Wishing You and Yours a Christmas of Wonder, Peace, and Love.

I have a place inside me that is not at peace. Yesterday I was approached by a woman setting in a car, with out of state plates. She had been there when I smilingly went by her to go in a store. She stepped out of her car as I was going back to my ol suv. Seems she was on her way to a distant town and needed money for gas. I said "I'm sorry but I live on a small fixed income". After getting directions to the nearest church that might be willing to help, she went on her way. As I started out of town, I couldn't stand it and went in search of her. It's a small town, but she was no where to be found. You see, I had remembered that I had the Christmas money that my parents had given me tucked in my wallet. It would have bought enough gas to get her where she was going. If I had just passed it forward there would not be this unhappy place inside me.
