A Blessing in Disguise

I wanted to capture the swans on camera, but they were a good distance away. A man who looked like a young Sidney Poiter approached me on the boardwalk. "They'll come closer," he said, reaching into a big plastic bag, he pulled out a bagel and pinched off a piece tossing it in the Peconic River. Sure enough many swans came swimming toward us.

It was one of those perfect sunlit mornings as we enjoyed watching him feed the beautiful swans. He opened his bag filled with bagels that a friend had given to him. "This is all I have," he said. Later, I was guided to offer him a "donation" for his sharing. He looked so surprised when I handed him the money, his eyes lit up and his face became radiant in gratitude. Elliot told him, "You feed the birds and God takes care of you." He smiled and nodded as I reminded him of his angels who are always with him.

Both the Bible and the Edgar Cayce readings remind us to not be forgetful to entertain strangers for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

Enjoy your day with the Angels,
