Eyes Wide Open

Four of us recently stepped out of our comfort zone and went into a mens mission to serve dinner.  I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived, but what I found humbled me beyond belief.  We served 134 men.  The men ranged from teenage to an elderly man who must have been in his 80's.  We were complimented and told God bless more times than I can count.  I saw men who were simply thankful for food set before them and others who were grateful for a friendly smile.  A few were silent and chose not to speak, but others would probably have loved to chatted for hours.  My "vision" of a homeless man was forever changed.  I never felt unsafe or unwanted.  I truly look forward to going back.
