ENDING the WEEK

WOW!  What an ending to this week, I received food supplies today. My dear business partner Phil, spent a sizable amount to get food for the hungry that should last about 3 weeks. I have been so moved by the generosity of our community that I sent President Obama, an email describing the project to feed the hungry.

I had to pick up my prescription from Walgreens and as I was about to enter a man pushing a cart gave me a timid smile. It took me a second to recall his face then he spoke , “hi I saw you on Market Street the other day.” “Yes, I said would you like water or a sandwich?” “I’ll take a sandwich , have water already” he said. Encouraging him to drink , he assured me he was because of a sinus problem. Before I realized it I said, ” See you later sweetie”.

The next person was a man who seemed somewhat mentally challenge but in good spirits also well-kept. He greeted me so I offered him food and water which he accepted . Now both thanked me with a strong GOD Bless You . I am learning how to stay humble when this blessing is bestowed upon me. I thank them from my heart now and not just give it word service. They have changed me so much in receiving them and looking beyond their outer appearance.

I came across the couple which they greeted me like an old friend , letting me know they were ok (their word) for now as far as for food. Thanking me any way for checking on them. I asked several people who were on my path that graciously said they were alright and thank me for doing this for the homeless.

There were several that I misjudged if they were in need of food. Not being put off by my inquiry they kindly declined but thanked me anyway. I then came across a young man carry everything he owned on his back and in a rolling carry case, accepted the food and water happily. The last young man was not very pleasant initially but did listened and mumble something, I handed him te food as he proceeded to walk away and had to call after him to take his water, which he did clearly said thank you. As I walked away I wondered what that was all about as he could speak and clearly.

Well, it is the weekend and I need to regroup with small supplies so I will not pass out food packs Saturday or Sunday.

Blessings All
