This is not a long story because my encounter only lasted a few seconds. I was exiting I-75 in McDonough Ga. this past Friday and a young man who is down on his luck stood at the bottom of the ramp with his sign. I was unprepared to give him much. I don’t carry much cash these days so I looked in my ash tray to see what coins I had, and was able to find a little over a dollar’s worth.
I keep prayer cards in there as well and just as luck would have it, there was a couple of rosaries there too. When he came to my window the light had turned and traffic began to move. I gave him the coins first and when I gave the rosary and Divine Mercy card to him his face lit up noticibly. He said, “God bless you sir”, I replied “thank you but God wants to bless you too, so take care of yourself and let Him.” With that I had to move on.
