A Glass Of Milk

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.

Year's 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."
