THE HOMELESS AND HIS DOG. (PART 2)

THE HOMELESS & HIS DOG. (PART 2)

My concept was changing, too. We finished our dessert and gathered his things. Just outside the door, he paused he turned to me and said, "Come you blessed of my Father and inherit the Kingdom I have prepared for you. For when I was hungry you gave me food, when I was thirsty you gave me a drink, I was a stranger, and you took me in."
I felt as if we were on Holy ground. "Could you use another Bible?" I asked.
He said he preferred a certain translation that traveled well and was not too heavy. It was also his personal favourite. "I've read through it 14 times," he said.
"I'm not sure we've got one of those, but let's stop by our Church and see," I was able to find a Bible for my new friend that would do well. He seemed very grateful.
He smiled, and the warmth of his spirit radiated the genuine sincerity of his mission. I drove him back to the town-square where we had met two hours earlier, and as we drove, it started raining. We parked and unloaded his things.
"Would you sign my autograph book?" he asked... "I like to keep messages from folks I meet."
I wrote in his little book that his commitment to his calling had touched my life so deeply. I encouraged him to stay strong. And I let him go with a verse of The Scriptures from Jeremiah, "I know the plans I have for you, declared the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans to give you a promising future and hope."
"Thanks man," he said. "I know we just met, and we are really just strangers, but I love you anyway."
"I know," I said, "I love you too." "The Lord is good!!"
"Yes, He is. How long has it been since someone hugged you?" I asked.
"A long time," he replied. "But with my beloved dog, we hug each other every day."
"If you truly love living beings, you won't ever hurt them..."
So, on the busy street corner in the drizzling rain, my new friend and I embraced, and I felt deep inside that I had been changed... He put his things on his back, smiled his winning smile and said, "See you in the New Jerusalem."
"I'll be there!!" It was my reply.
He began his journey with his beloved dog again. He headed away with his sign dangling from his bedroll and pack of Bibles. He stopped, turned and said, "When you see something that makes you think of me, will you pray for me, please?"
"You bet," I shouted back, "God bless."
"God bless." And that was the last time I saw him.
Late that evening as I left my office, the wind blew strong. The cold front had settled hard upon the town. I bundled up and hurried to my car. As I sat back and reached for the emergency brake, I saw a pair of well-worn gloves neatly laid over the length of the handle. I picked them up, thought of my friend, and wondered if his hands would stay warm that night without them... 
Then, I remembered his words: "If you see something that makes you think of me, will you pray for me?..."
Today, his gloves lie on my desk in my office. They help me see the world and its people in a brand new way, and they help me remember those two hours with my unique friend and his beloved dog, and to pray for his Ministry. "See you in the New Jerusalem," he said. Yes, John, I know I will...
"I am a temporary passanger... I shall pass this way but only once. Therefore, any good that I can do or any kindness that I can show, let me do it now, for I shall not pass this way again."
The homeless uttered his wisdom. Awesome!!
Prayer is a powerful energy. Prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost, but lots of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another. Do not pelt with harsh words!! Show kindness to others, for you'll never know when someone is undergoing hurdles and hurting somehow. Live today to the fullest, for tomorrow is not promised to anyone. If I (Starry) am not here in the future, just remember my inspirational poetry, my words of wisdom with joy, with a smile in your pretty faces. You must know for sure that I won't be here forever. We are temporary passangers in this world. Let us pray together now...
Dear Lord,
Heavenly Almighty Father, I ask You to bless my dear friends, relatives, family members,  Email and Blogger buddies right now, and embrace them into Your loving arms. Show them the way, a new revelation of Your unconditional love and mighty power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirits at this very moment of reading this message. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt or no self-esteem, release a renewed assurance and confidence through Your grace.
In the Holy and Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, I pray. AMEN.
God bless, and have a nice day!!
Thank you for reading My Monthly Newsletters!
I let you know that I have especially created this blog only for those folks who are interested in remaining in touch with me, folks who truly welcome my comments in their blogs. Otherwise, there is no point for me to fuel something that is not there, to be left alone, neither to keep on going with this blog any longer...
I really need much encouragement and moral support to see my own self-worth towards others, in order to not have a blank page, or an empty book. You see, I retired my poetry corner and inspirational site due to my health issues and personal matters.
I am still undergoing unpleasant health issues, such as asthma, allergy, overweight, fatigue, tachycardia, emotional issues, and so on... I do not think I'll last for long. I am so tired, so worned out...
I shall see what I'll do with my life...
Bye for now,
STARRY.

Hi Starry Dawn,

I enjoyed the rest of this story, very nice.

I am sorry you are so down. Is there someone where you live that you can talk to? A counselor that can help you through these issues?

I will be praying for you hon.

Isaiah 49:13
Shout for joy, you heavens;
rejoice, you earth;
burst into song, you mountains!
For the LORD comforts his people
and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.

Thank you, Child of God for coming over and caring!!
All I would need is to feel welcome in my beloved ones life.
That is all...
Doctors can't help me about this.
Blessings,
Poet Starry Dawn.

Oh, Child of God!! Now, I am OK...
Love you, my dear Online friends!!
Please, do not leave me alone...
I still care for your wonderful friendship in Christ.
I have troubles in posting my comments in some interesting blogs.
It makes me so frustrated.
Maybe, I am not welcome...
Should I see the doctor about that?? It is not an illness, I guess. It's a computer issue, or a cookie setting for some folks .
If I do not have problems, then I'll be OK. I am emotionally unstable since birth, yet I try to overcome these issues, if I get help from my dear friends and family. If people love me, I'll be OK. But, if people ignore me, I'll feel so sad, unwanted, unloved and forsaken. Doctors can't cure my need of love. Some folks say,"Do not care about what people say!..." Doctor Paul, Medical Surgeon, is my companion. I have a doctor at home every day. Today is his birthday, October 3rd. Paul turns 71 years old today. He is working as a Chief Surgeon at the Public Hospital Emergency Room. He will RETIRE one day soon, hopefully...Then, I'll be happy going back home with my dear family in the States. I miss them!
You see, I've got an Italian heart, just like my dear mother. My heart is full of love and caring ways. Some folks do not understand how much love I would need to just barely survive a little longer. My Psychiatrist passed away unfortunatelly. He had cancer in his lungs first, then in his brain. He was only in his early 40's. I still miss him. He used to understand me so well. Bye for now, dear friends. Thank you for visiting me!! Please, do not leave me alone, visit me. I don't want to feel sad or lonely anymore. Can you understand me?...
I really need interactions with my dear family and friends. Otherwise, I feel lonely, so sad.
Much love in Christ always,
Poet Starry Dawn.
