I have to agree with Tom.
I remind myself that there are countless opportunities to encounter Christ everyday. He continuously calls us to selflessness. The next time a homeless guy asks for spare change, look twice. I did again yesterday and saw again that He is not only there for me when I need him but also for all of us through one another. I know spare change is really small thing but perhaps in its smallness it says something too.
Sometimes, things just won't work the way we want them to.
