A lady stole my wallet,
one day in the store.
but they caught up with the lady,
before she got out the door.
They saw it all on the monitor,
every move she made,
so I was very blessed that,
my wallet and all was saved.
I’m laughing as I’m writing this,
because It’s kind of funny,
but I don’t think I'd be laughing,
if she had taken all my money.
I’m laughing because when they,
caught her, after what she’d done,
I was feeling sorry for her,
not realizing I was the one.
I told them not to arrest her,
I told them to let her go,
but I hope it scared her enough,
so that next time she will know.
God help that lady, save her soul from sin,
Change her heart so that she,
will not do this again.
Poor lady probably on drugs,
a victim of these days.
Take away this terrible habit,
wash it all away.
H S. I. By Charlotte B. Williams

A true story, so glad I prayed before I went out that day,
things can happen so suddenly.
