A couple of hours ago, I was switching TV channels and ran across the new T.D. Jakes Show. A young business owner named Mason was telling the Bishop and his audience about finding a thank you letter (above) from a homeless veteran who was fed at his shop (Rosa’s Fresh Pizza, in Philadelphia) because of the kindness of strangers. At first, the paper plate looked like a piece of discarded trash. But then Mason turned it over.
This is what he said about that paper plate.
“I just thought that was a great metaphor, you know, where something that is a little bit messy on the surface is actually quite beautiful when you get a closer look.”
— Mason, owner of Rosa’s Fresh Pizza, on the T.D. Jakes Show 8/26/2015
This resonated deeply with me. It occurred to me that the same can be said of many things that cross our paths. People. Places. Things.
Including Rosa’s Fresh Pizza itself.https://www.instagram.com/p/y49hXkhawp
