He makes my evenings and often times I find myself passing by the shack just to hear his voice. It doesn’t matter that I would not recognize his face if I met him in daylight since he is almost always sitting there in the darkness alone. I am not even sure of his build. All I look forward to each day I pass by is to hear the wonderful cheer in his voice as he answers my greeting.
He blesses my heart, this stranger in the dark. I find myself taking that route home just to witness the blessing of his voice. He is ever so jolly, full of life and enthusiastic too. He is one who is blessed with good cheer despite his circumstances. And in his quiet little corner he spreads it to those who care to exchange greetings with him.
He makes me think how much we take stuff for granted. Like those among us blessed with good health yet who take it for granted. Then there are those that have most of what they require yet do not think of the less fortunate. Even those among us who wake up to go to beautiful offices, with all the basic requirements and still go on endlessly about the stress on the job. We forget that we are to be of good cheer in whatever little corner God has placed us in our lives.
I count him blessed. Even though he does not have much to his name and has to brave harsh circumstances at his job he spreads a blessing to anyone who is willing to hear the cheer in his voice. For in his own little corner he has chosen to be a blessing in his own quiet way. Anyone who spreads the good cheer despite the storms raging is indeed blessed in the Lord.
