A tiny woman with a puzzled look and words tinged with an accent from no place around here. She seemed to have gathered her gumption to ask a passing stranger for help.
And wise, young mom taught her preschool daughter an important lesson. She stopped to listen and respond with kindness.
The older woman was asking where to get a shopping basket (the ones you carry on your arm) like the mom had. The mom asked if she needed one, and the tiny woman asked her question again.
With a smile that could light up a room and was reflected in her daughter's eyes, Mom offered their basket. The store didn't have what she was looking for and so was only getting milk. She reassured the woman, handing her basket, as she and her daughter went on their way.
The whole thing couldn't have taken a minute. Maybe that's why Kelly calls them holy "MOMENTS". Showing kindness, being the hands and feet of Jesus doesn't have to take a long time.
Holy moments don't need a plan or a committee. Don't worry, Dear Reader, you don't need an impressive resume' or advanced degree. No experience is required, and it's never too late to start.
How's your Holy Moment Experiment going, Dear Reader? Where's the coolest place you found a holy moment hiding this week? Were you seeking it, or seizing the opportunity?
