Today, I observed an elderly couple – a husband in a wheel chair and his wife – having lunch. I watched how the wife diligently prepared everything for her husband and then herself. Yet, she kept looking around as if she needed something. So I went over and asked her if there was anything I could help her with, she said that they needed some napkins. I grabbed some for her and then watched as she carefully made a bib for her husband. I walked away, but came back a few minutes later on my way out, and asked the man how he was doing; with ketchup on his chin and stained on his napkin bib; his hand shaking, as he held is sandwich; he looked at me (in my eyes) and slurred, 'I am blessed’. It took all I had to hold back the tears. I looked at him and said, “You are, may God be with you both” and walked away.
As I reflect on this moment there is so much beauty to be seen. The Father’s love is grafted throughout this portrait and magnified on so many levels. I will not dissect it because, I can do it no justice but I pray your heart is touched and that you too will see the Father’s love.
His love is everywhere, we need only to look for it, receive it and share it.
