As I sat idling, waiting for the light to change, a man in his late 20s was standing at the intersection with his cardboard sign. I had seen him in that same spot earlier in the week. Two or three cars went through the intersection passing right by him. Another car pulled up and stopped next to him. The lady in the car reached into her passenger's seat and handed the man an oversized envelope. I think he meant to take it and set it next to him, but the lady began talking to him. I could not hear what she said, but I saw the man nod his head once, then twice. She reached out and took his hand. For a moment I was perplexed, but then they both nodded their heads and she prayed over him. It was such a beautiful sight that it brought tears to my eyes. I saw there a true demonstration of godliness. A wonderful reflection of what Jesus has asked of each of us. All of this at an intersection along a boulevard called Victory. Fitting name.
