Saturday, March 7, 2009
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay hisway through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.

He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water.
She thought he looked hungry so brought him a largeglass of milk He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?""You don't owe me anything," she replied "Mother has taught us never toaccept payment for a kindness."He said... "Then I thank you from my heart."As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt; stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Years later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctorswere baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her raredisease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation.

When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filledhis eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to herroom. Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultationroom determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gavespecial attention to the case.After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested thebusiness office to pass the final bill to him for approval.

He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sentto her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay forit all. Finally, she looked, and something caught her attention on the side as she read thesewords....."Paid in full with one glass of milk." (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: "Thank You,GOD, that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and hands."
