are you God’s wife?

the familyAuthor and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was  asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the  most caring child.  One of the runners up was this following eye-witness account.   I think it should have won first place, as it shows how we can all be the hands & feet of Jesus every day.


An eye witness account from New  York City, on a cold day in December, some years ago:

A little  boy, about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store on  the roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and  shivering With cold.

A lady  approached the young boy and said, ‘My, but you’re in  such deep thought staring in that window!’

‘I was  asking God to give me a pair of shoes,’ was the boy’s  reply.

The lady took him by the hand,  went into the store, and asked the clerk to get half a  dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could  give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them  to her. She took the little fellow to the  back part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down,  washed his little feet, and dried them with the towel.

By this time, the clerk had returned with the  socks..

Placing a pair upon the boy’s feet, she purchased him a  pair of shoes..

She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him.

She  patted him on the head and said, ‘No doubt, you will be more  comfortable now.’

As she turned to go,  the astonished kid caught her by the hand, and looking up into  her face, with tears

in his eyes, asked  her:

‘Are you God’s  wife?’
