Helping You Over The Mountains of Life #1028
Pickup in the Rain
One night, at 11:30 PM, an older African American
woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway
trying to endure a lashing rain storm. Her car had
broken down and she desperately needed a ride.
Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car.
A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of in
those conflict-filled 1960s. The man took her to safety,
helped her get assistance and put her into a taxi cab.
She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his address
and thanked him.
Seven days went by and a knock came on the man's door.
To his surprise,
A giant console color TV was delivered to his home.
A special note was attached.
It read: "Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway
the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes,
but also my spirits.
Then you came along.
Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband's bedside
just before he passed away.
God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others."
Mrs. Nat King Cole
You never know who it is you are helping.
You donít know who they are or what they may be.
You don't know what role you may play in their destiny.
