I walked down the river walk earlier this week.
First I came across a gentleman that asked if I wanted him to play me a song…I told him I’m sorry but I don’t have any money,
the man smiled and said, ” Okay, then.” and walked away.
The second man I walked by asked me if I wanted him to sing me a gospel song…I told him I am sorry, but I don’t have any money. The man smiled and walked away saying, ” Okay, God bless you anyway.”
Finally as I got down to the end of the riverwalk I stopped to read a tribute statue about slaves. As I walked away a man was standing by and asked if I wanted a palm frans that he had made into a rose.
And as I began to tell him I didn’t have any money…
He said to me, ” It’s not about that.”
I think that gentlemans words really spoke volumes to me, and it should to all of us.
Savannah has a lot of poor areas, and that man could have very well been giving me something he would usually charge someone to possibly put food on the table for his children.
Out of his own dear heart, he gave what he had, to bless me.
It’s about perspective.
That’s all I wanted to say for now. I’ll leave you with one of my favorite songs.
