there is no such thing as chance

Friday night, Jase and I ran to maceys to grab some treats for a movie date night. We missed the turn we usually take to get there, and had to drive to the far side of the parking lot to get there. As we were pulling in, we saw the most beautiful sight. There, sitting on the corner, was a homeless man. He was dirty, and had all of his personal belongings there on the sidewalk next to him. But on the other side of him, was a young man, with one hand holding the Book of Mormon, and the other around the homeless man, reading to him. They seemed to be in their own world, and I feel so blessed to be able to have witnessed the scene. I don't know either of them, but It inspired me to want to be more like that young man. I know that if I open my schedule for him, the savior will help me find time to bless other's lives with his gospel. I don't think it was a chance thing that We were able to see this scene. Recently, as I was going to study my scriptures, I opened right to Mormon 8:39. Maybe the lord is trying to tell me something... All I know is that I am awfully excited to be less focused on me, and more focused on how I can help others. The lord, I am sure, can move mountains through me if I let him.


P.S. Today, I am thankful for Chocolate.
