“Bro. You’re amazing for this.”
“So, you’re the kind of human who has events cancelled and it affects your income and you do this for others. Cue, “What the world needs now, is love sweet love”…. may you be blessed back beyond measure for being the catalyst in this man’s precious life! Couldn’t love you more!”
“I love that you see people. Such a good reminder to pay attention to the people God puts in your path.”
