My favorite graduation gift ...
( and a little $$ )
I had ordered a copy of my favorite devotional at the book store.
the call came, it was in.
They would hold it until Monday.
Monday, late in the day, I went to the shelf where devotional books are stocked and found a copy
then I went up to the counter and told them that they should have a copy on hold for me.
Sure enough, the clerk pulled out a copy on hold for me.
" Why is this special to you " she asked , while processing my order
"It is the devotional book I have been giving to graduates for many years. It is God's Word . If you were my friend and graduating, I would give you a copy." I told her.
"Well, that is where I am " she replied
" Will you read it?" I said, holding out a copy to her
" Are you serious ?" She asked
" Will you read it? I replied.
I gave her a copy and I left the store
I am sure she said thank you, I just don't remember what happened after that.
I was so amazed and happy that she took the book.
All the way to my car and beyond, I was smiling and thanking the Lord and wishing I had asked her for her name, but
The Lord knows her name.
and He loves her.
