As you are going about your day, running errands, carpooling kiddos, etc...what happens in your heart and mind when you see a homeless person (loaded down with perhaps a backpack maybe using a shopping cart) crossing the street? Or, someone holding up a sign asking for food or money on a street corner? Do you pretend you don’t see them and look away? Do you think to yourself, “Well, they could get work if they really wanted to?” Do you long to give them something but you stop yourself thinking things like, “They will just use the money to buy drugs or alcohol” Or, “I would stop, but I am super busy and don’t have time right now?” I am guessing that all of us have had these thoughts (and many more) that run through our minds at times like these, for we all have our own lens and theologies regarding people in need. May I plant one little seed the next time you come across a person in need? I pray that you remember that we are all created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). I pray that you would look upon these folks as human beings that are worthy of your time, your eye contact, your resources (clothing/food), your love. When we come to the end of this fleeting dash of life and we are in the presence of the Creator of this world and everything in it, when all the nations are gathered before Him (Matt. 25:32) and He says, “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick, and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me…I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of  mine, you did for me” (Matt. 25:35-36; 40)

My Irish Mom
My Irish Mom

by Kelly Robinson March 02, 2018 2 Comments

Going through piles of paperwork from my dad’s house recently I came across a gem. An article about my mom and how she used promotions to gain a customer base for a new shop, Kelly Blueprint, they had opened back in 1977. It opened a few weeks before St. Patrick’s Day. I tear up as I re-read the article. Oh, how I wish my mom was still here to talk with, to ask for her guidance about my own business; I am certain she would have had some creative ideas and wisdom to impart. I know she would have been my biggest cheerleader. How I also wish I had known back then how smart, creative and ethical she was. In the article she mentions how she tried advertising, coupons and other gimmicks to no avail. “We literally got no response” she said. Then she thought to purchase green carnations from the florist next door and send one out with each order. People loved this! And, thus began a string of promotions such as, candy canes around Christmas, “Heart Fund” lollipops on Valentines Day etc.…She says, “Customers began to think of the newcomer in town as an old friend and looked forward to dealing with Kelly Blueprint.” Word-of-mouth soon took over and the rest is history. She also placed a candy jar on the sales counter as well as a vase full of flowers. Brilliant! People in general, I think, love to get a little extra something, a “freebie”, a gift with purchase.
