    Heart Warming Story........

    Heart warming story for the soul!!>

    > One day a woman was walking down the street when she spied a beggar
    > sitting in the corner. The man was elderly, unshaven, and ragged. As
    > he sat there, pedestrians walked by him giving him dirty looks. They
    > clearly wanted nothing to do with him because of who he was -- a
    > dirty, homeless man. But when she saw him, the woman was moved to
    > It was very cold that day and the man had his tattered coat -- more
    > like an old suit coat rather than a warm coat -- wrapped around him.
    > She stopped and looked down. "Sir?" she asked. "Are you all right?"
    > The man slowly looked up. This was a woman clearly accustomed to the
    > finer things of life. Her coat was new. She looked like she had never
    > missed a meal in her life. His first thought was that she wanted to
    > make fun of him, like so many others had done before. "Leave me
    alone," he growled.
    > To his amazement, the woman continued standing. She was smiling -- her
    > even white teeth displayed in dazzling rows. "Are you hungry?" she

    > "No," he answered sarcastically. "I've just come from dining with the
    > president. Now go away."
    > The woman's smile became even broader. Suddenly the man felt a gentle
    > hand under his arm. "What are you doing, lady?" the man asked angrily.

    > "I said to leave me alone."
    > Just then a policeman came up. "Is there any problem, ma'am?" he
    > "No problem here, officer," the woman answered. "I'm just trying to
    > get this man to his feet. Will you help me?"
    > The officer scratched his head. "That's old Jack. He's been a fixture
    > around here for a couple of years. What do you want with him?"
    > "See that cafeteria over there?" she asked. "I'm going to get him
    > something to eat and get him out of the cold for awhile."
    > "Are you crazy, lady?" the homeless man resisted. "I don't want to go
    > in there!" Then he felt strong hands grab his other arm and lift him
    > up. "Let me go, officer. I didn't do anything."
    > "This is a good deal for you, Jack," the officer answered. "Don't blow
    > Finally, and with some difficulty, the woman and the police officer
    > got Jack into the cafeteria and sat him at a table in a remote corner.

    > It was the middle of the morning, so most of the breakfast crowd had
    > already left and the lunch bunch had not yet arrived. The manager
    > strode across the cafeteria and stood by the table. "What's going on
    > here, officer?" he asked. "What is all this. Is this man in trouble?"
    > "This lady brought this man in here to be fed," the policeman
    > answered.
    > "Not in here!" the manager replied angrily. "Having a person like that
    > here is bad for business."
    > Old Jack smiled a toothless grin. "See, lady. I told you so. Now if
    > you'll let me go. I didn't want to come here in the first place."
    > The woman turned to the cafeteria manager and smiled. "Sir, are you
    > familiar with Eddy and Associates, the banking firm down the street?"
    > "Of course I am," the manager answered impatiently. "They hold their
    > weekly meetings in one of my banquet rooms."
    > "And do you make a goodly amount of money providing food at these
    > weekly meetings?"
    > "What business is that of yours?"
    > "I, sir, am Penelope Eddy, president and CEO of the company."
    > "Oh."
    > The woman smiled again. "I thought that might make a difference." She
    > glanced at the cop who was busy stifling a giggle. "Would you like to
    > join us in a cup of coffee and a meal, officer?"
    > "No thanks, ma'am," the officer replied. "I'm on duty."
    > "Then, perhaps, a cup of coffee to go?"
    > "Yes, ma'am. That would be very nice."
    > The cafeteria manager turned on his heel. "I'll get your coffee for
    > you > right away, officer."
    > The officer watched him walk away. "You certainly put him in his
    > place," he said.
    > "That was not my intent. Believe it or not, I have a reason for all
    > She sat down at the table across from her amazed dinner guest. She
    > stared at him intently. "Jack, do you remember me?"
    > Old Jack searched her face with his old, rheumy eyes "I think so -- I
    > mean you do look familiar."
    > "I'm a little older perhaps," she said. "Maybe I've even filled out
    > more than in my younger days when you worked here, and I came through
    > that very door, cold and hungry."
    > "Ma'am?" the officer said questioningly. He couldn't believe that such

    > a magnificently turned out woman could ever have been hungry.
    > "I was just out of college," the woman began. "I had come to the city
    > looking for a job, but I couldn't find anything. Finally I was down to

    > my last few cents and had been kicked out of my apartment. I walked
    > the streets for days. It was February and I was cold and nearly
    > starving. I saw this place and walked in on the off chance that I
    get something to eat."
    > Jack lit up with a smile. "Now I remember," he said. "I was behind the

    > serving counter. You came up and asked me if you could work for
    > something to eat. I said that it was against company policy."
    > "I know," the woman continued. "Then you made me the biggest roast
    > beef sandwich that I had ever seen, gave me a cup of coffee, and told
    > me to go over to a corner table and enjoy it. I was afraid that you
    > would get into trouble. Then, when I looked over, I saw you put the
    > price of my food in the cash register. I knew then that everything
    would be all right."
    > "So you started your own business?" Old Jack said.
    > "I got a job that very afternoon. I worked my way up. Eventually I
    > started my own business that, with the help of God, prospered." She
    > opened her purse and pulled out a business card. "When you are
    > finished here, I want you to pay a visit to a Mr. Lyons. He's the
    > personnel director of my company. I'll go talk to him now and I'm
    > certain he'll find something for you to do around the office." She
    > smiled. "I think he might even find the funds to give you a little
    > advance so that you can buy some clothes and get a place to live until

    > you get on your feet. And if you ever need anything, my door is always
    opened to you."
    > There were tears in the old man's eyes. "How can I ever thank you," he
    > "Don't thank me," the woman answered. "To God goes the glory. Thank
    him.> He led me to you."
    > Outside the cafeteria, the officer and the woman paused at the
    entrance before going their separate ways. "Thank you for all your help, officer," she
    > said.
    > "On the contrary, Ms. Eddy," he answered. "Thank you. I saw a miracle
    > today, something that I will never forget. And... And thank you for
    the coffee."
    > She frowned. "I forgot to ask you whether you used cr �me or sugar.
    > That's black."
    > The officer looked at the steaming cup of coffee in his hand. "Yes, I
    > do take cr� me and sugar -- perhaps more sugar than is good for me." He
    > patted his ample stomach.
    > "I'm sorry," she said.
    > "I don't need it now," he replied smiling. "I've got the feeling that
    > this coffee you bought me is going to taste as sweet as sugar."
    > If you have missed knowing me, you have missed nothing.
    > If you have missed some of my emails, you have missed a laugh.
    > But, if you have missed knowing GOD, you
    > have missed everything in the world.
    God is love.
