Paid In Full-A great story !
 
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found 
he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next 
house. 
However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked 
for a drink of water.
  
She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then 
asked, "How much do I owe you?" 
  
"You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness." 
   
He said..... "Then I thank you from my heart." As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt 
stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up 
and quit.
  
Year's later that young woman became critically ill.
The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in
specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he 
heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and 
went down the hall of the hospital to her room.
  
Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to 
the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special 
attention to the case.
  
After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final 
bill to him for approval.
  
He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to 
open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and 
something caught her attention on the side of the bill.
 
She read these words.....
"Paid in full with one glass of milk" 
 
Dr. Howard Kelly.
Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed:
"Thank You, God, that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and hands."
