"If God had a name, what would it be
And would you call it to his face
If you were faced with him in all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?
What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home..."
With the usual heart pounding and the melody of guilty argument running through my mind I usually end up in the same questioned place, how is it that I've landed in this strange place that I wonder if I'll ever understand...and if your wondering, yes, I often see people giving their money to these people. Over the holidays there was a young woman standing outside of the Target store exit asking everyone if they could spare some change for a hotel room. When AH first told me about her I almost couldn't believe him. A week later baby girl and I had ran into the store for a few things and when we came out the young woman was there asking again...My mothers heart weeped, she looked like she was about 35, and all I could think was, "how did you come to this place that you could do this?" The next thought was fear, even though she did not appear to be a young girl, it is still a dangerous thing to ask strangers even if you are outside a major shopping center. I wanted to say something to her, I wanted to mother her and ask her what she needed and why was she there and tell her that it was too dangerous to do that...I have strayed from my original question and sometimes I wander to places and don't know how I got there... The question, "what value does $125.00 hold?" I think I digressed because I was thinking of how many times I am asked for money, and wonder how many of those askers were of legitimate need... And the question that always follows in my mind...how many are there of legitimate need that never ask, they just suffer in silence, given in by default because they believe that there is nothing that can be done, everything is just what everything is...acceptance.
"If God had a face what would it look like
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like heaven and in jesus and the saints and all the prophets..."
Legitimate : conforming to recognized principles or accepted rules and standards
What value does $125.00 hold? I will reveal the answer tomorrow...
Thank you all for you love, kindness and support during this extremely difficult time for me, I could never begin to express what it means to me...Sleep sweet...
