As our conversation came to a close, I told him most people were very happy to have the help from other states; we wouldn't be where we are now, nearly three weeks later, without it. When the community was feeding the linemen at Beaufort High, I told him I made several batches of cookies. I felt it was the least I could do. He told me, "Sister, you'll be rewarded for that one day." Then, "Have a blessed day, Sister."
That has stuck in my mind. Hebrews 13:2 began resonating with me: "2Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it."
Was he merely an angel from east Tennessee who came to help put our county back together? Or, was he a heavenly angel? Either way, I hope I took the sting off the nastiness he experienced yesterday.
