An Act of Kindness

Dear Ladies,

I hope that all is going well for you and yours.

Earlier this evening, we had an extremely unpleasant experience at a strip mall that left me upset.  

A stranger who witnessed the incident, a man who had been begging nearby, brought me a rose from one of the rose bushes at the place where the incident happened and said a few supportive words as he gave me the rose.

His act of kindness touched my heart.  I don't know why he was begging or what led to his being down-and-out.  His act of kindness, however, showed me that his heart is good.  

I am praying for him, for his needs and his righteous intentions tonight and I ask you to join me.

The last few years have taught me that it's a tough, lonely world, and people who I never thought would be impoverished and homeless have become so.

Agape always,

I have prayed for God's blessings on that homeless man, and I'm praying for you too today, Cynthia. I hope you and your family are safe and well.

Dear Cynthia,
I’m so sorry about your upsetting experience, but hope you’re feeling better today.

What a lovely man to show such kindness in spite of his own grave situation, and I too will pray for him and others in that unfortunate position. There are far too many people suffering these days, and even though I know there have always been people in desperate circumstances, that number seems to be growing more and more.

May God Bless and keep him, you (and your family), safe from all harm.

Dear Laura,

I appreciate, as always, your prayers and good thoughts. Thank you. It means so much that you take time out of your busy life to extend care to others.

God bless you.

Agape always,

Dear Christine,

Every time I recall the man's act of kindness or see the rose where I have preserved it, I am moved to tears.

These past two months, I have been shocked at the hidden homeless whom I have observed, especially families who are trying to keep up appearances but who are, in fact, without a regular address and not by choice.

Thank you, as well, for your prayers and good thoughts. Bless you.

Agape always,
