I hate to see people eating alone, especially if they are elderly. I have felt this way since I was a kid. Even back then my heart hurt for them. How lonely they must be.
I have had this phobia of having to eat in a restaurant by myself for as long as I can remember. I'm sure it's because I don't want people to feel sorry for me. Isn't that crazy?
I will go to great lengths not to have to do this. In fact, while on my way out of town today, I went through the McDonald's drive-thru and then parked in their parking lot to eat. I was not in a hurry, I just didn't want to dine alone in public. Does anyone else feel this way?
As I was in line at the drive-thru I looked over, and through a wall of glass, I peered inside to see yet another elderly women eating alone. While saying a quick prayer for her, I noticed something! She had her hands folded and head bowed in prayer. I just sat and watched as this women prayed to God. She was not alone at all! She had her Father in heaven right beside her.
I spent the rest of my day giving thanks to the Lord!
Thank you for always being there! Thank you for saving my life! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
You've just got to go here and listen to this!!
You are never alone if you have Jesus!
