What We Need

Seek and find

We all need something.

I need a new power cord.

They need to read the Psalms.

Guy on that bus bench needs a sandwich.  Two.

Fellow on the couch at this Starbucks needs to stay off drugs.

Woman talking to herself, petting a collie who isn’t there, remembering children who moved away ages ago, needs someone to talk to, or a dog, or children who remember.
