Today, I met a homeless guy living in a tent community in St. Louis. His name is Patrick and he's 20 years old, and he is from Greenville, Illinois (where I go to college!).
He saw my Greenville College lanyard and really liked it. I have an extra one so I told him would come back and bring it to him. After I told him that his face just lit up. He was so happy that I would come back just to give him a lanyard from his hometown.
Sometimes, it's the small things that can be so meaningful to someone else. Seeing him get that happy about something so small was so inspiring and heart warming. I want to continue to serve. Again, I can't stress enough how amazing it is to allow God to use you.
Nevertheless, I think it made both of our days. :)
