The elderly lady in line with me at the grocery store was not someone of means, as her dress was old, shoes worn out, and her long grey hair matted. She had 3 small cans of cat food in her hand. The lines were long, even in the express, so we had a conversation. (She really did look similar to the google image)
She told me her name was Kathy and she had one cat that was very old. We shared stories of cats and dogs and previous pets and I saw such a loneliness in her blue eyes, yet she seems so please to be having this chat with me. I was glad the line was long, as we talked for quite some time.
She was behind me, but I asked her to go in front since she had little to buy. She smiled and put the cans of cat foot on the counter. I smiled at the Cashier and said I would like to pay for her cat food. She said "Oh no, that's not necessary." To which I replied, "I know that, but I really need to do a "Good Deed" today as the Lord has bless my life with our conversation." She smiled, and the clerk put her cat food in the bag, handed it to her, and she thanked me and walked away.
When I finished paying and walked to the door to leave, a very nicely dressed attractive, woman stopped my cart, and said "I work for corporate Von's and I just saw what you did for one of our customers. That was a very sweet and precious thing you did, thank you". Feeling a little embarrassed, I said "Everyone needs a "Good Deed" once in a while".
I knew God was watching.... I was doing it for Him...but how nice that one of Von's managers saw Christ in Action. And that's what a good deed is....Christ in Action in us!
Have a wonderful weekend. We're off to visit our kids for the weekend.
