One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door

to door to pay his way 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 large glass 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 to accept pay 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 doctors were baffled. They finally sent her

to the big city, where they called in specialists to

study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called

in for the consultation. When he heard the name of

the town she came from, a strange light filled his

eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of

the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor's gown

he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He

went back to the consultation room determined to do

his best to save her life. From that day he gave

special attention to the case. After a long struggle,

the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business

office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He

looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and

the bill was sent to her room.

She feared to open it, for she was sure it would

take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally

she looked, and something caught her attention on the

side of the bill. She read these words..... "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."

Now you have two choices. You can send this page on

and spread a positive message. or ignore it and

pretend it never touched your heart. Think, Believe,

Dream, and Dare
