The POWER of Kindness

I received a beautiful guest blog post from Darren Kearny, a fan of Life Vest Inside. His post warmed my heart and I know it will do the very same for you. Enjoy!

One morning I woke up and had a craving for donuts. It’s a treat that I get my wife and I when I have extra money.

This morning I went to a local donut shop to get the donuts for my wife and I; our special occasional treat. As I pulled into the parking lot I noticed a homeless man who had all of his possessions in a shopping cart. He was going through the dumpster that was there. He also sleeps right next to it. It was cold outside and I just wanted to get our stuff and go to our warm home.

As I stood there giving my order I heard myself ordering two extra donuts and a cup of coffee. I asked the clerk to put them in different bags though. I left and put our donuts in the car. And I then walked over and gave the two extra donuts and the very hot cup of coffee to the man. I looked at him and said, “Here I thought you could use something warm.” He thanked me with a genuine appreciation, turned and sat on the ground next to the dumpster that had become his home.

As I drove out of the parking lot I wanted to give him one last wave,but before I could. He raised the cup and gave me a toast. That made my week.

I haven’t seen him for a while and pray that he is okay.

That is the best example of the love of GOD. When GOD moves you to act and you don’t even realize it.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL
