Fragrance of Love’s Actions

Ann Smith, our member who began “Charlotte Food Rescue,” was hauling a station wagon full of donuts to a food shelter. She stopped off to make a pitch to executives of what is now Bank of America. As she rode the elevator to the top floor someone said, “You smell like donuts!” She laughed and told why, and by the time the elevator door opened she had recruited another.

The fragrance of love’s actions is carried on the wind to places we never see.
