I want to deserve a man like that

Even if God never sends one to me, I pray he make me into a woman who deserves a man like C.S. "Jack" Lewis, a man described vividly in this interview with his stepson.
Jack was a man who was always available, and I think this is the crux of Christianity. .... His message is, "Stop talking about it, stop studying it, just get out there and do Christianity." Jack did it. .... A guy approached Jack on the street one day and asked him if he could spare a few shillings. And Jack immediately dove into his pocket and brought out all his change and handed it over to this beggar. And the chap he was with—I think it was Tolkien—said, "Jack, you shouldn't have given that fellow all that money, he'll just spend it on drink." Jack said, "Well if I had kept it, I would have only spent it on drink."
