This morning while in town making some purchases, I saw a gentleman with a physical disability in his legs and feet. Because of this deformity, he had to crawl on his hands and knees. But in order to protect them from too much damage, he had put flip flops on his hands and rubber boots on his knees.
My heart nearly broke into as I approached him on the sidewalk. Holding back the tears, I held my head up high and put on my best smile to greet him with a “Buenos Dias” (Good Morning), wanting instead to burst into tears. He was so thrilled that someone had acknowledged him and he, too, returned a huge smile and a lovely “Buenos Dias”.
As I passed him, I couldn’t fight the tears and I prayed, “Thank you Jesus for my perfect legs, that are strong and can walk anywhere I desire. Thank you for this wonderful blessing that so often is taken for granted.”
And I prayed for a special blessing on that brave gentleman. Because, think about it, how many of us could crawl a mile in his knee fashioned rubber boots???
