Ministry of Comfort

Yesterday I stopped by a shop in town that specializes in medical equipment.  I was just there a minute, but it was long enough to see compassion at work.  The elderly customer at the counter must have just told the man behind the counter the recent episode in a continuing story and her uncertainty about the outcome, and he told her he'd add her to his prayer list.  Then he reached out and gently touched her on the arm.

That's all.   But it was enough.
