Holy Donut

Tracy White is a true Believer trying her best to allow Christ to expose himself through her. Her sensitivity to the poor and outcast humbles and encourages me. This little story is hers and written by her:

As I pull up to the donut shop at 6:30 am, too many times this week I might add,
“Mitch” one of our local homeless men is sitting on the ground outside the shop as he is many mornings. Dirty clothes, stinky, needing a shave and shower. I purposely sit and watch numerous people walk by without even acknowledging him. Reminded of the great command to love our neighbor as ourselves. I’m sure as most of you, I don’t miss many meals. This morning a chocolate twist, dr. Pepper, a sausage kolache, a smile and kindness from another human soul were his breakfast!!!!

Allow heaven to touch earth through you today!!!

Matthew 10:42
And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”
