As a girl when I stayed with my Grandma Lepp on weekends, she made an effort to leave early on Sunday morning to stop at the doughnut shop before church. While we waited in line, she would tell the homeless guys sitting at tables along the side wall that God loved them, and then ask if she could give them a ride to church just across the street. At first her actions seemed so out of character. Her home, her dress, make-up (she was a Mary Kay Rep), and even her car were impeccable. It was inconceivable she would let an un-showered stranger in her car. But as I grew up, I discovered from my cousins that she did this for each of her Grand kids. She modeled Christ to us, how to love others and how share the good news of God's salvation. That was her true character. This little dish, which belonged to her, reminds me of holding a doughnut wrapped in a napkin in one hand and an orange juice in the other, wearing a pretty dress she made me, and seeing Jesus modeled through her life style as she reached out to others without prejudice.
