Yesterday, after church, I was visiting with a retired pastor. He told me that for the first time he'd visited a prisoner in the jail. He told me the man and his wife had 10 children and the pastor wondered if we could give some of the food we'd collected for the local food pantry directly to these people. I thought we could and should. I headed out and got in my car, and the thought came into my head that I should get out of the car and go inside and give the pastor a check for the family. This thought wasn't the typical stream of consciousness thinking I usually do. It came from outside me. I got out of the car, ran back and gave the pastor a check, which he will cash and give the family money anonymously.And I was so very grateful that I had the means to do this. I didn't tell my husband and I won't tell anyone else. But I wanted to share this because I've probably missed other opportunities to help people when I had the ability to do so.Gail
