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.
