Kindness of stranger

July 26, 2010 7:01am CST
While I was travelling to my father's place for some vacation, I was in short of money at that time. I was needed somebody would help me and so I began to find out some people from outside the bus station. One old man asked me, " Where will you go? " I said nothing. He again asked me " Are you short of of money? " I definitely said "yes". He bought me the ticket and also given me some food by spending his own pocket money. I was lucky to have this kindness from such person who was stranger to me. Praise the Lord!

I think a time comes when you meet a person for sometime and he/she will leave an impression that you start wondering, was it for real or was it GOD? I remember it was 2 am late. Everyone was sleeping in the hostel and I was walking near the corridor of my hostel. Our hostel was being renovated so they had left most of the place unsecured. I was walking through such place and I slipped and fell down. My leg got tangled on the stairs and I was hanging upside down. That point I even didn't scream. My leg was hurting a lot and then I saw a hand reaching for me. I grabbed and got away from the disaster. I thank him and he said to be careful and walked. I went to my room and drank water. After a while I wondered who on earth was this guy who helped me because I know all the people living in the hostel perfectly. He was wearing a vest and a track pant. I told my room mate about it. Strangely this guy was never a member of the hostel and out hostel gate would be locked. I thought that maybe he is one of those guy doing renovation but the next day I didn't find him. I never saw that guy from that day. I would for the next two days at same time walk along that corridor but could not find him. I don't know, but it left me with no option but to believe that he wasn't oe among us.

Why did you walked alone when everybody was asleep? You are telling that guy was not a member of the hostel but he may resides somewhere near the hostel and if it is not, then he must be your guardian angel.
