Each of them pulled up a chair, one on each side of Jim, and without a thought began helping him eat. These young women had worked with Jim in a community organization where he had been there supervisor. Suddenly, Jim has changed, but their eyes overlooked those changes.
Their young and beautifully manicured hands extended, cutting his food and then feeding him, lifting a cup to his lips, wiping food from his chin or shirt. They didn’t bat an eyelash at what they were doing.
Tears burned my eyes as I realized how present God was with us. Suddenly, the sadness of my brother-in-law’s condition was changed to grace at the hands of others.
An image has been burned into my memory of these extraordinary moments I witnessed. I will never forget their kindness and compassion.
What about you?
