Last night I attended a volunteer appreciation night for the prison ministry I am involved with. It was the first time in the 12 years that I had gone to such a function. The highlight of the evening was the talk by an inmate who thanked us for the sacrifice we made for them, for helping the inmates feel human and for continuing to come out. Serenaded by a house band of inmates and two volunteers and fed by the culinary crew the evening was a success.
Every once in awhile we are prisoners to gratitude. The blessings we receive are undeserved and unexpected. What are you grateful for right now?
