Attached is a link to my most recent post that ran in last week’s The Florida Times-Union. It’s about an encounter I had with a homeless man. I try to be as authentic as I can about these experiences because what I most want to convey is that service can be complicated, yet regardless of our reservations, it’s always worthwhile.
In this instance, although I felt called l to serve this particular gentleman, I was slow to respond. And, my excuses paled in comparison to his needs. Thinking too much and too big can sometimes thwart our best intentions. More than anything, it’s about the simple act of sharing — despite our obstacles, despite our flaws and humanness, and despite the confusion that we may feel about those in need.
I hope it makes you smile. ~ love, Lara
