Pennies from Heaven

2006-07-13 22:54

  There was once a little girl who was all alone in the world. Her father and mother were both dead. And she was so poor that she no longer had a room to live in. she also had no bed to sleep in. all she possessed were the clothes she was wearing. And she had nothing more to eat than a small piece of bread that someone had given her.

  The little girl was forsaken by all the world but hoped that God would find a way to help her. And so she left her home. She hadn't walked very far when she saw an old man sitting by the wayside. “Oh, dear child, give me something to eat. I'm so hungry,” he said to her. And the girl, without hesitation, gave him her piece of bread. When she had gone a little further and the church spire of her village could no longer be seen, she came upon a small child. He only had a shirt on and begged, “Could you give me something to cover my head? I'm so terribly cold.” The girl took pity on the child. She took off her bonnet and gave it to him.

  After a little while she saw another child by the woods. She only wore a vest and was trembling with cold. She begged, “Dear girl, I'm so terribly cold without a skirt. Haven't you a little skirt for me?” the girl herself only had her vest and skirt. But she did not hesitate and took her skirt off. She gave it to the freezing child and walked on.

  Meanwhile it had become evening. It was dark in the woods. Then another child came towards her and asked, “I'm so cold, haven't you a vest for me?”

  The little girl thought, it's dark here in the wood. Nobody will see me. It won't matter if I have no clothes. And she took off her vest, too, and handed it to the child.

  As the girl stood there without any clothes, the stars started fall down from the sky. They were all hard, shining pennies. And although she had just given away her vest, she realized she had new one on. It was made out of the most delicate fabric and much nicer than her own. She held out the vest with both hands and collected as many of the pennies as she could. From then on she was rich and lived without any worries at all.
