Each day when I drive to work, I pass people who are standing
on the road with a sign about their need for food and money. Some of them are veterans. Others are in wheelchairs or have children
or pets with them. I want to look away. It's so hard to see them standing there in the cold, rain, and snow. They are committed! Even
though I don't give money, I want to do something.
Recently, I came across a whole box of peanut butter crackers and thought about giving out fortune crackers. Each person gets a pack of crackers wrapped in a piece of paper that has an affirmation like the one above.
It's so important for people to know that life can change and that no matter how difficult things are, they can get better. We are all hungry for food for the body and for the soul.
What is our fortune? Can we change it? Hopefully, each day we will
find new ways to overcome difficulties and to experience a life that
is fulfilling. We are fortunate to have a God who loves us!
Our destiny is to become great. Hear's to a new day with a different
fortune than we expected.
