We Give thanks for our Christian Brothers

The Story below reminded me once again that as Christian woman we are very blessed to have Men who are Spirit filled Brothers and our friends in The Lord and like our Husbands when empowered by The Holy Spirit, they seek to put us first and honour us as the weaker vessel and to support and encourage us and like Jesus our Spiritual Husband, they consider us a Treasure and a gift from God. They Love us sacrificially with His purity, compassion and understanding and are willing to provide support as well as to be strong Leaders under His Authority and Teaching.

As their Spiritual Sisters let’s respect their role of Leadership and be their Helpmate as we were created to be, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, to help when needed to support, comfort, to encourage and build up and to share our heart focus with them, how very blessed we are and what a High calling we have in our God given role.

The Story below once again touched my heart and reminded me that Men can be in their strength also very gentle and caring.

Apples for the Blind

Apples on table

A few years ago a group of salesmen went to a Regional Sales Convention in Chicago. They had assured their wives that they would be home in plenty of time for Friday night’s dinner.

In their rush, with tickets and briefcases, one of these Salesmen inadvertently kicked over a table, which held a display of apples. Apples flew everywhere. Without stopping or looking back, they all managed to reach the plane in time for their nearly missed boarding.

All but one! He paused, took a deep breath, got in touch with his feelings, and experienced a twinge of compassion for the girl whose apple stand had been overturned.

He told his buddies to go on without him, waved good-bye, told one of them to call his Wife when they arrived at their home destination and explain his taking a later flight. Then he returned to the terminal where the apples were all over the terminal floor.

He was so glad he did. The 16-year-old girl was totally blind! She was softly crying, tears running down her cheeks in frustration, and at the same time helplessly groping for her spilled produce as the crowd swirled about her, no one stopping and no one to care for her plight.

The Salesman knelt on the floor with her, gathered up the apples, put them back on the table and helped organize her display. As he did this, he noticed that many of them had become battered and bruised; these he set aside in another basket.

When he had finished, he pulled out his wallet and said to the girl, “Here, please take this $40 for the damage we did. Are you okay? “She nodded through her tears. He continued on with, “I hope we didn’t spoil your day too badly.”

As the salesman started to walk away, the bewildered blind girl called out to him, “Mister…” He paused and turned to look back into those blind eyes. She continued, “Are you Jesus?”

Reflecting Jesus 1

Sisters let us never stop giving thanks for our Husbands and our Brothers in The Lord and those men who are in Authority in the Church and let us always Love and uphold all of them as if they were Jesus Christ Himself.

    What a beautiful story, thanks for letting me share it with you.


  2. God’s love shines in every generous, giving brother and sister. We are facing a time of grief and fear but it is during these events that heroes and angels are born. Have a blessed day my friend.


    • Dear Island Traveler, our thoughts and prayers are with all of you and I also believe God will lift you all up as you Trust in Him, we don’t carry the burden alone, do we and what ever happens God brings good out of it. Thank you for visiting.

      Christian Love – Anne

    How the moral of the story of the appleseller is such, that it propels us to seek to be Jesus to someone each day where possible. That man felt a conviction in his heart that would not let him rest until he had tried to right the wrong. How it that sometimes we try to ignore the spirits pleading in our lives, and so are not at peace. Thanks Anne for the gentle reminder to listen more closely to the Spirit of God in us.



    • Hi Love, when The Holy Spirit indwells us we don’t have to make ourselves reach out to others in sacrifical Love, we want to, it’s our heartbeat. Sacrificial Love comes from God not ourselves but as you said, we need to submit to His will and not seek to promote our own wordly agenda, our flesh must be put to death.

      Christian Love Always dear – Anne
