About a month ago I walked into a coffee shop and the barista asked me, ‘Where do you come from?’
I responded, ‘I’m from here, why?’
He smiled and said, “Because you’re smiling like a European on holiday. Locals don’t walk around looking that!” We both chuckled; I grabbed my coffee and moved on.
I didn’t have time to tell him why I was walking around with this look on my face. But I have time to tell you…
My friend Sarah proceeds to tell a wonderful story about visiting her friend in prison, encouraging him and speaking life over him to the point where their joy and life spilled over into those around them. You can read the rest of her story here… I highly recommend you take the time to read it, such an inspiring story and mental image that goes with it.
