Inspiration can come to us from the most unlikely places and people at times. When I read an article like this, I'm put to shame about how little I do compared to these good people. No matter how little they have, they give it to those they feel are more needy! The word that comes to mind right off the bat is "HERO!"
The Living Bulgarian Saint
Dobri Dobrev is well-known to many people in his native homeland of Sofia, Bulgaria, where he has been regularly begging on the streets for decades. What many do not know however, is that Dobrev doesn’t keep a single cent from the proceeds. Instead, he uses the money to fix various churches and monasteries and pay for the upkeep of orphanages.
So far, he has donated over $52,000 while living on a measly pension of about $100 a month. Dobrev, who is nearly 100 years old and lost his hearing in World War II, discusses his mission in this local television interview.
It's hard to see someone like this old man doing something like this and realize how much more I could do. I guess that my heart isn't as humble as this old and wonderful man! God bless him!
Coffee in the kitchen again this morning. Anyone care for a bear claw?
