Well, I did that today,
I not only felt stupid,
I think I looked stupid,
maybe I was supposed to do just that.
God knows how to humble the proud,
He also helps us to achieve a greater degree of
even if what we had was small,
God has a marvelous sense of humor.
I had just finished my prayer time at
It was supper time,
and I needed to stop at the grocery store
for a few items.
When I drove into the parking lot, trying to find a place to park, I saw a young black man standing by the door, speaking to a woman. He wore a black doo rag on his head.
As I walked by the couple, I felt my rosary in my pocket and an inner urge to give him the rosary.
I was like, what?
The rosary was pink. He looked tough.
As I walked through the store, I saw he and his companion in every row.
They weren't following me, it was just coincidence.
Finally, I turned a corner, and the young man was there alone.
I said, "You're going to think this is really weird, but I think I'm supposed to give this to you."
Of course, he was shocked. He smiled.
"It's a rosary," I said.
He smiled. "You're giving this to me?"
"Yes," I replied.
He looked at me, holding the rosary in his hand,
still having a shocked expression on his face he said,
"God bless you."
I returned the blessing to him.
By this time, the woman, who might have been his mother, came and stood next to him.
I saw him give her the rosary.
Maybe, just maybe, the rosary was meant for her.
I don't know.
I only know that I did feel silly walking up to someone I didn't know and giving him a rosary.
God does have a sense of humor.
I think it was worth the risk.
