The world calls him developmentally disabled. I don't think so. We met on a street corner today. Avoiding eye contact, I was a little afraid of this man dressed in shabby clothes, carrying over-sized bags, and smiling a toothless grin.
Looking straight at me, he stuttered, "H-h-have a gr-gr-eat holiday this week!"
Startled, I said, "I hope you do too."
Excited, he said without a stutter, "Oh, I will! God is so good to me! I thank Him every day. He has blessed me."
"Me too! I love Jesus."
"Me too!!!" he proclaimed.
His mouth opened wide and our hearts were joined as brother and sister in Christ.
I walked away wondering why I don't greet everyone I meet with a smile and a blessing and realizing intelligence is way over rated.
Have a great holiday week!
