George's Two-Wheeled Best Friend

Because they are Christians, they forgive the thief

By Sheila Johnson

To the thief who stole my husband's beloved little scooter:

Sometime either late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning hours someone took it upon themselves to steal my husband's beloved little scooter right in front of our home.

You are brave to steal right out from underneath our noses.

You had no idea how much that little scooter meant to George. He had wanted one for over a year now and I refused for him to buy one. I made him save his change and any extra money we had at the end of the month until he had enough to buy it.

I was not any too happy he bought the little blue and white scooter, but when I saw just how much he loved toddling along in the sun to visit his friends and doing errands for me on it, I came to love this little scooter also.

So every night he would park it at our front door and I always tried to park the car in front of it.

Every morning he would clean it off and begin his day.

We cannot be mad at the thief. We have to forgive, since we are Christians.

And all we can do is Pray for you the most important thing is your soul.

I Pray you will have a personal relationship with the Lord. And may God keep you safe, warm, clothed, a roof over your head and food, but most of all Love you.

With that being said I also want to thank the Columbia Police Department for efforts in trying to recover the scooter. They even made a follow up call to our home to let us know they were still looking for it.

So whoever you are please consider the church doors.

- George and Sheila Johnson
