More on homeless guy encounter

I think what bothered me most about this "meeting" if you will, is that I feel like he was grouping me into this "society" he perceives.  This middle-class, wasteful, plastic-happy, SUV-driving mom, trying to feed a homeless guy to make herself feel better and check off charity work in her bucket list.  

Yes. I am bothered because I felt homeless guy judging ME.

That's just sucky, Amy. I know that you had God's heart in the situation. Don't let this discourage you from doing what you're called to do. Who knows what the encounter did to the homeless guy. Perhaps he's blogging about it right now too?

Hi Amy~
I came to your page to look at the new auction item and found your story about the homeless guy. I just wanted to encourage you and let you know that even though things didn't turn out exactly how you had expected or hoped, it took such courage to do what you did and our mighty God is certainly pleased with your effort. :)
I'm sure there was an impact from your kindness, you just may never know exactly what it was...and that's ok. :)
Keep pressing on, sister!
