I am one of those people who attend Church regular and give to different charities but there is still a struggle to keep check on toting around a cold heart. Seeing a homeless man on our way to Starbucks this morning was one such incident.
It is cold for here and I could only see the person from a distance...My first thoughts were why was this person sitting there with a sign, this is a nice area, not downtown!
We went inside and had our usual morning specialties, one being hot oatmeal with nuts and fruit and as I looked at that cup of hot oatmeal a thought popped into my mind......"we need to buy that person some hot oatmeal" well of course I tried to cast it aside but to no avail so I finally mentioned it to my hubby. Well, I am really blessed because I have one of those hubbies who is always ready to give so just before leaving he went up and bought the oatmeal to go as well as a very large cup of hot coffee.
You may think that we did something really special for this young man with only a sweatshirt to keep him warm, but in truth....he did something really special for me.....He helped put a crack in an old cold heart and all for just a Starbucks oatmeal...........................
