Listening to your heart helps someone feel “seen”

If you’ve ever experienced depression or loneliness then you know the feeling of being in a crowd of people but feeling invisible. Because I’ve experienced this I make it a point to pay attention to strangers.

Around Valentine’s Day my daughter and I were in the local Wal Mart when I noticed a little elderly man. He was alone and was taking his time. I noticed he had very little in his cart. I felt that the Holy Spirit was pressing on my heart that this man just needed someone to “see” him. I began to pray as to what I should do. I bought
a Valentine’s Day card and put in some money.

I had my eight year old daughter deliver the card.

The look on that man’s face, wow! it still brings tears to my eyes. I wondered when was the last time that someone “saw” him.
