Good afternoon all,
I know I just posted something a few hours ago but something new I am trying is taking notes when I am out of things I observe and then writing about them later. I did that today as my wife and I went out to eat brunch. The following are a couple of observations I made; take them for what you will….
1. As we were eating, these 2 people were ushered to their seats; they had to be from Chicago as their arrogance actually beat them to the table. (No offense to my friends from Chicago but here in Michigan we notice a “I’m better than you” attitude from them all the time). Not only was their initial table not good enough but the waiter that brought them their water was not greeted with a thank you, go poop yourself, no nod of the head, not even a smile, just continued to look at their menus as if this person (the waiter) didn’t even exist. This may seem like a small thing but its these little lapses in courtesy that build frustration and resentment with folks. You would be surprised what a simple, thank you can do for someone…..
2. On the other side, as we were close to being done with our meal, a busboy was cleaning off a table near us and was singing with this angelic voice that brought instant bliss to my heart. He was singing “My Eyes Are on the Sparrow” or something to that effect. When he had finished with that table, he came over to ours and asked me, “Excuse me sir, may I take your empty plate for you?” It was like I had just been asked by Jesus Himself if He could do something for me. I said, “yes please”. Then I asked, “was that you singing at the other table?” He nodded that it was with a small but humble smile and all I could say was, “awesome!” I truly think I witnessed a true servant of Christ in that encounter. Whether He was an angel sent by God for that particular moment, I’m not sure of, but what I am sure of is this is what Jesus would expect of His people. It gave me a glimmer of hope in what has been a sad few months. Thank you God for that brief encounter that You are in fact still around….
Just a couple of observations from yours truly, enjoy the rest of your day,
