A couple of weeks ago I share this post about our precious new friend Dora who had been coming over every Monday to teach our family Spanish. Several times I had tried to pay Dora for tutoring us- but she always refused saying it was her way of helping.In the post I also mentioned that Dora didn't have a computer. She had been working towards saving for one for her son to do his school work on, and so she could follow along on my blog once we move. They really needed a lap top due to the fact that they didn't have internet in their home- and a lap top would be portable so they could go to the local Subway for internet connection.
I think the thing I love most about being a Christ follower is watching God work through His people... Through those who know first hand that it is 'more blessed to give than to receive'. I believe that is the secret to happiness~doing for, giving to and loving others. Doing what we can to make others lives just a little bit better. Giving out of what the Lord has blessed us with. Loving those the Lord puts in our path. And sometimes, even going out of our way to find them.
And one family did exactly that. Within just a couple of hours of that post going up I received an email from them saying they wanted to send Dora a brand new Dell computer- with one stipulation- God gets all the glory. This family chose out of the goodness of their hearts, without receiving any credit, without ever getting anything in return- to bless someone else. Now that is a picture of the gospel in action.
When we took the computer over to Dora's house I explained to her what had happened. She told me between her tears how her and her son had been praying for this and how she was so grateful to God for answering her prayers. I don't know why God allowed me the privilege of being the go between- between the giver and the receiver on this one- but one thing I do know is, it forever changed me.
A special thank you to the precious "R" family. I know because of your journey you realize how precious life truly is. May God bless you as abundantly as you have blessed so many others.
