Homeless in DC #3

The Trash Collector

At the foot of the Washington Monument
stands
a homeless person.
A beggar.

He picks up small pieces of paper
discarded on the ground,
reads them,
collects them, and
places them in the closest
trash barrel.

A poor man,
a good citizen,
and a child of God.

Wonderful homeless poor man! And you took this notice of him! Then his life is a buttress to such portions of the scripture; be not weary of the good you do. Some day some time it will be noticed and if not, God will always remember the good work. Sincere labour could be tasking and some may tell us it is of no use for there is no reward attached to this, but some one is looking at the thought irrelevant labour of love you rendered in the unnoticed corner of the church and society. But we need to know this, even in our prison; we must be true to our responsibility, for so was Joseph in the prison, and this worked for him thereafter. I believe God is in ascheme we may not understand. Just as the deeds of the poor Homeless in DC is brought through internet and I can read from Nigeria as many others will do around the world likewise our good deeds, though unnoticed will be spoken about some where and sometime blessing souls and lifting up. This is a lesson, we should not be discouraged in doing the little we can in a best way, it has reward! Thanks and may God bless your heart, mind and pen ( Amen)
