in today’s atmosphere to have the privilege of being part of your world. Keep on doing what you’re doing!

    It’s random acts of kindness like that that always make me day. I think those little girls will remember you and talk to you years from now.

    The Holy Spirit was leading you and you obeyed. What a wonderful lesson to those girls! We all need to learn this same lesson and spread it all around. Thanks for sharing your story with us, and the love of CHRIST to those girls. May G-D bless you and continue to use you for HIS glory!
