Secret Blessings

top secretWhen I was growing up there was one man that was always at our church. Weekdays, weekends, it didn’t matter – he was there. And it wasn’t our pastor. It was our custodian.

He wasn’t a “churched” man, per se. He was there because it was his job. But over the years he came to know Jesus and the change in his smile was the proof. He didn’t have a glamorous job. Many people probably paid him little attention. And I know in a small town, at a semi-small church, he probably didn’t make much money.

I don’t know when it started, but one year at Christmas my parents slipped a fairly decent sized amount of money in his mailbox at church. Then the next year they did the same. Year after year completely secretly they gave him a “Christmas Bonus.”
