Catch on fire with enthusiasm and people will come for miles to watch you burn. --John Wesley
This quote best describes my next charm and grace, which was found today. This week it was the most enthusiastic usher I have ever seen. He actually made me cry right in the middle of the sanctuary. Really. (Please do not take into consideration that it is that time of the month, as this will take away from the over all effect :P)
Mr Huggy (my name for usher man), warmed my heart with charm and grace. I watched him loving seat members and attenders. Not only did he seat them, but he gave the most heart warming hugs to the men. It was not like a cheesy kinda forced thing. It was a, I am so glad that you are here to worship with us, brother, hug. He smiled graciously at all that he looked upon, and let all who looked back, know he was happy they were there. Amazing. Charm and Grace...found again. A man who was willing to lay down his pride (right there is a feat for any human being), and do the unthinkable in front of a thousand people...show his emotions and be Christ to all he came in contact with. Be vulnerable. That is what being a Christian is all about...showing Christ to everyone we meet, and being vulnerable. After all, Christ was the best example of one who was vulnerable right???
So Mr Huggy...you have been added to the list of Charm and Grace. You are in the ranks with Smiley Guy, Running Boy, and a Grieving Mother.
