One day, when I was out walking, a beautiful young woman w/her precious newborn baby approached me with her cardboard sign asking for help. (Normally, I would have taken her grocery shopping.) However, I didn't have anything on me to help her, but I wasn't far from my car, so I told her to come with me and I'd give her something. Well, she couldn't understand me, and even though I was pointing toward my car on the other side of the parking lot, she turned and walked away.

When I got back to my car, I got some stuff together for her, and then went back looking for her, but she was nowhere to be found. So, I prayed, trusting Jesus to take care of her and her baby.

Some day, I will publish ... for now, I will just put my thoughts, a tiny taste of what I see Jesus doing in the lives of those I meet by His design ...
Shoulder to shoulder, and grace upon grace, Betty
