It was an off-handed conversation with a fellow teacher about my summer plans plan to help at the Children’s Home. Without hesitation, Melissa offered up foot braces her daughter had outgrown; she wasn’t sure what to do with them. I had been contemplating how to meet communication needs…physical needs hadn’t crossed my mind…but when God opens a door with a gift, you accept it and deliver it.
Ernie’s new ‘kicks’ allowed his palsied feet to set flat on the floor. Maria stood with some assistance, then said, “With these shoes, I’ll be able to walk.”
Delivering gifts can bring a girl to tears.
