Gutsy granny, 92, makes robber cry

A simple trip to the grocery store turned into a matter of life and death for a 92-year-old Dyersburg, Tennessee, woman. Pauline Jacobi was leaving Wal-Mart when a strange man got in the car with her. The man told Pauline to give him her money. Pauline found the strength to stand her ground."I told him no," Pauline said, "I'm not going to give you my money."The man threatened to kill, Pauline but she wouldn't give in. "I said, 'As soon as you kill me, I'll go to Heaven and you'll go to Hell.' I said, 'Jesus is in this car, and He goes with me everywhere I go.'"
That's when something miraculous happened. "He just looked around, and tears began coming to his eyes," Pauline remembers. Jacobi ministered to the man for 10 minutes and ended up giving him ten dollars, but she also gave him a warning. "I told him, 'Don't you go spend it on whiskey either,'" says Pauline with a laugh. After their fateful meeting, the man took the money and went on his way, but not before kissing Pauline on the cheek.
