Have you ever been out and about only to have a complete stranger approach you with the kindest gesture? What was your reaction; doesn't it just pull you back a bit? If the gesture is one that takes you aback, maybe it's a sign for you to slow down and take notice. Take the time and pay attention to what's going on around you, take the time to notice those around.
Someone who is a complete stranger can sometimes look at you and in an instant recognize that you may need a kind gesture. Maybe it's God way of letting you know He is right there with you. You know He promises never to leave us. So, whenever you need a friend or a comforter just have faith knowing God has already sent one.
You're special! Have an exceptional day!
