[Risks No. 618 – 619] Nick was one of the security guard’s at Ensworth high school when I dropped my daughter off for her Saturday morning swim meet. He was directing pre-coffee-crazed parents on where to land…er, park. He stood out to me. I thanked him for the joy he carries. He stopped, looked at me with sincere eyes and thanked me.
Super quick, wonderfully sweet interaction. I ran into him again later on and asked him about his shoulder. His left shoulder had been injured from sports a long time ago. Prayed for him and the other security guard, Charles. As I was headed out post-meet I saw Nick a third time and he stated how much he needed the encouragement, that he’d had a really tough week. Prayed a third time for peace and rest.
Crazy connection that the Lord just kept on growing. Thanks Jesus!
