Priscilla's Friends

New York City: It's a cold day in December. A little boy about 10-year-old
was standing before a shoe store on Broadway, barefooted, peering through
the window, and shivering with cold. A lady approached the boy and said,
"My little fellow, why are you looking so earnestly in that window?" 

"I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes," was the boy's reply. 

The lady took him by the hand and went into the store, and asked the clerk
to get a half dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could
give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her. She
took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her
gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with a towel. 

By this time the clerk had returned with the socks. Placing a pair upon
the boy's feet, she then purchased him a pair of shoes, and tying up the
remaining pairs of socks, gave them to him. She patted him on the head and
said, "No doubt, my little fellow, you feel more comfortable now?" 

As she turned to go, the astonished lad caught her by the hand, and
looking up in her face, with tears in his eyes, answered the question with
these words: "Are you God's wife?"
