Shelly, thank you so much for taking your time and being so complete in your answer to the question. It is so true and so real what you have wrote and so appreciated by all who read this post. People can tell when someone is real or a phony. The Lord knows your heart and knows better than anyone whether or not you are for real with Him and knows the best way to transform you more and more into His image and likeness and will never leave us or forsake us. He knows your heart and how much you love and need Him and how much you depend on His love for you.

That is so precious. I pray abundant blessings upon that woman and her family. God said He'd bless those who bless us and curse those who curse us. She is due enormous blessing for giving out of her own need. Thank you for sharing that wonderful testimony with us!

A young mother who doesn't even have enough money to turn on the heat yet (and it has been cold around here.)

She knows my little one wears mostly hand me downs and she offered me some of her little ones clothes.

This young mother is surely a child of God. Peace and love and kindness just flowed from her. I felt like I was really being loved by the Lord.

I met her only the once and have not seen her since. But I still feel her love just thinking about her.

Yatmama that's a compliment indeed. She would have loved to meet you and others - you learn a lot from others that cross your path. She gave up her car when she got into her 60's because she felt if she didn't she would die sooner because of lack of exercise.

She was always meeting people while traveling by bus or taking walks, She was funny.

She did do some crazy things when she missed her bus while traveling from afar. She stopped this lady at the train station and told her that she missed her bus and there wasn't one coming till tomorrow morning and she had to get home. She offered them $20 bucks and they drove her home. emoticon

She was too much but we would laugh hysterical about it. Oh my was she something else. LOL

I said Jesus had and is having the greatest impact on my life because my whole entire life has been impacted by nothing but evil forces and negative happenings and the best and most postive impact in my life other than Jesus is Sparkpeople.

I would have to say my oldest brother and his wife, the first born again Christians in our family. They led me to salvation and I owe them such a debt of gratitude. I was 17 at the time. Next would be my youth pastor back then, who taught me to get OUT of the church and INTO the streets to bring the Good News to those the rest of the world deems unlovely and unlovable. I thank God for that kind of foundation.

DefiantVega, I would so love to have met your grandmother!!

My teacher, Miss Reese, in highschool. She was such a wonderful teacher. She only taught there two years and it was her first teaching assignment. She tried to explain to me about being a Christian but I didn't understand what she was saying. We corresponded for several years. However, when I came to know this Jesus whom she had tried to share with me, I couldn't wait to let her know.
By then I didn't have her address but through some old letters found the town her Mom lived in. In faith, I sent it to the town praying somehow she would receive it. Her mom had died but the postmaster knew her brother who lived in same state. The letter went to him and then on to her, she lived in Philidelphia, PA. by then.
She sent me a Bible. I never saw her again but we did correspond over the years. After many years of ill health she died.
I will never forget her nor the first miracle the Lord did for me when I sent that letter in faith.
I knew He heard and answered prayers that would sound impossible to others.

Aside from the walk of Jesus on how he had compassion and was sin free.

I would say my Grandmother that passed away.

She came here as an immigrant with 2 kids later had 2 more and took care of 4 grandchildren alone as a single mother. Some of her brothers and sisters would send there kids and take advantage of her because they saw she was successful.

She Managed to open several business throughout her lifetime. She was left to manage a Restaurant at the age of 16 because owner was out of town on business.

This sparked a drive in her to open her first restaurant. She had quite a few restaurants which were predominately her choice of business.

She Also opened up a Bridal Shop, an Upholstery Shop and she also had a Food Truck.

I remember working in one of her restaurants when I was 13. I use to walk to the market and pick up groceries for her and walk the cart to her restaurant which was like 5 blocks away. Another funny thing is she would send me to the bank which was 2 blocks away to make deposits. She would place thousands of dollars in the pouch they would give you then she would put it in a brown paper bag so they won't notice what it was.

I would stand in line for the teller and I would get stares but no one had a clue. This was her way of preventing herself from getting robbed because they would suspect and kid holding the money. LOL

She was a remarkable woman. emoticon

the one who has had the most and heaviest impact on me and my life is JESUS, JESUS and once more JESUS, He is the only one that I have allowed to get close to me to change me because I trust Him because He loves me so much because He went to the cross for me. I took and take the word of God personally for me.
