I met a wonderful man, today. As my children and I were putting groceries in our cart at Costco, a man came up to me and said, "Do you mind if I ask you a question? Are all of these children yours?" I replied, "Yes and we have one more who isn't here."
The man surprised me by saying, "That is wonderful! I am the father of twelve!"
He then asked, "Can I ask you another question? Are you Christian?"
I replied, "Yes."
He said, "What kind?"
I answered, "Catholic."
He commented that there are no longer a lot of Catholics with large families. I agreed with the man and shared, "We pray that God continues to bless us with children."
The man then turned to my children and said, "You should always be thankful to your parents for being open to life. Be sure you help them."
As I was standing in line to pay for my groceries, this same wonderful man came up to us and placed a box with two gallons of milk on the conveyor belt and gave me five dollars to pay for it. I thanked him and he responded, "Consider this a gift from Jesus."
As I left Costco, the lady who checks the receipt asked me, "Did a man find you and give you some milk?"
Thank you, God! Only you could have known that I was in need of encouragement. Please bless this man for his kindness.
