It is funny how God can put a situation in your life literally an hour before the Ten for Him money was given to us to give away.
Here is what happened before I came home from work. One of my factory employees was sitting on the landscape waiting for a ride. She is about 65 years old and is a lead in my dept. We recently hired a new manager for her and I was told she was concerned for her employment. So I took the opportunity to sit on the rocks and visit with her. My intentions were to make sure she knew we valued her and her job was fine. When I greeted her and asked how she was doing…..the answer was,” I am tired.” She has been working 70 hours/week for me for several weeks. What I didn’t expect to hear was that she was waiting for her teenage grand kids to give her a ride to college so she could TEACH an organic chemistry class. She let me know she had to teach this class because she needed a new septic system and the cost was $10k. Shocked that this woman was a retired college professor and working for me I nearly broke down. The story gets better. The next day I found out she also adopted her two teenage grandchildren from and has been raising them….hence the reason she works so hard. I couldn’t wait to run home and share with my wife what I now knew. She agreed, that this woman was who she was supposed to give her Ten for Him money to.
So my wife came to my work and I introduced her to this remarkable woman. They had a tear fest. She of course did not want to take the $100 but my wife assured her that she gives to others all the time and it was time for her to be on the receiving end. We will be praying for her everyday.
Needless to say, some people can be simply amazing and you would never know it.
