    ANNONYMOUS FIGURE

    You asked me a question as to who I am,... now let me tell you. I, like
    most men am bound by gravity, life, and the law; an ordinary individual with
    a destiny to fulfill. I am invisible; camouflaged as just another face in the
    crowd; observing the people, places, and things that shares my personal
    space on a day by day basis. Hidden in plain view, I watch as people run at
    the speed of life, with their eyes on their problems, their worries, their
    situations,... and their issues. And of the great many people I see running
    in this rat race, none of them are looking to God, rather, they are looking to
    themselves as a source of help, strength, courage, solitude, and wisdom.
    I'm not totally nvisible though, because God see's me. Not only Got, but the
    people who look to God; the intercessory prayer warrior, the old saints, the
    one that is truly repentant and realizes that all have sinned and have come
    short of Gods glory. They see me as God see's me,... as a soul. I say
    very little, but hear a whole lot. Being slow to speak and quick to hear, I
    don't have to read your mind,... because eventually, you're gonna' tell me
    what I want to know, in all of your unsolicited honesty. I use obscurity as
    my overcoat in the times I just want to steal away and watch. Watch for
    what, and for what purpose? My motives and intentions could e sinister, or
    be it to minister-but its likely that you'll never know,... because as an
    annonymous figure, you can't get close to me, or to put it another way,... I
    won't let you get close enought to figure me out. I'm on of many, and of that
    many being the few that realizes that deeds done in secret are either
    rewarded or punished openly, so it is up to me to watch my actions as to
    not bring attention to myself. That realization is the power of annonymity,...
    the power of being annonymous. So what deeds have I done? More than
    you know, and even more than I'll admit to,... for the good that I do, I go out
    of my way not to be recognized, and the wrong, that is judged by God
    Himself, in His own way. So you ask, who am I? My answer probably left
    you with a bigger question than the one you wanted answered, but in short,...
    I am an annonymous figure, clothed in every day life.

    Rich and Joyce,... thank you for the read. In all of us, to some degree, there is an annonymous figure.

    Sounds like you do things out of the kindness of heart, or just because something may simply need to be done. In depth write, I was all into this.
