A Random Deed of Mercy

'Determination to Help Others'

Deeds of mercy are contagious. At a grocery store, I had a carriage full of vegetables and canned goods to feed about three dozen people. In the checkout line, a woman ahead of me looked quizzically at all the multiple items. I explained that the food was for a fundraiser to help provide Easter dinners to needy local families. The lady immediately looked in her wallet to make a donation. She said she was sorry, but the last of her money went toward her own groceries. She then realized that she had several of the store's discount coins, which she gave to me. They were worth several dollars off my total bill, and they helped the proceeds by that much. May God bless this woman for her determination to help others.
