This time of year, scanning blogs and social networks can yield more GREAT material for this segment than anything I could possibly come up with. Today is a prime example…
I’m thankful today for good neighbors. I’ve never met one like ours. My car broke down last spring.
All summer, we tried to get it fixed but after 300k miles and two accidents, it gave up.
James had no way to work, so our neighbor insisted we use his spare van
, which he used to haul supplies or as a ‘loaner’ for family, until we could save the down payment on a replacement.
With trying to catch up our mortgage and medical bills, it took six months. The day we picked up the car, James took the van keys to our neighbor and offered to pay whatever we could for using his van so very long (we had of course paid for all the gas and maintenance).
The neighbor accepted only our thanks, he refused to take a dime.
You want to see some Christian charity? Yeah, his name’s Tom, he’s next door.
And that’s something you can hang your hat on.
