Talking Caring for the less fortunate

I walked down the busy sidewalk, fully aware I was late for work, when my eye fell upon one of those

homeless vagabonds found in every modern inner city.



Wearing what can only be describes as rags, carrying every worldly possession in two plastic bags, my heart was touched by this tramp's demeanor.

Some people turned to stare.

Others looked away as if the sight would contaminate them.

Recalling some long-ago Sunday School lesson to "care for the sick, feed the hungry, and clothe the naked," I was moved by inner urge to reach out to this less fortunate.

Where some people saw only rags, I saw the hidden beauty.

A small voice inside my head echoed,

"Reach out, reach out!"



So I did.....

I get out of jail in 6 weeks.
It would be nice to get a card, a visitor, or some more spiritual insights.
