Brilliant. I find that I do a lot of those things, within the parameters of "modern day." I'm old enough to remember the gas crisis of the 70s...and it made an impact on me.
A beautifully written piece...and I'd like to smack the youngster who was so rude (and, frankly, uneducated and thoughtless) as to say what they did to someone who lived through the Depression.
Thanks for posting...food for thought.
When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.
Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.
