Today, I saw God
in the eyes of the homeless
there was contentment

This is true. So many people who have, "everything" are so unhappy and always looking for what will make them happy. And people who have "nothing" are so happy and content with what they have.

I am teary eyed. I feel this. It's beautiful!

Yes, that is a contentment that only God can give. Thanks.

Amen, sis. To Him be the glory.

This is beautiful. It reminds me of the kind of peace St John 14:27 talks about. My 'Thought for Today', thanks.

One love

I think that's a profound verse. God is truly everywhere, we just forget to look sometimes.

Contentment, now that's how i'm feeling today, at peace and these kind words Mr. Bess, much blessing to you today
