During the Christian Writing conference, our instructor gave us an assignment. A five minute writing prompt. The word was “stranger.”
Here is an excerpt from my writings: “A stranger to some could be considered dangerous, but to others it brings a new friend, a new adventure. I hope I can look into each strangers face and see what Jesus sees. I hope I can accept the gift the stranger has for me.”
My “stranger with a hug” encounter. While nervously waiting for my appointment with the publisher, a lady put her hand on my shoulder and said, “You will do good.” She quoted a Bible verse, then hugged me. I relaxed and attended my meeting with confidence, knowing God was with me.
Thanks to the lady in a crowd of 200 who saw me.
