My mission field is sometimes at Costco. I had the honor of driving some wonderful Saints on some errands today so missed the exercise I had planned but ended up near Costco. I always need gas. Several conversations ensued. The gas station attendant was moving slowly. I noticed a cast and got the story on the injury, boot, length of recovery. He was chatty and I wished him well. I saw him. Costco has replaced all of their clunky carts with new. They are lighter and squared. The greeter wanted to talk about how they hold more volume so part of the strategy is to “help” me put more into said cart! She was so happy to talk about it because I asked. I saw her. Hearing aid counter next. How to effectively clean hearing aids was the topic. The water section was blocked off so an employee standing her post brought the water and loaded it into my cart. Thank you. I would like to find out what those cases weigh. I looked at the fire-guy costume that is already waiting for trick-or-treat in my grandsons closet. Berries are always a good idea. I did grab the wrong size paper plates but will use them for pizza gatherings. I hope the new habit from summer of hosting people in my home will continue. Exiting and tried to engage door person who was busy chatting with a fellow employee. No worries – God gives us lots of people if we will only see them. Finally some landscapers, who I noticed when parking, were still there taking up about four parking spaces and standing around the back of a pick-up truck eating (but not the famous Costco pizza). I asked if they were having a picnic? I smiled. I had no intention of them following me to my car and loading stuff like the heavy water. I thanked them. I smiled. I am not special. I am not a gifted orator but I see people. No one accepted Jesus today but I tried to honor the people God already loves whom I do not know. I see people. My nephew, Noah, from 2019 visit to the original Kirkland, CostCo. Now you see people!
