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!

          • Awe… thank you so much Gracie! I truly appreciate your support… and your friendship! And I look forward to us meeting one day with our children. Sounds like fun. Maybe we can take in a game with our kids this fall. Hope to see you soon!! And thanks again!

          • I would love to meet you this fall! I plan on going to visit him in late September or October. Which weekend would work for you? I just penned a review for you on Amazon.com regarding your stellar novel, The Walking Wounded. I hope the Lord is blessing you abundantly. You have such a sweet and loving spirit. I look forward to meeting you soon! Let me know if you would like my cell phone number.

          • Awe!!! Thank you so much for the review!! I was trying to get more reviews in to boost up the ratings. You are a blessing!!!
            Also, I would love to plan something with you. Email me if you don’t mind and we can plan there so it will not be public on the internet. God bless you, my sister!!

          • I will give you the email I use for most of my business. THAT email is jeanine.gray@aol.com. Please email me as to when you want to meet up in Ruston. Can’t wait to meet you! I am sorry but I don’t usually check the email associated with my blog. I will do that when I have my book published but I just don’t have the time to check all of my email accounts on a daily basis so I primarily check the one associated with my legal name. Thanks! Good bless you too! Sweet sister in Christ!

          • Thanks!! I will email you. Been really busy lately. Hope you saw my announcement… A New Generation Has Arrived!!!

          • Goodness, I had no idea you were on the path of being a Grandmother. You are going to be the best! I imagine you are swamped with emotion and all grandma activities…Please let me know when it would suit and I will try to arrange my schedule around yours. Congratulations on the blessing of another child! So excited for you! Love you!!!

          • Thanks Gracie! Yes, we are all so excited and super busy. I will check with my daughter and try to figure out a weekend. Hope to see you soon.

Tell me what you're thinking....
