HOMELESS

I met her at a Starbucks. It wasn’t the one I usually go to for my morning cup of pep. She came up to me after I got my coffee and spoke blessings on me.

She didn’t say that she was homeless but she said she was in a situation and that she lived in the woods. She didn’t ask for money or food but prayed over me.

So I started thinking…

Then I decided that I had enough Brisket that I bought on sale,I could share with her. So I started bringing her a packed lunch. I had also shared with my son, some friends and my boyfriend so that Brisket went a long ways.

The other day I had dropped off another gallon plastic sack with a brisket sandwich, some chips and some fruit. She, of course, blessed me.

Then I went and did a couple of appointments and went to Jason’s deli for lunch.

I passed by a man who was talking to a girl and I was smiling because I was thinking of this wonderful woman that I had been feeding. The man stopped me and said “You have a very kind face and a very kind smile.”

He said he heard from God and then he said I was very sweet.

I just thought it was kind of special how God spoke gratitiude through a complete stranger for a kind act I had done for another stranger.

Then today I read Proverbs 3:27-28 and it was the frosting on the cake. “Never walk away from someone who deserves help; your hand is God’s hand for that person. Never tell your neighbors to wait until tomorrow if you can help them now.”

      • Awe Gracie Lynne. Thank you. I would love to meet you. We will have to plan it one weekend. Maybe meet up with our kids… 🙂

        • I would love to do that! Let me know when you can get away. I will try to arrange my schedule. Hopefully by that time I will have got my book published and I can give you a copy of it.

          • I have finished yours and when I finished it I also wrote a promotion for it.It was a wonderful story and although you wrote about abuse your forgiving and loving spirit was still so evident in each and every word. I am hoping and praying that the blessings that God bestows on you and me can be used in ministry to help other women who are abused and/or single mothers. I do believe that He has great prospects ahead for both of us. Love you!

          • Thank you so much!! I remember now reading it but just could not reblog it from your site. I really appreciate your support and look forward to reading your story. I was also wondering if you could do me a favor and write a review on Amazon.com. I was trying to get the numbers up and do not remember seeing yours on Amazon… or maybe it was under a different name. Some people just put initials and I don’t know who they are. Thanks again. Hope to see you soon. We may be able to meet half way one day. All in God’s timing!

          • I will try to write a review for your book today if possible on Amazon.com. I intend to travel to Ruston once my son is settled in for the next year of college. God is so good. He was so worried that he would not find a place to live in Ruston because he is doing an internship in another town in Louisiana and did not have time to go look himself. Every time I prayed about this issue I received the peace of God and last week he said he found an apartment for a reasonable price. My son and a friend of his are planning on rooming together. Maybe we can arrange a trip where we both check on our children but also meet to fellowship in the Lord. I just looked at your blog again today and I must say it is beautiful and inspiring! Be Blessed my dear friend. I love you so!
