He was lying on his back in a small downtown Atlanta, GA park when I walked up to him on a sunny Sunday morning. With curiosity I asked, "What are you doing, you look very content?" He continued to smile without looking over at me while I was standing to his left. "I am talking to God," he stated.
Mother Teresa said, "We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls." This young man at age 27, finds that to be true.
Homelessness appeared to be far from his mind... Thankfulness for life is what I witnessed.
