I was on my way in to use the restroom. He said, "How are YOU today, ma'am?"
I said, "I am blessed!" and was in a hurry to get to the restroom...
He mumbled, "I'm not."
I stopped, just long enough to rebuke him and say, "YES, YOU ARE. You woke up this morning. YOU are BLESSED." Then I ran to the restroom. When I came out he was still there. I said, "You have ONE purpose in life. That is to glorify God. IF you woke up this morning, it is because God BLESSED you with a chance to do so."
Then I left.
I didn't have any cash on me. And, I'd already given my snack food to another homeless couple at a corner nearby. So, I feel I did what I should have, in telling him this.
I could tell he was thinking about it as I left.
