I really liked the story you posted. I had something like this happen to me once. I had arrived a few minutes late for work at the Sears store I worked at. (I had witnessed an accident and had waited for the police to arrive.) When I got to work, I noticed an elderly gentleman standing in the middle of our sporting goods department looking rather lost. I stopped by him and asked him if I could help him. He said he needed to find "sporting goods". Rather than point out the obvious, I asked him if there was something in particular he was looking for. He told me he was there to pick up a tv. I walked him to our package pick-up kiosk and helped him figure out the computer system. I pointed out the young man who would be bringing out his TV and turned to walk away. The elderly man called out after me, "Miss". I stopped and turned around. For a moment, it was like someone had turned on a lightswitch. The elderly man looked like he had perfect clarity in that moment. He said to me, "Miss, good things are coming." I smiled and told him, "Sir, good things are always coming." He replied, "No, good things are coming soon." Then it was as though the light went dim again. He looked as lost as he had before. I smiled and walked away. His words stuck in my head though, so I asked a friend of mine about it. She said to pray for him because he had given me a message.
Well, I did that. I still do it, everytime I think about those words that he said to me, and everytime I look around at all of the good things that have happened in my life since then. It's amazing how something so simple, just a few words, can completely change a life.
