PostSubject: SPECIAL GROCERY LIST   Thu May 01 2008, 03:15

Louise Redden, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her
face, walked into a grocery store.

She approached the owner of the store in a most
humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries.

She softly explained that her husband was very ill
and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food.

John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and
requested that she leave his store at once.

Visualizing the family needs, she said: "Please,
sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can."

John told her he could not give her credit, since
she did not have a charge account at his store.

Standing beside the counter was a customer who
overheard the conversation between the two. The
customer walked forward and told the grocer that he
would stand good for whatever she needed for her family.

The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, "Do you
have a grocery list?"

Louise replied, "Yes sir." "O.K" he said, "put your
grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery
list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries."

Louise, hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then
she reached into her purse and took out a piece of
paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid
the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.

The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed
amazement when the scales went down and stayed down.

The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to
the customer and said begrudgingly, "I can't believe it."

The customer smiled and the grocer started putting
the groceries on the other side of the scales. The
scale did not balance so he continued to put more
and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more.

The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he
grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and
looked at it with greater amazement.

It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said:

"Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this
in your hands."

The grocer gave her the groceries that he had
gathered and stood in stunned silence.

Louise thanked him and left the store.
The other customer handed a fifty-dollar bill to the

grocer and said;

"It was worth every penny of it. Only God Knows how
much a prayer weighs."
